Basically, a wire loop is formed with a substantial twist at the bottom and leaving at least a 3inch tail. This can be bent to the desired shape. This is is then dipped into a can of coloured liquid, pulled out and left to dry for 10-15 mins. It is best for making 3 dimensional items, such as flowers - dipping the separate petals and wiring them together. It is an acetone based liquid which needs to be thinned with thinners if it gets too thick, which means only using in a well ventilated space, not near any open flames and protect work tops and clothing.

Theo loved the dipping, but relied on his grandad, who is an expert at manipulating wire having been a dental technician, for help with doing the wirework involved. I also helped him wrap green florist tape around the stem. All you need for making the flowers were in this good value set, and has kept Theo quiet and occupied for hours - an added bonus!
