I had so much fun doing all the shots of the happy rainbow rose so there is also a photomanipulation with it. The rose was dyed with different colors, it's not digitally manipulated.
How do Happy Roses get their special colors?
White flowers are put in water with natural substances. The stem absorbes this water in a natural way. This changes the color of the flower. Unique selling point is that the inventor succeeded to let every petal get it's own color! He even succeeded to make a rainbow of colors in just one flower! Taken from Happy Colors
I've just gone through and faved your ENTIRE Magical Roses folder, but this is really gorgeous too! The different images and colors you used for this shot give it a great fairy-tale feel; it's easy to see you're really talented at this. Beautiful beautiful work! I'll be keeping an eye on your work from here on out!
My goodness! So beautiful! I learned about that through and experiment of blue food dye and a celery stalk in some water. It was cool seeing the strings turn color. I just wonder how people were able to have so much color variation in each petal without them clashing. I must try this for my self! And awesome shot my dear. Totally adding this.
The end of the stem must be cut in four parts and each of them dyed in another color. I think it is a quite difficult technique but the results are striking. Thanks so much for the nice comment and the fav!
