Everything I read about doing colorflow says to use a parchment bags only. I don't have access to these. My Michael's here doesn't carry them. My question is can I use the disposable plastic bags with a decorating tip?

Yes you can, everything needs to be grease free though. The bowl you mix it in,your tips, everything or it can break down the colorflow. I can't believe your Michaels doesn't carry parchment triangles. You may find them at walmart.

You can make your own parchment triangles with parchment paper, but the disposable bags will work too.

I have been wondering does anyone know of any tutorials or anything for colour flow? I really want to try it but don't really know...well bluntly....what I'm doing!
Thanks

I'd love to find a tutorial too but haven't been able to find one. Another question I have is on the picture I have attached of the baby face I want to do the color flow with when it comes to the eyes and mouth and pink cheeks....do I color in the whole face first and then after it dries put on the features or do I do the features first and then flood the face around them? If that makes any sense! Hopefully someone can help me with this.

I would flow in the face then pipe the details over it once it dries. Then use a petal dust for the cheeks If you look on the wilton website, then have a very in depth tutorial on how to do colorflow.
