Glycerin bath experiment – gone wrong :(

Two days into the glycerin bath experiment, I think I might have screwed it up – brown blemishes started appearing on the parts that were covered by mason jar lids.

Did the metallic lids react with glycerin?
Or was it the aluminium tray?
I wish I knew.

I’m not even sure if these two days have contributed any good in colour preservation, but the leaves feel significantly softer now.

Note to self: try glass/ceramic tray with perhaps coasters to weigh the leaves down next time?
