Can I Re-color Pressed Flower?

Posted by ElviraS none (My Page) on

So I have this school project to make something using pressed flower. I chose frangipani, and I dried it for 5 days with the-heavy-book technique, but somehow it turned to brown. Is there any way to re-color it? I've tried to paint it with poster paint, but it looks unnatural.
Or is there any way to press flower or leaf that just takes a day or less? I'm really running out of time, and I need your advice.
Thank you!

There is a special dye made specifically for pressed flowers that looks very natural. It doesn't cover, it only colors, so you can still see the details like shading differences and veining.

The link doesn't work for me. Can you give the web address?
