Magnolia flowers

The huge soft petals of the magnolia grandiflora - the leaves I have been stitching on of late - are falling. They have long been a tactile joy with their soft velvety feel - even though they turn brown once the fall. I am wondering if I could do something artistic with them. Maybe paint on them or dip them in powertex and make a bowl. Next week I won't be working full time so I might be able to play around with them a bit
