I have used floral spray, but only once a while ago for mother’s. I actually did two different things. For the ones I sprayed on, I used about 4 coats, light coats. Keep your spray not so close to your flowers, I was using roses, but I practiced first on others I had at home. Let each coat settle. Now for the other ones, I placed my flowers on a water filled vase, the water was tinted with food coloring. This process will dye the flowers, but you have to check on the color to achieve the one you like, maybe you can practice with a few cheaper ones as well. Hope it helps. 🙂 Good luck.

Hi! when spraying floral arrangments you should use design master spray paints.. they can be found at your local michales or even joaans.. but do try a sample.. i attempted on diffferent kinds of floweres and some turned out beautiful others hardened …. I know that if you use that spray on real flowers it works better.. i have seen it! hope that helps! sorry if it doens’t!

I didn’t know you could spray paint flowers. Although I do have ” painting the roses red “from Alice in wonderland stuck in my head

You could just buy white hydrangeas and add whatever shade of blue you like (good quality food coloring) to the water a day or so before and the flowers will soak it up, the same way they soak up nutrients.

That is the same way they come up with all of the crazy colored gerbera daisies. You could buy a few small bunches ahead of time to test the color. I’d get a few shades and a few differet brands to test! 🙂

There are a bunch of different methods, here are a few:

Bump! Apparently pink hydrangeas are expensive fresh and I’m too afriad to order online, so I was thinking of spraying white hydrangeas a medium pink.

I want to know if the floral spray paint smells!!
