how do you keep the darker tones from fading? i'm doing deep purple roses for a wedding and want to keep them "fresh" but want to start making them as the wedding is in a couple of weeks ( and i don't have too many to make either). thanks in advance icon_smile.gif

keep them out of light and they'll be fine. I put mine in a box with a lid

I made eggplant colored roses last week and kept them in a darkened room so as not to fade.

I'm wondering why mines hasn't faded. I made black flowers about a month ago and they have been sitting on my counter and still as black as I first made it.

I think it's the red that fades out, so anything with red in it - purple, pink, fuchsia, burgundy - will tend to fade. Perhaps there's not so much red color in black?
