⦁ Items Required
⦁ Water Soluble Food Coloring
⦁ Fresh White Roses
⦁ Vases or other containers
The process broken down into steps follows:
⦁ Every rose should have his thorns remove and the stem should be shortened to 7-8 inches.
⦁ Prepare the food coloring. Take four or five glasses and fill them with water, drop different hues of food coloring in each one and make sure that ink dilutes well in each recipient.
⦁ We will now split the stems, refer to the illustration above for graphic aid. You can split the section of the rose however you consider fit but to start with a knife that would split the stem into four pieces could do the job very well. It is important to make this cut as precise as possible as the water transport system must remain intact for the process to work properly. Repeat the process for all your roses.
⦁ It is time now to feed the roses. Place each part of the four into a different recipient in the attempt to gain 4 hues on each rose. Play with their position. A useful trick is to use scotch tape to ensure the stability of the roses.
⦁ In 4 to 48 hours changes should occur as the roses are slowly absorbing the colors. This process is influenced by numerous factors from ink`s quality to the rose`s size so be patience and don`t give up if your first attempt fails.
⦁ Once your roses have absorbed the colors harvest them from your coloring workstation and plant them in your décor, these will become a brilliant focal point.
