Dye clear gem revys?

I've heard people talk about dyeing the clear revy shells. Has anyone here ever done it or know how to do it? Thanks

I head of dying sticky grips and Flex-7's. I think the plastic has to be soft but I'm not sure.

Why would you want to dye them? All the colors are allready available.

Unless you made a tie-dye pattern.

Ha ha

my local airsmith has done it before
its not bad
but he tried it on broken halves cause the high heat meltd one and the other with low heat and it was fine ( both broken shells) and i belive he did them for the stores team too ( their hoppers)

I've never used dye before. What do I do just dump it in a bowl of dye and let it sit? Have I got to heat it up or anything?

Ok, for the people that want to dye lok soks, screen, clear dye stickies, etc. Here is what you do: Go to the supermarket, get something called RIT dye(get it in the powder form, liquid sucks!). Then you put the dye into a bowl of boiling water, drop the item that you want in, leave in for a short time if you want a light shade, or longer for a darker shade(also, monitor the item so the boiling water doesn't melt the goods). Hope this helps some people out.

Here's how to dye delrin i assume it's very simular because it's the same dye just try lower temperature's


You want to use Rite Dye in a bottle. Use about 1/3 of the bottle into
water in a a pot. Bring it to a boil, and turn it down to a smal
l boil. Now put the Delrin into the pot. Keep it in there from only about 30
seconds, then wash it in COLD water. Repeat until you get the color you want.
