Nice idea, making jewelry out of mushrooms :thumbup:

Just dry them as you would dry any other mushroom; i.e. in a warm, well-ventilated place. Shellac sounds like a good way to bring out the colors once dried; I'd recommend drying them out completely and then treat with shellac as soon as possible to prevent degradation. I suspect that UV light is detrimental to the colors, so keep them out of direct sunlight as much as possible.

As I understand, turkey tail tea should taste a tad bitter and fungal, but I haven't tried it personally. There's a few other people around here, some of them actually enjoy the taste. It's an acquired one, in any case.

Btw, consider using a . or a , once in a while. It really improves the readability of your posts.

Turkey tail tea doesn't taste bitter at all, its actually kind of sweet. It also contains PSK, the same anti-tumor compound found in Reishi.

When drying mushrooms of any kind, air-flow is more important than heat.

A warm heater on high air is better than a hot heater on low air.

Good Luck!!!

I stand corrected. I knew about the tumor suppression stuff, but I've never tried it (yet).
