Just dropped the ugly colored clear parts in a boiling bath of black rit dye and watch the magic.
This look cool
Nice! (but Brut's hand and feet are grey. )
That looks so much better....it really fits in with the aesthetic of the Target exclusive!
I've never tried using rit dye, but that does look much better. I might just give this a try to.
Dye is a beautiful thing!
How long do you have to keep the parts in the boiling pot for? Might give this a try myself.
i let it sit for maybe an hour or more.
Black RIT DYE is a Radicon's best friend!
KYLASH327 you boil yours? I once wanted a Nemesis Jetfire... Dropped him in the boiling water, 2 minutes later I had black taffy. Now I have a dedicated crock pot. Invert a teacup saucer on the bottom, add 1/4 cup acetone, 4 packets of my color (I never use the liquid, it never comes true to color). Add cold water to the the fill line, add the figure and turn crock on low. Just before the figure is to the color I want I turn off the crock. Let the water and figure cool completely... ALWAYS turns out a nice dye job. Forgot to mention... I always do this on the back patio OUTSIDE.
