For a dance recital, the dancers' flowers could change in unison, from red to yellow and back to red again. Also, as some of the dancers turn and the flowers are momentarily out of view, their flowers could change, so that when the dancer faces forward again, the flower is a different color.
This is an extremely easy trick for the opening number of Pippin! Repeating the color change would make this effect last as long as necessary.
Show the red flower to the audience and pretend to deeply inhale its lovely fragrance. Exhale on the flower, and make it change to yellow.
How To Care For Feather Flowers:
Feather flowers like these are made from REAL turkey feathers, dyed and tied into flower shapes.
With a bit of care, these feather flowers will easily last for many years of use.
- Store your feather flowers OPEN.
In other words, don't wrap them up and store them. Prop them up in a vase or other container, and drape a light cloth over them to keep the dust off.
- DO NOT wash your feather flowers.
You can lightly shake them, or use canned air or a hair dryer (on the "COOL" setting) to remove dust.
- Fluff them with a cool hair dryer. You can also use a hair dryer on "COOL" to fluff up the flowers.
