I need to tea dye some white flowers.
Naomie Moore aka baileyanddaisey, Castaic CA on Apr 11, 2018Regardless of what method you choose, do a test batch first. You do not want to go through the process and end up with "dirty" looking roses! If these are inexpensive dollar store variety synthetic "silk" I am not sure how well this would work, but certainly worth a try.https://www.weddingwire.com/wedding-forums/can-you-tea-stain-silk-flowers/a92f479b7954dfdc.htmlhttp://www.instructables.com/id/Tea-dying/https://m.wikihow.com/Dye-Silk-FlowersTry coffee or coke too!Helpful Reply
Elizabeth Davis on Apr 11, 2018How about chamomile tea? It’s a light color.Helpful Reply
Cindy on Apr 11, 2018I'm not sure tea will produce cream colored flowers. I think they will turn out light brown. Try spray painting white silk flowers. You might have more control over the final color. Best wishes.Helpful Reply
Dfm on Apr 11, 2018most dyes “ take “ better if the object to be dyed is Cotten. I’d hit them with a floral spray paint.Helpful Reply
Dfm on Apr 11, 2018if you use tea to color them, you will need an agent to permanently set the color. I’d use red zinger tea and put a blush of color on them. I believe it’s a 50/50 mix of water and vinager,,,To set the dye. There is a list out on the net about making natural dyes and their mordants ahem the fixers.Helpful Reply
