Have you been wanting to try PanPastel colors on your DIY flowers? I use this art medium to make my paper flowers look more realistic. In our latest video, Flower-Making Techniques with PanPastel, I show you how to color paper flowers using PanPastel pigments.
Paint Your Flowers with PanPastel Colors
We use our PanPastel colors on various types of crepe paper, frosted paper, text weight paper, and so on. We’ve even used them on our felt flowers! For example, we used PanPastel colors to paint our felt protea flower. And more recently, we used them to create this beautiful ombré effect on our DIY oak branches.
To help you get the most out of your PanPastels, we created this video tutorial full of tips and techniques. When you watch the video, you’ll see how I blend and mix my PanPastel colors to enhance my paper flowers. If you have any questions about how to color paper flowers with PanPastel, just comment below!

hellooooo there. Loving learning about the different techniques and I’ve made a few flowers I’m pretty stoked with 🙂 one thing that I haven’t seen yet – only heard you talk about… Spraying with fixative for when you know you’ll be rubbing up against your flowers. How is the easiest way to spray fixative… does it affect the way the petals curl at all? How ‘wet’ do you need to get the paper…. Halp!! I’m wanting to make a wedding bouquet with dark colours, so wanting to save the smudge 🙂
Yes, we recommend using the Krylon to set your colors. You do not want to get your paper wet with the spray but lightly mist the paper. This will also ensure your pastel does not change color with the spray. Once dry, give it a test rub with your fingers and at that point you can add a second layer if need be. Happy crafting!!

We love Copic brand markers that you can find on Amazon or https://www.dickblick.com/!
