You may visit a cake decorating supply shop and purchase
powdered egg white to paint onto fresh flowers such as
pansy, violet and others. My technique was printed in
"Herb Campanion" magazine 1997 or 1998 - The flowers are
then dried and stored in plastic containers with facial
tissue (to keep moisture out). This technique is good
for using flowers to add decoration to desserts, and
many of the flowers are edible!
