How do you change shredded coconut to a different color? I need green coconut for grass.
Put the coconut in a plastic bag, gently add drops of food colouring and just shake it all together. Keep adding drops of colouring until you get the shade you need. HTH
Just my two cents, liquid color might work better than gel color in this case.
Easier to spread.
I use liquid colors for this, as it seems easier for the color to blend evenly. Have fun with your project!
I've used color pastes for these myself. I just squish the bag around until all of the coconut is colored. I don't mind the shades not being exact, addes to it in my opinion.
you can use paste, I've even used airbrush coloring for it too...but generally the regular .89 a box liquid food coloring in the grocery store works best. Powdered coloring is ok, but kinda gives the coconut a dull finish, which works well for hay!
Thank you all!
