This should be stickied when he can spell LIQUID correctly.

Other than that, its good and to the point, even though there is already another "how to dye" thread.

When you are dying a mask black there are other colors of dye to add to the black dye to neutralize the original color of the mask. I know if you are dye red to black you need to add a half a package or dark green rit dye to every whole package of black that you use. Their is a chart on their site but the site seems to be down right now. I will see if I can get it later.

Also. Red profilers do not dye black. I let them sit in the dye over night and they still only got a very dark brownish purple. I don't know if it is the rubber in the profilers or what but it doesn't work with them.

One more thing. The ideal temperature to heat the dye is 140 degrees.

In Christ.

Edit: Here is some useful info.

If color is: It can be dyed.

Yellow (light): Scarlet, Tangerine, Cocoa Brown, Dark Brown, Dark Green, Wine, or Black

Peach, Light Orange, Light Pink: Scarlet, Fuchsia, Royal Blue, Cocoa Brown, Tangerine, Wine, Dark Green, Navy, Blue, or Black

Orchid or Lavender: Purple, Wine, Dark Brown, Navy Blue, or Black

Bright Red: Wine or Black*

Purple: Black

Blue or Turquoise (light): Royal Blue, Aquamarine, Kelly Green, Dark Green, Dark Brown, Wine, Navy Blue, or Black

Aqua (medium or dark): Dark Green, Navy Blue, or Black

Blue (medium): Denim Blue, Navy Blue, or Black

Green (light): Royal Blue, Aquamarine, Kelly Green, Dark Green, Dark Brown, Wine, Navy Blue, or Black

Chartreuse (light): Aquamarine, Dark Green, Dark Brown, Wine, or Black

Chartreuse (dark): Dark Green or Black*

Green (dark): Black*

Gold (light): Dark Brown, Dark Green, Cocoa Brown, or Black

Gold (medium or dark): Wine, Purple, Dark Green, Cocoa Brown, Dark Brown, Navy Blue, Denim Blue, or Black

Grey (medium or deep): Dark Green, Dark Brown, Navy Blue, or Black

Tan or Beige (medium): Dark Green, Cocoa Brown, Wine, Dark Brown, or Black

*When Dyeing Black Over Original Color: Add the Following to Black Dye Bath:

if the mask is red dying it green or blue would trun like a blackish color.

yes you can make a mask with desigsn on it, with letters get the little letter stickers but make sure to put them on and them blow dry them to make it stick while in the dye. and you can also do a hot glue technique where you apply hot glue in all directions then dye it and once its dry is down peel off the hot glue.

ex. if you have red mask and hot glue it then dye it black youll have red lines and black solid
