Stiffening a 3D Crochet Project

I'm making a 3D crochet water lily out of acrylic yarn and I would like to waterproof and stiffen it to place it on my daughter's grave. Do you have any suggestions for methods of stiffening such a product?

You can soak it in starch. Then spray with Scotchgard waterproofing spray.

Starch will make the crochet stiff, however, rain and humidity will make the crocheted article less stiff and may return it to it's original state. You can restarch, of course, but the same will happen in the next rain. There are water resistant stiffeners you can consider.
