Rainbow Roses on Redbubble

I do love me a good bit of alliteration. But this particular alliteration announces the latest addition to my Redbubble shop:

A small zipper pouch with vibrantly colored rainbow roses printed on it.

I was given a lovely bouquet of rainbow-petalled roses for my birthday and took pictures of them with my DSLR camera. After turning the photo into my phone background and passing it on to my mom as well (and you can get it along with other exclusives over at my Ko-Fi page for just a $1 tip), I decided to see how well it would fit on Redbubble products.

I think you can tell what my conclusion was. So now it is available on these products and more. Even masks!

A clock with black hands printed with rainbow petalled roses on the face.

Ok, I know I just said masks and showed a picture of a clock, but I really like how it looks on this clock.

Have you ever seen rainbow flowers before? I can’t wrap my brain around how they did it, but I’m going to try to preserve one of the dried ones in resin. If that doesn’t work, at least I have these photos.

I Rainbowed Bread

Sunday I decided to make bread. I made this decision around 1pm, went to the store, then came home and laid down until around 6pm. Which left me finishing the bread about 10:30pm. Because I’m good at planning like that. Oh well.

Anyway, I used this white sandwich bread recipe from Julia Child which created two loaves of bread. I only rainbowed the one because getting this:

took about thirty minutes and was only one loaf. Next time I will split the whole thing into seven and dye it before splitting for the two loaves.

Another thing I learned doing this is that, while the glass storage container is roughly the same size as the bread tin and is oven safe, it doesn’t exactly let go of the bread very easily. Even with cooking spray. So I’ll probably be better off just getting a second bread tin like I contemplated at the grocery store.

Overall, the rainbowing process was really simple. After the first rise, I added food coloring to the dough by making a little dimple in the ball and dropping the food coloring in before kneading it with my fingers. It does get a little messy, so I would lay down a cutting board or maybe even parchment paper, and possibly consider gloves. The food coloring will wash off, but it will take a few washings. I’m just saying, if you make this bread in the middle of the day and are planning to go places afterward, probably best to protect your hands.
