How to Paint Hydrangeas
Paint hydrangeas to preserve a piece of summer.
Use binder clips to hang hydrangeas upside down in area prepped to painting.
Shake can of spray paint WELL. Direction on can say 2 minutes – I’m sure this is to evenly distribute the beautiful metallic throughout the paint.
Holding can of spray paint 8-10 inches away from flower, use constant even strokes to apply the first thin layer of paint.
Allow to dry 10 minutes.
Repeat steps 3 and 4 from various different angles until satisfied with coloration of hydrangea.
Holding can of top coat 8-10 inches away from hydrangea, lightly coat flower with sealer.
Allow to dry 10-15 minutes.
- Continue steps 7 and 8 several times from various different angles until hydrangea has been evenly sealed by top coat.
Now you have preserved a piece of summer through the power of spray paint.
