If you go to Hawaii, you will notice that these sweet smelling Plumerias are everywhere. These flowers are used to create beautiful leis. The variety of colors are a beauty to behold... red, pink, white, yellow, and yes, even a variety known as rainbow. I have used Susan's Garden Plumeria dies to create rainbow plumeria. You can watch a step by step video by Susan Tierney-Cockburn on how to create the Plumeria at this link.
The rainbow plumeria are a blend of yellow and pink. This color combination is really easy to duplicate on each petal by using the Susan's Garden Pan Pastels. I used the PanPastelSofft Knife with a point to first apply the bright pink then went over it with with yellow. I love how the Pan Pastels blend together so well. In the pictures I saw of the rainbow plumeria, it had a little black at the base of the petals, so I used a Copic fine black marker to add a few thin black lines, then went back over it with the yellow Pan Pastel. One of the things I want to point out is that when you add the petals to the calyx (base), be sure to add them next to each other. If you have read my tutorials on how to assemble a rose, I tell you to first add petals to every other point on the base, going back and adding the other petals over the first ones. With the Plumeria, they are to overlap the petal next to them as you glue them around the calyx.
Along with Susan's Video and this close up picture, I'm sure you will be able to create beautiful Plumeria in a variety of colors.
