What are conditions of making color?

Before starting your DIY project, it's important to understand some information about sola flowers, especially regarding the suitable dyeing methods based on their condition.

Which flowers can be dyed after they are finished?

Flowers with straight petal edges and sufficient thickness are suitable for dyeing after they are finished. The straight edges provide stability and strength when the petals become wet during the dyeing process.

Which flowers are not recommended for dyeing after they are finished?

Flowers with twisted, crimped, curled, embossed, or folded petals are not suitable for dyeing once they are finished. The curled petals may loosen and change the shape of the flowers when they become wet, resulting in undesirable outcomes.


How to achieve color for these types of flower designs?

1. Dye the sola sheet before assembling the flower: In this method, the sola sheet is dyed before being used to create the flower. This allows for more control over the color application.

2. Use color spray on finished flowers: Instead of dyeing the finished flower, you can opt to use color spray. This method helps avoid deforming the flower and provides a way to add color without compromising the structure.

Keep in mind that sola flowers are made of natural materials, and their ability to absorb color can be uneven from piece to piece. This is due to the spontaneous and uncontrollable factors related to the density of the material. Therefore, it's normal to observe variations in color, even within the same sola flower. If you require more consistent and precise colors, we recommend considering mulberry paper flowers instead.
