I understand that my preserved floral arrangement is giving new life to my special flowers, not a recreation of my bouquet design. I will receive overnight shipping instructions (if applicable) and will receive a photo of the condition the flowers are in when they arrive (fresh flowers only). Watershed Trends is not responsible for poorly wrapped or mistreated blooms. Although careful selection of the best blooms will be used, sometimes parts of petals can be bruised during their creation and at the event before reaching Watershed Trends’ studio. This may possibly cause a translucent spot after they are cast. Nothing can be done to prevent this type of bruising and it is not visible until cast.
I understand that due to the nature of any type of floral preservation not every flower maintains its original color. Many will dry a vibrant version of its original color but will darken a few shades and some types of blooms dry a different color altogether. All the flowers will still have their beautiful original shape. I also understand it is my responsibility to choose an appropriate display location away from sunlight. All epoxy chemistry will amber over time but Watershed Trends uses a product with advanced UV inhibitors that help it to resist color change longer than any other competitive product in today’s market to ensure your artwork lasts for years to come.
I understand I am purchasing a handmade piece of commissioned art. Although every effort is taken to make the piece stunning, there will be a few bubbles and the piece will not be completely free of natural debris. There are lines visible on the sides of the piece that show every layer carefully poured to encapsulate your precious flowers. These are a normal part of the process and do not detract from the beauty of the piece.
I understand this is a specific timely process and I will have only one day to respond to my PayPal invoice of the owed balance before it should be cast. Waiting longer could cause potential harm to my flowers. The botanical artist (Watershed Trends) will be designing your artwork and you may have a choice if you would like a preview or to be surprised. *Previews are offered only for 6″x6″ blocks and larger and are not available for the bookends or 4″ cube. For smaller pieces we hope you will communicate in advance which blooms you hope to preserve and we will work to accommodate your request.
If I chose to view my layout I understand that shifting and floating is occasionally unavoidable during the pouring stages. The artist will keep the composition of the layout as close as possible to the planned layout but sometimes edits will be forced in order to maintain the best integrity of your piece. Due to the time sensitive nature of each pour, these edits will be at the discretion of the artist.
Deposit: To commission any artwork made with your flowers a $450 minimum order must be met with an Essential Keepsake and you may add Collection Additions if you wish. A deposit of $250 is required to reserve your event date. This deposit will be applied to your final bill. The deposit is NOT refundable as Watershed Trends is committing resources for your selected date. When your collection is designed and we are ready to cast, the balance including shipping and sales tax will be sent and is due within a day of receipt. Expect approximately 20 weeks for the entire process to be completed and for your item to leave the studio. Timeline is subject to change without notice.
