Vinyl Dyes My Opinion Looking for yours! + Decanting! I have had mixed results using the Duplicolor Brand. Postive results have been with my G1 seekers. It seem to just soak it up no problem. With about 3-4 coats of white its perfectly even. I'm then able to procced with what ever colour i've picked. With no loss of detail. The pitch black plastic like face, swivil part for wings don't like the dye as it doesn't even soak it in, it just sits on the surface like normal paint. After reassembling the toy I found that for the most part everything went back as it should. However, the little pags the connected at the end of legs (where the thrusters snap on) was a little harder to do as they were already a tight fit. I'm assuming that the dye may have swollen the plastic a bit in the drying process. But were only talking less then a milmeter around the whole diameter of the pag ( less then 1/32 of an inch). So I count it as prity much nothing, but enougth that I had to mention it. ***New Result from second seeker I've done*** Tape off any pegs or holes that are required to reassemble the toy. I experinced more swelling in this seeker then before. You can read in more detail in one of my post below. Negative results and tips i've learned from trial and error Some one on some other thread has probly already stated this, but don't apply it like normal spray paint. You will end up just making it develop a film. What ever you do, do not scratch the part if there is any bubbling or film development. Especially if its within an hour of you spraying the peice. You will end up taking a bit of the plastic off with it in the process. Where if you just do a little more then dusting it (light spray per coat), you will beable to maintain any type of detail on the figure (no bubbling no film) . Additionally, due to the fumes, this should be done in a well vented area or just out side for saftey reasons. A spray can of this at your local Canadian Tire ( I'm from Canada if you havn't realized lol) will cost you about 8.99 before tax. Colors from duplicolor are limited to the OEM, unless your store is lucky enought to carry their Tuner Colors. Now, the cans come in 12 oz size only. I've looked around the internet and found a company named brillo which produces 4 oz cans with a wider color range (50+), however there mainly earth tones as they are a shoe company. I have yet to try them out as they do not ship to Canada. Actuall example I have for a negative experince would be my G1 Soundwave. I'm assuming its of a more denser plastic then the Seekers as it toke me over 11 coats (more then one 12oz can). Its white base coat still didn't look as goods as the scrap skywarp I did up. Once I'm finished my project I will post a few dozen photos to show the progression start to finish. My opinion on using this type of dye Postives: Personally I enjoy this method to changing the colors of the toy vs painting. As it doesn't have any significant changing in the demensions of the toy. No chipping if applied correctly. You only need to clean the toy before applying the dye. No need for base or top coats to protect it from chipping etc. Its just all around easier to use. For the more experinced person out there I would assume this would be great for a base background color. As they maybe able to apply more standard painting methods on top. As to make a very nice Custom. Negatives: Limited non earth tone colors. Making it harder to have the more intresting color schemes, that a more professional Kitbasher might want or need. Due to it being only avaliable in standar spray can also limits the more experinced people from using more convential paint application design work. However I have yet to try taping off a section and try to die the non taped area. I'm not sure if they dye would leach into the taped off part or not. Due to the nature of the dye having acetone, i'm assuming that it would spread out. If anyone has any advice, tips or questions, I hope the community here can help. As I'm still learning myself.
