: hi i was wondering if anyone knows how to preserve vines so they dont go brown and rott, as im making a outfit out of vines for my clothing assesment at school and need them to look green.
: thank you.

Hi Lily,

You would have to soak them in glycerine to preserve them. That would keep them soft and supple. It's also used in making soap.

Many craft stores sell it. I know that www.Joann.com has it.

Good luck,
Newt
