Preserving the Colors of Crepe Paper

crepe paper tips Nov 01, 2022

You put hours of work into creating a paper flower, only to have the color start to fade after a short while.

Unfortunately, this is a situation that paper florists are very familiar with, especially with certain colors that are quite essential to creating lifelike plants. (I’m looking at you, green.)

So, how do you preserve the color of your crepe paper? Is there anything you can do to stop paper flowers from fading?

The answer is yes. I have one sure way to keep that color completely, but it might not be a medium that you prefer. In that case, there are things you can do to prevent and slow fading.

Completely Preserve Color with Acrylic

In my eight year experience as a paper artist, the only fail-safe way to maintain the color of the crepe is to paint it with acrylic. The plastic coat definitely perseveres the paper.

Especially with those certain shades of green crepe that like to quickly turn strange colors, acrylic paint is a great option. I’ve shared a list of the...

How do you choose between the hundreds of common foliages out there when you’re making a paper flower arrangement? How many do you need? Which paper should you make them out of? 

As a paper florist, you may struggle with these issues, and you’re not alone! These questions came up in our Paper Talk Facebook group recently. It’s not surprising. Foliages don’t get a lot of time in the spotlight, but they’re just as important as your blooms. They create the foundation for your piece. If something is off with your greenery, people will notice, even if they can’t put their finger on what exactly is wrong. 

So let’s talk about foliage and how you can improve your arrangements by making smart choices with...

Angel Wing Begonia Tutorial

 

Angel Wing Begonia Tutorial 

by Quynh Nguyen of The Posey Box

There’s something adorable about the spotted leaves of an Angel Wing Begonia, which I set out to capture in my latest tutorial. 

You can adapt these techniques to make your plant as unique as you are. Give the leaves a more jagged edge, or create a redder variety. The possibilities are endless!   

But first, let’s talk about glue and paint.

I used Aleene’s Clear Tacky Glue for this tutorial, and I highly recommend it. It is so much tackier and dries super fast. I also love that it doesn’t yellow over time, which is key for long-living flowers like ours. Remember to close the cap between uses—it’s easy to forget when you’re in the middle of a project! 

The Tulip Dimensional Paint for the dots is so easy to use, and it comes in a variety of colors that you can experiment and play with. Consider mixing the colors together to get a darker or...
