Paper flowers

I saw a video featuring Livia Cetti showing how to dip tissue paper in bleach to create subtly coloured paper flowers.  I ran out, bought the book, bought tissue paper and started dipping.  Imagine how disappointed I was when it turned out that my tissue paper was colour-fast and wouldn't change colour.

Still, I had all that paper, so I made some flowers.


  1. I like your bright, unbleached flowers. Interesting that the technique doesn't work on all paper, it must've been a disappointment.

    1. Thank you Jane, I like the bright colours too, but am still itching to try the bleach.
