I like to have a package of COLOR ME CRAZY Paintable Flowers on hand for the times I need flowers and don't have the right color! flowers. I am planning a patriotic project and need red, white and blue flowers! I couldn't find any flowers that were the right color. Most of the blues were a shade of dusty blue. Today I am painting flowers with my GO TO paint SPLASH INKS!
The Color Me Crazy Flowers at AlteredPages.com more than paintable. You can stamp, chalk and ink the too!
Today I am using SPLADH INKS and the Color Me Crazy Flowers! Use them on paper and porous surfaces. Rich pigments last forever. Mix with mediums, glitter and more. Only four colors come in the package of SPLADH INKS Yellow, Magenta, Blue and Black.
With SPLADH INKS you can create over 100 colors using the recipes included in the package!
Five drops of magenta SPLASH INK was used on a wet flower and it came out to this pale pink color. Just dipping the petals tip and letting the color wick created the beauties.
The recipe I used for my red flowers: 1 drop yellow, 2 drops black and 10 drops magenta mix and I got a beautiful red
I drenched the flowers in water and let the paint wick. Let them dry and put the tips in the paint again.
The blue ink was perfect with out mixing it with any of the other colors. Again I drenched the flowers in water and let the paint wick. Let them dry and then dipped the tips in the paint again.
I worked on a craft mat to protect the surface. Below the flowers are drying. When the flowers are wet they look a lot darker.
I was pleased when the flowers dried the final color of red and blue.
Layering the flowers together they look very patriotic. Now I am ready for my patriotic project!
Hope I have inspired you to paint some flowers!
