Hi all - just wondering if anyone has ever coloured the wire flower stamens and how you did it. I have some white ones and need them to be a peachy colour for a wedding cake next week. I have peach paste colour and was thinking about painting them with colour and alcohol? Would this work? Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
Thank you!

I've colored my stamens before. Both with the petal dust and with the paste/gel(mixed with alcohol) color and both worked. However I had cotton stamens, not wire ones. I have colored my wires before though, I covered the wire in a very thin white floral tape and then colored like above. Petal dust gives a pale color, and the painted gel gives a darker color.
