my bottoms

I used the liquid dye about half a bottle to 2 gallons of water. boil the water and then add rit dye, stir, and then added the bottoms, leave the pot on the stove boiling, w the bottoms inside for about an hour or longer, just keep checking every 15 minutes or so, I used tangerine RIT as my color. longer they stay in the darker they get. the plastic on the bottoms is alil harder to dye. the darkest it will get is like a coral orange. you might have to mix color combos to get a darker color orange, hope this helps! oh yeah and what helps too to get the dye out of the foam is to stick your frames in the washing machine on delicate using hot water, cleans um real good.




Frames took only minutes to dye (literally)

Doesn't make it hard, it's just dye. Does color it though but since its grey anyway it just gets darker with a tint of whatever color you use.

I am about to dye my frames right now. Do I want to just pour in the whole package of RIT into the water, or just a little bit?
Also, do I need to clean them or something? Will it be ok if I just put the frame straight into the water without cleaning? It is a NIB clear frame if that means anything.

Just finished dying my frames. I think they turned out really well. Gotta love the old school splash look. Opinions? (I know my camera skills are a bit lacking)

I used black dye so it didn't really affect the look of the foam. I've seen some where other colors tend to shade the foam slightly. It's much easier to rinse out powdered dye as opposed to liquid so that helps a bit too.

I started with a red frame and just put down some hot glue in the pattern I wanted. I'm surprised but it actually peeled off pretty easily after the dye bath.

i got a cheap mask and i kind of wanted to try and go for a rasta thing. i was thinking about dyeing 1/3 red on one side then the other 2/3 yellow. and then opposite the red side trying to get green leaving yellow in the middle. A) will it work dying one part of the mask twice? and B) after the yellow dries, should i use a blue dye to mix with yellow to make green, or a darker green so the yellow lightens it?

thanks
