Design Master Spray tips
Millennial brides are seeking more romantic touches to their wedding festivities than ever before. Along with seemingly casual clutches of just-picked blossoms and foliage in a textural explosion, ribbon... miles and miles of ribbon... are the fashion of today's bridal bouquets! Mind you, not just an accent to bind the bouquet but an abundance of ribbon streamers flowing to the ground, posed to waft in a gentle breeze or accentuate her every move. Visualizing the romance?

Ranking tops on the ribbon lists are hand dyed silks with rich colors blended in a watercolor effect. GORGEOUS! Simply gorgeous.

I know you creative types. You're starting to ponder, 'how can I hand dye ribbons?'. Am I right?
A friend of ours demonstrates (in the video below) how she transforms stock ribbon into artisan watercolor ribbons for her clients using Design Master color sprays... and our special design tool. The easy technique works on various fabrics including silk, wool, acetate, polyester or cotton and on fabric items besides ribbons! Experiment in monochromatic or get your analogous on for a little livelier color combination. Let your color artist shine! Personalize the needed color yourself then charge for premium ribbon... a creative color solution for your design business.
