Floral Dyes & Pigments are widely used in the coloration of live and dried flowers such as carnations, potpourri, and raffia. Industrial grade specialty dyes are typically used and in some cases FD&C dyes. We also offer a unique aqueous Ready-To-Spray(RTS) coating system consisting of a wide shade range including copper, gold, bronze, and silver metallic-like decorative colors.

Actual pigment and dye samples must be evaluated in a laboratory on medium to be colored in production for accurate shade and physical property results. Shades shown on print material and computer monitors are for general reference only as they are inherently inaccurate due to calibration variations and technical limitations of monitors and printers.
