How to dry and paint allium flowers
Various forms of allium can be dried and painted for year-round use. I used mine in planters and containers in the winter, but you could dry them and use them anytime. Be sure to spray in a well ventilated area and wear old clothes. I found the pained drifted quite a bit. Look for allium that are larger and sturdier like Globemaster, Gigantium, Mount Everest and Schubertii. These types have thicker stalks and large heads, great for painting.
