the offical dying your mask thread!

ive seen a lot of you guys asking how to dye a mask, so im gonna try to help you out. to start off you must have:

- mask or mask items (white or any color lighter then the dye)
- acetone or nail polish remover (for maks with clear coats on the them like the flex 8)
- toothbrush
- powder or liguid rite dye (available at walmart, cvs, walgreens etc.)
- big pot (to boil water)
- disposable tin, bucket plastic container (must be big)
- rubber gloves
- newspaper
- tongs
- paper towlels


to start gather all your supplies. put on your rubber gloves and start taking the clear coat off using acetone and a toothbrush, poor the acetone on the mask and scrub until the clear coat is off. then, open the rit dye and read the diections supplied, put water in pot, then once water is bolied pour into the tin, bucket, or whatever you got. then pour the the rit dye in the bolied water (more dye = darker turnout). carefuly put the item your dying in the solution. about every 2 minutes keep checking on the color of the item, if you want a darker color leave it in there longer or visa versa.

once you are happy with your turnout you can take the item out of the solution with your tongs and let it dry on paper towels. once the item is dry wash of excess liquid and your ready to roll with your new custom dyed mask!

if you guys have any questions fell free to pm me, i will get some pics up soon with the process.
just dont ask stupid questions here ill give you an example.. i got a pm saying exactly this. "can i dye a jt proflex frame?" yah id consider that a stupid question.



FINAL PRODUCT.

Yes. I prefer the powder because i feel it is harder to wash the liquid dye out of the goggle foam than it is to wash the powder dye.

I'm guessing this wont work with say flex 8's... since I would want to dye just the vents. Or would it work with a gray flex 8 since everything else is black and you said it doesn't work on black.
