Even with all the colors that crepe paper comes in, ever wish you could add some depth or variation to bring life to your crepe paper flowers? Crepe paper can run, turn mushy or lose its crepe when wet, so painting with watercolors or acrylics is a challenge. I have found a way to create vibrant, variegated crepe paper without these problems -- and I will share this fantastic paper with you! My painted paper retains its crepe, stretch and malleability.
This listing is for a 4" x 90" (10 cm X 2.2 m) strip of pink-painted Dennecrepe "white" crepe paper.
Dennecrepe is made in the USA on the original machines from Dennison Corp. It has a tight, fine "crêped" texture, and is really the best for making ethereal, luminous flowers.
Make blushing roses, pink-kissed phalaenopsis, or rosy-edged dogwood. The 4" width gives you options to choose more pink or white in your petals to get the effect you want. Cut your petals for pink at the bottom (as you see in the roses above) or the top to create unique variations.
Note that this paper is hand-painted, so some variation is expected. This can add to the natural effect!
