How To Spray Paint Fresh Flowers
Since I can't get blue roses for my wedding, I looked into dying them blue, which can be done, but with limited success and too much labor and time. Instead, I stumbled upon this informational tutorial about getting the job done but with floral spray paint. Here are five methods for spraying fresh flowers for your wedding or any other use.

Technique 1: Misting
Hold the can 15" - 18" away from the flower when spraying. Move the flowers, not the can. Let it dry before adding coats. Tip here is to layer the color.
Technique 2: Air Brushing
Hold the can 20" away from the flower when spraying. Move the flowers, not the can. Here, you're just highlighting. Do not apply full coverage.
Technique 3: Toning
Hold the can 15" - 18" away from the flower when spraying. Hit just the edges of the petals to tone the flower. Don't completely cover the blossom.
Technique 4: Back Spray
Hold the can 15" - 18" away from the flower when spraying. Flat and wide single petal flowers are best for this. Mist the flowers ONLY from the back to develop deeper intensity.
Technique 5: Tipping
Hold the can 15" - 18" away from the flower when spraying. This works best for roses and carnations. Cup the flowers in your hand so just the tips are bunched together and exposed. After spraying, you will notice that just the tips are marked with color.
If you've ever tried to dye your flowers and have found quick solid success, I would love to hear from you. My wedding theme is Tiffany Blue and as the new year gets closer to my wedding day, I still haven't figured out the flowers. HELP!! <3 Thank you!

Hi @GraceT I have not considered paper roses, But the color on the flowers doesn't negatively affect the flowers suposedly, as long as it's used correctly. So, you should get normal life out of them. But since this is a wedding, I only need the flowers to look fresh and amazing for the wedding. After that, I don't really care. But for normal everyday flowers around the house, i would imagine it would be normal 7-14 days depending on daily care and water changing.
thats really awesome!dying roses will not quicken its fade then that would be a great idea for an amazing wedding!
I want tiffany blue roses for my wedding, so this is probably what I am going to do. @GraceT
I've heard of splitting the bottom of the stem in four and putting each end in a different jar of colored water for a few hours.
I did too @VictoriaJuvinal but the look isn't as consistent as spraying them. But you're right, that is a great idea.
