Please excuse the last reply.I was a bit cranky that day...

No adding dye to something that is already black won't do much if anything at all.

Please Please before posting try skimming over the Q's and A's most of the questions have already been answered several times.

thanks and enjoy!!

yup - as long as its normal white delrin, you can dye it easily - just don't let it soak for too long in the hot water or else it may swell a bit

white and pearl are different types of plastic not colors that can be added to a clear shell...

white is not a different type of plastic. and you can get white dye, therefore it can be added to a shell, it just might not look good. i asked if anyone had tried it and how it came out.

have you tried it harpo?

I think you'll find that it works better on fabric than plastic. If the bottle has contents, and they include something like titanium oxide or zinc oxide, then I am mistaken, but usually fabric dyes are something different, and only remove color or disguise it by applying an agent that reflects ultraviolet, fooling the eye. If I am wrong, be sure to let me know the brand.

as I said before white is not a color you can add.
I know what you are talking about with the ivory but if you read the directions on the package you need to use it on WHITE fabrics or whatever you are dyeing. IT WON'T COVER UP OR CHANGE BLACK TO WHITE.

sorry.my mistake I was writing a reply to an e-mail at the same time I was trying to reply to this thread.
more than likely the only way you are going to get a clear shell white is to use a plastic bonding paint...or look around a find a set of white shells (if they still make them for eggs or revs) I know you can get white and pearl shells for HALO's (I have a set) but I can't remember where they came from.

Hopefully these links will work here...if they don't let me know and I'll se if I can get the pics hosted somewhere else.
they are to the photo albums for a couple of my MANY dye jobs:
be sure toi click on the "view album" button to run through all of the pics...
DONKMASK JT Proteus custom dye job

HALO B custom dye job

the pics don't do these pieces justice but you get the idea...
I have 2 other masks, several sets of grips and a few other things I need to photograph and get uploaded.

enjoy
Richard......

Like mentioned above, you can't dye parts white, but you can bleach them, but it's not a safe idea with a lot of plastics because it will weaken them to some extent (it ranges with each plastic). And as mentioned above, you can't dye aluminium per-say. You can put "dye" in water, and then pass a very high electrical current to it with the piece of raw aluminium in it. But this is not dying, it's called Anodizing. Which is a very simple process if you have the right tools.

Also, just to let you all know, the Liquid dye's, such as RIT's Liquid dye, do not work half as well as the Powdered dyes. They do not require as high a heating temperature, you will still have to boil water though, plain hot sink water will not work. Some other things to take note of:

-When dying white plastics (I'm not sure about clear plastics) the color will fade under long periods of time under the sun so it may change color through time should you have a white plastic dyed.
-Hot glue works very very well in substitute of tape, Electrical tape should work well (it does for me at least) duct tape will give you a funky design should you like it. (the threads in the duct tape will soak up the dye and dye small portions of the plastic)
-When dying certain plastics, it may weaken the plastic a slight bit, but it should still work fine. I will eventually test some of the lenses I have dyed to see how safe they are. Of couse, I won't be able to do the 1000 FPS tests that Vents was able to do.
-Sometimes, if you leave a plastic in a dark colored dye to long, it won't be the color you want. For example - I tried to dye my Clear Dye Stickies dark green, and they came out dark blue.. which was annoying, but oh well.
-I offer simple dying services for many things and eventually I will have color samples for polycarbonate up.

Hope that helps,

-David

EDIT- Sorry, I didn't realize how old that post was.. whoops.. Well everything after the first paragraph is good. Heh..

Just to let you know, I reccommend using ALOT of dye on eggys (2-3 bottles). They're made of a really tough plastic, and you will literally have to boil the shells for about 45 minutes each when using only 1 bottle.
