Mortensen's wife, Libby, shows a more artistic technique to preserve plants. Participants watched her roll black ink onto the specimen to create a bold print. She also suggests experimenting with fabrics, sketches, and photographs. All materials used in the workshop may be purchased at arts supply stores or herbarium supply companies. For more information on plant collections, the Mortensens suggest visiting the Web site of the United States National Herbarium.
