    Hey all, I have discovered very reliable, non-warping methods for dyeing the individual parts of the junkion mold. Most of the parts take dye pretty well.

    It is possible to make a Scrapheap and duplicate nearly all the colors with the exception of the metallic gray forearms. I will post pics later when he is assembled.

    The figure below was made from
    Junkeap:
    Torso, forearms, shoulder, right lower leg, shoulder hinge plates

    Wreck Gar:
    biceps, left lower leg (seat), feet, hands, groin, hips

    I will get into a step bye step breakdown at a later date. The process is based on the following video. I use 3/4cup water, 1/4 cup of acetone, and about half a pack of Rit fabrick dye.
