Reds and Whites TO Dye Pressed Flowers

Pressed Sweet Autumn Clematis

On the right we have red, the middle is original color, the bottom is enhanced white.

We’ve had some great success with dying pressed flowers to look natural. We’ve also had a little failure, but we learn from failure so we’re good with it. Below are some test samples showing flowers in their natural condition and after treatment. I tried a little green with one of the carnations but I don’t like it. We need to tone it down.
Pressed Celosia Flowers

The Celosia flower on the right is the original color, the one on the left is treated with red.


Pressed Bachelor Buttons

The top left flower is original, the white on the right is treated, the red is treated.


Color Enhanced Carnations
