Splatter is usually done with paint. It would be difficult to mask off your goggles to get that effect with dye.

I know that that was a previous pattern but I mean how do you get the different color splatter? Do you just dye it a color the splatter hot glue on it and dye over?

yes but if you do that start with the lightest color you have and work your way to the darkest

I know people have mentioned dyeing white revo bottoms but has anybody ever actually done it? Just checking to see if they shrink like the ize bottoms.

If you look far enough back you can see that people have done it! I believe they would shrink a little bit, but I can't confirm that for 100%

White.

I want to do a batman theme. Dye the white: yellow, and leave the black: black. A yellow empire strap, and possibly some lense wraps with custom batman logos gucci patterned.

Sounds like quite the project. You can try dying them yellow, but there's no guarantees. When I died my miami rage flex frame it had a clear coat on it and it turned out really nice. Give it a try!

Yeah. I have two questions that may have been answered, but asking them anyways.

1. With yellow being a lighter color is there a chance that it will have a bleaching effect on the black?
2. What is the best way to remove the foam without destroying it?

I may do a "hey this is my first time/beginner video"

If it comes out the way I want i will be posting a ton of pics.

1 - No chance. Plastic doesn't 'bleach' like fabrics.

i would also try testing the color before dipping your goggles to make sure you have the desired effect. remember its easier to go from light to dark so if they are to light you can make them darker but if they come out to dark then your stuck with them.

but also yellow should be a simple color to work with

Hmm this is a good point. I got liquid rit yellow. Is the liquid okay? I know people said they like the powder better, but they didn't have powder.

personally i have never used the liquid. so couldnt tell you what exactly the difference is. i know it isnt going to hurt your goggle's though. it may be possible the powder is a more condensed form of dye so you get a better color then with the liquid.

Are you all removing the foam before hand or does it wash out pretty easily afterwards on the foam parts? Just curious, going to tinker with some ideas.

Anyone adding salt or vinegar to the cooling process to help with the color?

i would suggest removing the foam (carefully of course) before dying even when you rinse the foam its still in there a bit. and when you sweat you will get a colored ring around your face as for adding salt or vinegar iv never added any and all of my stuff turns out pretty nice so i guess you could try it and let us know how it turns out
