    I am really eager to try this. I love the "rainbow roses" I've seen online.

      @Janet Smith Thanks Janet. When I was looking at other tutorials online, I found that most of them were misleading, i.e., the do-it-yourself roses I made are not as vibrant as the professional ones sold in flower shops, yet all the tutorials showed the stock photos of the professional ones. And several youtube videos regurgitated the same instructions, and then did not even show the finished project. So keep your expectations in check. Since I didn't get the intensity in color I wanted, that's when I added the glitter too.
