Dyeing to Obtain Exotic Colors

Coral-and-Aquamarine Pressed Flowers

Dyed Coral and Aquamarine Pressed Bougainvillea and Queen Anne’s Lace Flowers

I have a lady who sometimes likes colors that are not naturally found in nature. This is a time-consuming process, but easy to do with dyes formulated for dyeing flowers that have already been pressed.

First I mix the dyes to obtain the desired color, then apply the dye using a small soft paint brush. This request was for several varieties of pressed flowers in turquoise and coral. I didn’t think I’d like them but I was wrong. We got some interesting results, so I thought I’d share a picture.
