Rose Bead Redux
It looks like azalea blooms also make "rose" beads with the same recipe - I've been cooking them for a week, and I formed the beads this evening, and they're drying on mandrels in my craft room. I used the same process that I used for the rose beads, so (crosses fingers) here's hoping!
Next year - forsythia, dogwood, and magnolia blossoms. If I can, tulips and daffodils as well, if I can get enough.
Whatever the beads do, sink or swim, I'll post the results on my website as a comparison / contrast and post the link once they're there.
It also produced an azalea / iron water ink, and I'll be using that in the next few days in calligraphy. My rose water / iron ink is chilling in the fridge from last year.
