Splash dye spire :)

Here is step by step on how i splash dyed my spire.


i first started off by completely disassembling my spire.i got a sheet of adhesive vinyl which is very similar to what the virtue sticker is that came with the spire. i then cut the design i wanted into the vinyl so it looked like this.






i then started peeling and applying the vinyl onto my spire. you have to make sure it is down all the way or some of the dye will get underneath and it won't come out exactly like you want. the bottom was more difficult because of all the curves that it has.




next you have to find the color dye you want it is best if you use the liquid rit dye as opposed to the powder because it will dye much quicker. i chose purple and you can find more colors at http://www.ritdye.com/store/. you can buy this at walmart or your local craft store. be very careful with the dye as it will stain if you get it on your clothes or you hands.




i then added 8 tablespoons to 16 cups of water. how much dye to water ratio you use will affect how light or dark the color is. also how long you leave it in will affect how dark the color is.




after adding the dye to the water i brought it to a boil. i first tested the tray to make sure the color was going to come out in the shade i wanted. i found out to get the shade i wanted i left it in the boiling water for 1 min. then you remove it from the pot and rinse it off with warm water and dry it off with paper towels.





i then peeled off the vinyl and finished drying anything that was still wet. as you can see from this next pic some of the edges were not down all the way so it ran a little. it will also happen if you layer pices of vinyl on top of each other.




after you finish you will need to clean the pot you used with something that has a bleaching agent like soft scrub. i do not recommend you do this in a pot that has teflon.



and here is the finished product I must say I like it a lot.

Don't think it will work with black because it actually changes the color of the shell and not just cover it.

So the purple is now as durable as the white? As far as it rubbing/chipping/coming off?

It won't rub or chip because its not layered. Not sure how the dye will hold up over time though but I expect it won't be a problem.

I was thinking about doing a similar thing on my rotor. Do you mind telling me what kind of vinyl sticker you used? And where I may procure such a thing?

It also seems like you know more about the dye than me, so if I wanted to go from baby blue to purple, should I try red to bled the colors to purple? or just go with purple? Thanks in advance man that thing looks ill

I believe that this is the same stuff. The vinyl adhesive that I used comes in huge rolls.

This next link is the stuff I used but colored yellow

As for the color I would assume that if you used a red it would give you purple because the base color is purple. Not too sure on that because this was the first time I have used rit dye.

Did you just cut the top layer of the adhesive with scissors or what did you use to cut it?

My mom works at a sign shop and they have a plotter that cut it. You can use anything like and x-acto knife or scissors to cut it though.
