For something as potentially fragile as this, preservation is the key.
To preserve the toast, it was first sprayed with a high-density lacquer to essentially lock it in and keep it from disintegrating over time.
When framing these two pieces, every aspect of the design was sealed up, to enclose the toast completely.
The box was then built up and around it, finished with a beautiful Italian frame, to complete the memory.
So an edible, fleeting moment has become a gorgeous keepsake. Love it!
