I have a unique toadstool in my yard. Is there a safe way to preserve it?
Photograph it! There is truly no way to preserve it that won't cause some changes. Lucite may be work (the kind you make and pour) but there is no guarantee and it is expensive and dangerous to work with.
Post back what you decide!
The only I know how to do this is with a clear resin. They use this to make different types of bookends or to preserve flowers. You will need to make a box or a mold holder to put this in. Normally plastic works well to do this. Now place the toadstool in the box and pour the resin in. Allow it to harder and when done you will have a perfect toadstool that you can sit on your desk and admire each day.

Hi, Does any one have any ideas on how to dry and save toadstools? I am working on baskets made from twigs and I thought the toadstools would make a nice decoration.
Wow, the baskets sound like they would be really neat. Sorry I can't answer your ?? about drying the toadstools. I don't know where you live or what kind of toadstools you're talking about but here in Texas a lot of them are poisonous. Just something to consider if these "decorations" will be around small kids.
Have you thought of making the toadstools from clay, instead? Good luck!
