Default Flowers in acrylic

Hey everyone, still kinda new here so if I'm posting out of turn, I apologize. My wife and I are pretty crafty, she does crochet/sewing/etc and I wood turn. She thought it would be cool to put herbs, flowers, etc in acrylic and we gave it a go with some Chamomile tea leaves we picked up during our travels in Crete, Greece. I used allumilite resin with pearlex summer gold and sunshine yellow (I think that's their names?) I think it came out ok.

Any advice on adding flowers to acrylic...use a dehydrator, etc?
