I have recently taken an interest in decorating hats and I've had a hard time finding realistic looking flowers that aren't silk. I have discovered some beautiful paper flowers that people use for scrap booking, but they are usually on the small side. I've thought of dried flowers too.
Does anyone have any suggestions as to a good place to look for non-silk artificial flowers?
What about preserving real flowers with silica? (I'm not sure it'd work if you live in a humid climate.)
