I mean, like actual acrylic PAINT... has anyone ever tried that?
Or sharpies?
Or... ?

I have never tried actually coloring or painting the flower before I resin it.  I can't imagine using acrylic to do it because it is so opaque and think that I would be afraid of the flower looking fake.  I may try sharpies or some other clearish dye or paint.

If you mean in resin in general, rather than sharpie on the flowers....you can pour a layer of clear resin, let it harden, and color it with sharpies. or stamp it. or probably paint it, although i haven't tried paint. but i have tries sharpies...
 dried flowers aren't that hard, but fresh ones i couldn't even bother with, i'm not that patient, whatever it may require, argh!

Lovely! I really like the rose in the second picture. The picture itself looks tattoo inspired, and then the background you picked for it is kind of skin tone, so it looks really awesome.

Very pretty!  I am facinated by the teal coloured teardrop in the last pic - what is inside of it?

Do you think spraying the flowers with an acrylic sealer before putting them in resin would help keep the colour?

I need to get more resin (only have 25ml tubes) and start playing - but its SOOOOO smelly! I think I still have a headrush from coating my scrabble pendants!

I know! That stuff STINKS!
