You love it, or you hate it, but dyed flowers are here to stay! They offer such a plethora of design options, they simply cannot be ignored by floral designers. But there are a lot of different “look and feels” if you take a closer look at the dyed products in the Holex webshop range. In this blog post, we want to introduce you to the stunning dyed Carnations that we offer!
Carnation Dyed Brownies
Carnations dyed Brownies are a feast for the eye. Take a look at the stunning pattern the brown-colored veins create on each delicate petal. Looks gorgeous in combination with Eustoma (Lisianthus) Rosanne Deep Brown.
Carnation Dyed Latte
The “milky” variety of Brownies is Latte: this Carnation has a more cream-colored base and the veins are colored lighter brown. Fits amazingly with Ilex Golden Verboom, but also with cream-colored or brown-colored flowers.
Carnation Dyed Vintage
How could someone not love this Carnation variety? The light pink base and hot pink and brown-colored ruffled edges of Carnation Dyed Vintage is simply breathtaking! This variety matches perfectly with Eustoma (Lisianthus) Alissa Dyed Brownies and bleached products!
How do Carnations Get Dyed?
There are multiple ways to dye flowers. In general, there are three options: to dip-dye them, to airbrush them, or to absorb-dye them. Dyed Carnations are dyed by absorption. This means that paint is put in water, and the ends of the stems of the Carnations are cut (so they can absorb in the best way). Then the stems are put in the water for a number of hours. The water with the paint travels through the stems to the blooms and the paint is distributed through the veins of the petals. Don’t you agree that the outcome looks amazing!
