How to create fish Telescope on the Pressed Plant Art.

Updated: Jan 14

In this article, I'll show how to create the Pressed Plant Art with fish Telescope in the aquarium. You will see photos of botanical materials and the sketch for the Pressed Plant Art.

I found out that petals of gladioluses such color as shown on the photo below after drying under the press become almost black. This color I need for the black fish Telescope.

To imitate water plants on my Pressed Plant Art I’ll need: dried under press dark green color algae, flowers of veronica and celosia, seeds of silk tree.

I'm gluing prepared dried under press plants to make an image of pebble and water plants and the figure of the fish Telescope. I'm doing vacuum sealing for my ready Pressed Plant Art "Fish Telescope".
