Yes I have. I have used RIT dye and tea. You have to really play with it to get a realistic look but it is doable. I submersed the whole rose for five minutes then held just the top half in for 3 min then just the tip for 2 minutes. But that is a rough estimate. It depends how strong you mix your dye what shades you are going for ect.

@secondchances:  Sounds cool!  If I choose to go that route, how will the dyes effect my wedding dress?  I guess I’m just worried they might rub off …

I own a flower shop. There is actually “Floral Spray” that you can buy that’s meant to color artificial and real flowers. The brand is called “Design Master.” You can purchase it online and perhaps in Hobby Lobby stores. Once it sets for about 24 hours, the rub-off on your dress shouldn’t be an issue.

@Wed2Attn:  +1. It’s $7.99 a can at the moment. I’m getting it to dye my artificial foam roses.
