the darker the color the harder it is to dye for example dying black to almost any color is impossible. dying white or clear is your best bet the lighter the color the easier it is. so basicly what im trying to say is the color you want the mask to be needs to be darker then what it already is. and olive is already a pretty dark color so i doubt you could do anything other then black...maybe a brown?

Imo, it would be difficult to get burgundy from a olive mask. I believe red + green = black'ish. You could pick up a cheap water color set and do a few tests to see what combos you can come up with. Just apply the water color to the mask in a non-visible area and see what you get.

Also, Rit has a color chart on their website to help create various combos, BUT it is for fabrics which do not act the same as plastics.

Please post up your results.

Great idea with the water colors! But I'm probably not going to attempt dying the mask. I dont really want to risk ending up with a black mask haha.

Well, you're starting with a blank slate, from there it's a matter of temperature, concentration, and time.

Is there a way to mask off a mask and only dye parts of it? I have green and tan grills, but I just want to dye the tan part

Hey nation, random question: is it possible to dye a miami rage frame, while still keeping the scarface pattern? Or will the pattern be ruined? I have one lying around, and I thought it might look cool if I tried dying it.

Imo, it won't dye very well. The pattern is a dipped coating on the outside of the frame surface. However, if you're not that emotionally connected to the frames just give it a shot. The patterns visibility would depend on your color choice and the length of time it stays in the bath. Post here with your results so we all benefit.

Good luck!

Ok, lads I've finished the dying process and now I am just waiting for the pieces to dry. I'll leave you in suspense until I get the mask together

Some helpful info you could include. What color dye did you use? Liquid or powder? How long did it stay in? What temp of the dye? etc.


But it looks nice.

Thanks! Ok, well I'll do my best to sum up the "grunt work" (forgive me this was a first time attempt at dying a mask). So here we go:

step 1:
I pulled my mask frames from the bottoms, and removed my lens and strap. I very carefully pulled off the foam with a "pinching motion."

Step 2:
I purchased RIT powder dye (denim blue) from my local Michaels Craft store for $3.99, and cheap nail-polish remover from the drugstore for $1.99.

step 3:
I boiled 2 large pots of water on the stove until it was nice and steamy (estimated amount of water would be around 2-3 gallons)

step 4:
While the water was doing its thing, I poured out the entire container of my el cheapo nail polish remover (35mL worth) and rubbed the mask (while wearing gloves) with a hard-bristled toothbrush for approximately 10 minutes (not sure if this step actually did much)

step 5:
The water came to a boil, so I poured it into a 5 gallon plastic container (previously used to store junk in). I then poured the rit mix (just one box) into the boiling water and stirred it for 5 minutes.

step 6:
I placed the goggle frames into the mix and every 5 minutes I would use a plastic pair of tongs to examine the frame's progress. After 20 minutes, I was satisfied with how the frames looked, and pulled them out (while wearing yellow cleaning gloves).

step 7:
I placed the goggles on an old towel and sprayed them off with the hose (with luke warm water). Then I towel dried them and re-assembled them!

There you have it folks, anyone can do this. Just follow the steps, be patient, and have a certain knowledge of how colours interact with each other! Try it out

also, the frames look much darker (a cross b/n a navy and a deep purple), but when in sunlight they reflect the sunlight quite nicely! This was totally a pleasant surprise. I felt like I should mention this because, although I did use a blue dye colour, the colour came out more "purpley." So, I guess it's just a word of warning that sometimes the dye you use may produce unpredictable results. All part of the experience, I guess!

How do you get the splatter effect? I have slow internet here over seas so I don't feel like waiting for all the pages to load in case someone already asked

That was a pattern already on the mask that he dyed over. Took very nice too, gratz. Otherwise, use the hotglue method and just shake the gun over the frames to get it going all different directions, or, put a pattern on, etc.
