Christine de Beer Floral Lifestyle Design

Prevent scratches, rust and water stains on display surfaces

Polyethylene (PE) Foam sheet.

Polyethylene (PE) foam sheets are spongy and non-abrasive. You can save and up-cycle the foam you get as protective packaging or purchase it from electronic component or packaging supply stores.

Cut the foam to exactly fit the base of your container.

Cut the foam to exactly fit the base of your vase. I also use this under concrete, stone or metal cans or containers.

Smooth the foam.

Smooth the foam flat over the surface. The foam will stick and create a crush proof layer between the vase and the surface that you want to protect.

The foam is almost invisible.

The foam is almost invisible and if you look carefully it looks like sandblasted glass

This is my ongoing creative workbook to research and capture design projects and techniques. You will mostly find ideas for floral art but I will also include some other projects such as gift packaging, cards and even cake decorating with a few lifestyle projects arranged in between.

Everything you see in this workbook was designed, made and photographed by me, unless specific credit is given to another designer.
