DIY: Rainbow Rose

Today was a really happy day for me!! :)
First of all, I passed my FTT! Yay! :D
One step closer to my driver's license finally~~

Then I baked brownies at home and had it with vanilla ice cream for dessert with my family!
Super shiok!!! b;

Will post an updated brownie recipe soon! :)

And I was also really excited because I tried to make rainbow roses again and they looked slightly better than my previous attempt!!! :D
It's actually made by splitting the stem of a white/ cream coloured rose into a few parts and then dipping each of them into a mixture of food colouring and water.
Then the xylem (I suddenly feel so intellectual saying this word. xylem... lol!) will transport the coloured water into the petals and thus creating the rainbow effect!

I used Red, Blue, Yellow and Purple colouring for mine.
I'm not sure why my red colour hasn't shown up yet, but this is how it looks like only after 7 hours~
The tutorial I followed asks for 24 - 48 hours.
So the colours should look a lot more vibrant by tomorrow! :D
Can't wait!!!

After 24 hours!!! :D


And here's the video tutorial for Rainbow Roses on YouTube!
Do try it cause it's super exciting and it doesn't cost much!!!
Like a fun primary school science project, and it looks friggin amazing if you do succeed!

This is a time lapse video of a professionally coloured rainbow rose!
A home-made one won't be able to compare as well to a commercially made one, but hey, it's the thought that counts!!!
Since Mothers' Day is around the corner, you can actually try DIYing this for your mum! ^~^
If you were to order it, it's going to cost you about $10 per rose, whereas a plain white/ cream coloured one is only $1 to $2!

Some more gorgeous pictures of rainbow roses!

I know right!!!!!!

Good luck trying!

Thank you for reading, love you all!
