How do I preserve a 4 lief clover?

I want to preserve my first 4 leaf clover.
This is the first 4 leaf clover I have ever found.
I was just sitting there enjoying the evening breeze and there it was right in front of me, it is the 649 lottery night and I have two tickets.
I hope I did not use up my good luck finding the 4 leaf clover.
And I get preparing the leaf by book pressing as in this Instructable.
I want to do it right the first time in resin.
Is there an Instructable on suspending delicate  leaves in resin?

I used to embed fragile leafs in a two part epoxy called Castolite... It was low shrink rate and let me copy a 45 RPM record under vacuum to remove pop bubbles, which I still posses !..

I have been chasing every casting resin I can think of and I cant find a kit anywhere.

There is a Michael's store in 150 First St, Unit C

Orangeville Mall
Orangeville, ON L9W 3T7
Phone: (226) 706-8505

Is that near you ?

I forgot about Michael's, they just opened and I've never been in their store. I'm only in Orangeville at night when they are closed or to see the eye specialist at which time I'm in no shape to go shopping. A few years ago that part of the mall was destroyed by a Tornado.

We had a tornado try to touch down on Lake Tahoe a few weeks back..

Thanks for the BA..

Simple way is to press it between 2 sheets of kitchen paper and 2 heavy books. After a week or 2 it will have dried and you can stick it to some paper and put it in a small pcture frame.

I have it between paper now I was wondering about a resin I can suspend it in once it is dry.

This isn't about casting leaves, but it may be helpful: I'm not sure I've seen anyone else on the site do as much casting as Peter Brown.
