Day 9: Stamping Tip - Dyeing Paper Flowers

Day 9:  Dyeing Paper Flowers *

Step 1Mix any Exclusive Inks™ re-inker and water in a craft jar. The ratio of water to re-inker will determine the saturation of your chosen color.

« Step 2Use eyelet tweezers to gently and quickly place the paper flower into dye bath and pull out. (The longer you leave the flower in the dye bath, the wetter it will get, increasing the chances of losing flower ridges and shape.) Rinse if color is too dark.

Step 3Lay flower on paper towels to dry. Make sure you have several layers of towels, as the inked water will soak into them.
