    Here's our tutorial, comprised of different members, including TFmaster's (R.I.P.) method:

    Dye Tutorial

    As far as what brand, don't know if they sell it there or not, but here in the states, I have used Rit brand dye (liquid type) and have had success both times I have done it.

    Hopefully some fellow UK Radicons can chime in and help you out.

    And remember to practice with some junker parts first! :thumb

    I'm in your boat, hear every1 talking about what paints and dye's they use and i can't find anything, i have just found somewhere that does styrine after 6 months searching, i think your best bet is to buy online, or if you have any radicon friens that live in america send the the money for it and ask them to send it to you.

    Couldn't you just purchase RIT dye via ebay? I see many available on there for $1.00 USD each
