We took purple dye (A/D40 purple) and white-blue variegated hydrangea.
We then prepared two buckets: one with DipIt, the other with clear water. We took the hydrangea stem and put it into the DipIt solution. The design Master instructions say to dip for two seconds, however the longer you keep the stem in the solution the darker the color will be.
Usage Tips : Pull the leaves off the coloring
After dipping in color rinse hydrangea blossoms thoroughly in clear water. In this stage the concentrated purple color will be washed and easily dispersed around all of the blossoms. the color becomes lighter and will appear more natural.
To finish up simply dry in the box. If a deeper shade is wanted simply repeat the coloring cycle.
One bottle of DipIt 1 Qt. (.946 L.) approximately lasts for 40 hydrangea stems.
We enjoyed dyeing with DipIt from Design Master. It’s easy, you get fast results, can change color depth, and it looks natural.
