How do you dye succulents?
To color succulents, you have to change the environment they are growing in, to put “stress” on them. Things such as less or more water, less or more sunlight, and hotter or colder temperatures can change their color. But if you are looking for more funky colors, you can also use food coloring.
Water based and oil based paint pens usually show up nicely against a black surface. I love the POSCA paint pens! You can get these on Amazon in a variety of different colors. They are very opaque and will show up bright on the canvas.
Succulents are drought-tolerant plants that store water in stems and leaves. Plants use leaves and stems to make food from sunlight (photosynthesize) and breathe (transpire). Completely coating the leaves with paint prevents this and will probably kill the plants or, at least, seriously injure them.
Acrylic paints are known for their vibrant colors and for the fact that they are easy to use. So, will acrylic paint kill plants? The answer is no, acrylic paint has a low toxicity level, and is safe to use around plants since it is generally water based.
Easy Succulent Care
Full sun or very bright light, so a place them close to a bright window. A thorough watering when their soil is dry to the touch (sometimes it dries out fairly quickly, notably in the summer, but at other times, only after several weeks).
