Hi Mates,

read all your experiences and got eager to try it on my flex 8.

It WAS a snow-camo flex 8.

So i bought three pckts of black rit-dye powder, acetone-containing nail polish remover and a wooden tong.

first i cleaned the faceplate in hot water, then i used some steel wool and the aceton to remove the camo and get a "matte" finish.

It was nearly all grey then...

I washed it with hot water again.

Meanwhile i brought about 8 litres of water to boil, stirred in the dye powder and turned the stove top off.

I placed the mask in the dyed water and waited for approx. half an hour.

The mask turned medium grey, but not black.

So I turned the stove back on and boiled the mask for two hours (light boiling, though). Now it is still medium grey.

I`m going to boil for additional two hours now, `til it is 11pm here. Then i am going to have the faceplate stay in the dye for the night an remove it around 7am, so it can stay in the "ink" for eight more hours.

If it is still grey then, should i try boiling it again or switch to liquid dye or krylon paint?


yours,
Napi.

in my experience it is pretty tough to get a real dark black when dying painting or platic dip might be your best options

edit: also i would try the liquid dye first tho, you may get a better result dying is all about trial and error

ah, ok.

It is still medium grey btw (like concrete...).

I think I am going to try lexane-color. Friend of mine is kinda into scale modelling, he adviced me to try it, (I don`t know if lexan/lexane is the proper english term, it is a clear polycarbonate) let`s see if it works.

I want to dye the front part (part that you breathe through) of WHITE ZN events to black. Should I just follow the normal steps on the front page with the black rit dye?

Started out as a clear frame. Used orange, liquid Rit. The mask came out even better than I expected. I thought I would end up with a darker orange, but it came out lighter and still translucent since it was clear originally. It turned out kind of a creamsicle color.

You won't get the results you're looking for. 'White Rit' is kinda like bleaching fabric. Your mask is plastic so it won't bleach out. You can only add color to plastic, not remove it. About the only way to turn a black mask white is to paint it.
