CrystalDry Flower Drying Silica Crystals

This professional-grade desiccant is ideal for the fast and effective drying of flowers, greenery and other organic matter prior to resin casting projects. With a fine grain size of 0.5mm to 1mm it's perfect for drying small and large flowers alike. Drying flowers using CrystalDry flower drying silica crystals helps to retain the shape and colour of the flowers without causing damage to delicate petals.

CrystalDry works by removing the moisture from the organic matter by absorbing it. The crystals can be reused many times until they have absorbed too much moisture, they can then be reactivated through gentle heating in the oven and used over and over. Allow between 3 and 7 days drying time, although items with a high moisture content may require more time.

Supplied in a bucket with lid and handle for easy handling and storage. The bucket is oversized to allow you to fit in your flowers and greenery for drying.

Available in pack sizes of 500g, 2kg and 5kg.
