Ready to create easy, custom tie dye flowers without waiting for them to soak up food dye randomly? You may have seen this painting roses technique in the Galaxy Roses DIY post, but I wanted to separate these out for those that need additional inspiration to grab some paint and get to being creative.
For these “tie dye” roses, I used paint spray by Design Master called COLORTOOL.

What Color Live Flowers to Use?
Because this is spray that covers the whole petal, you can use any petal color.
I typically buy lighter color flowers to make it easier to see when I am spraying dark on where I have missed, so yellows, whites, and light pinks.
How to use Live Rose Paint Spray
The important part when you use spray on live flowers, is that you are careful not to spray too heavy or too close to the flowers.
While the spray is fine for live plants and flowers, you can accidentally wilt your rose petals by over saturating them or beating them down with spray that is too close.
Starting away from your flowers, spray lightly and start to gauge the flow of the paint and then move around the flower and into the petals gently.
You may need more than one coat to achieve the look you are going for.
How long do Painted Roses Last?
I have found no difference in the length of time a rose lasts painted with this paint than any other time.
The only difference is if I over spray and damage the petals, but overall they last normal rose time and display beautifully.
If I was making for a wedding, homecoming, or Prom, I would create the day of to have the freshest, most beautiful flower.
