    Look sinister. Is he just dyed, or is there paint/dry brushing as well?

    Curious about your final color scheme/ color layout.

    On a sidenote : do you have experience with Rit Dye Whitener ?

    I'm impressed with the even color coverage and lack of warping. Will you talk about the technique and materials you used please?

    Right now it's just dye. I like to give it a day to set in and then I will put a light coat of black paint over the black dyed parts. You will find that the oils from your skin can effect the dyed plastic - especially when using black and red. All other colors do not need to be painted to preserve the quality of the color.

    I use RIT Dye with a little acetone. I usually dip one piece at a time in the pot for no longer then 10 seconds at a time. It is a slow process, but well worth it. Don't rush it, you only have to get it right once - may as well be the first time. I also keep a cool container of water to dip the plastic in after it is dipped in the dye.

    I'm going to paint the face light gray, the eyes red and scatter some purple paint apps around. That's where I'm at so far...

    Just dye and acetone, no extra water? Do you heat it too? Sorry, I feel like I could ask a dozen questions.

    There is water in the mix. Sorry, I should have explained that better. Yes, I heat it to a boil. I'm not endorsing or condoning it, it's just my way of doing it.

    Update: I let the dye set overnight and put on a thin coat of black metallic flake to protect the dye. I will be dying the hood today.
