took me like under an hour. it took window tint, scissors, razor, plastic card thing to smooth out, some soap and water, and patience. it was fairly easy but i didnt take my time so it came out crappy. oh and it is alittle darker than a normal sunglasses to look through. it looks reflective on the inside because of the flash of camera

nice job for under a hr.. but yeah.. it would come out nice if u took the time..

Edit**
Also i forgot to mention, its nice to put tint on event lens because they are single layer lens. Meaning u can apply the tint on the inside of the lens, making it last a bit long...

Would you happen to have any extra tint laying around?

I am starting my I3 project this tuesday when it arrives (meaning soft ears, dye treatment with a "tattoo") and would like to tint the clear lense. So I figured to ask if you had any you'd like to depart with.
But I also needed to subscribe to post results.

I say you make more time for this hobbie, and get into a small business with it.
Have people send there mask's for a small fee, and do some artistic design

yeah i thought about that for a bit.. and i wouldnt mind takin special orders.. here and there.. but theres only a few types of lens that you can apply the tint too.. events, flex, maybe profilers.. the mask lens that are curved, like dye, grillz, profilers are much harder to do.. you do a full tint due to the tint not being about to bend if u know what i mean.. so it makes it limited.. the next time i do a tint, im going to take step by step pics.. will help with what im trying to explain.. i understand some people have hard time makin a picture with what im trying to say.. im a picture kind of guy, so its easier for me to see what people r trying to explain then reading..

yep.. most tint has a adhesive side.. which isnt shouldnt damage your lens. some people think the adhesive would.. but iv dont the research and found that most would. the more expensive tint, the stuff that comes with a spray on adhesive usually has alcohol, which is a big no no with the lens. not recommended.

but read the step by step in applying the tint to the lens.. it must be wet, or it wont go on like you want it too..

whats a good ratio for the soap/water solution? I picked up a 20ft roll of chrome/black fade tint and i have been experimenting a bit. With no liquid at all there were still some bubbles i couldnt get rid of, and with just plain water it wasnt working well at all.

i kept the solution light.. maybe a dime to quater size amount of soap too 8-10 oz of water.. just enough so its not 100%, but smooth to the touch..

edit***

ok this is the last tint i did, i didnt have my cam handy, so i couldnt take step by step pics. ill try next time...
this is a flex lens with silver mirrored tint. you really have to watch the corners with these ones. in the bottom pic, i cleared a area in red, this is where a airbubble wouldnt go down. not beause of the solution i used, but because of the way the design is.. i worked the airbubbles out going from left to right(center of the sun out to the tips of the rays) this causes a airbubble to form.. didnt catch it in time .. still usable, just not as pretty as the others..



so small u can barely see it, but i can and its a sore sight, click to enlarge

I just did this partway following this tutorial. I also put a video on youtube, I linked to you. I have plenty of extra tint if anyone needs like 1 foot of it... It was the same price for a small piece as it was for a big 10 foot or so piece.



I did a Digi camoish one and a regular camo one(pic).

Not long.. Only like an hour. I was gonna do a full mask one, then I played with the idea of doing one with just half, which looked pretty cool. I couldn't get it to work right, so I just did this.
