This was a very nice experiment - I'm tempted to get some of the other colors now that I've seen what you've managed to pull off.


Never do that. Because the connection thing in the inside will get filled with paint, and it drys and renders the helmet unusable. Trust me, I ruined a prefectley good white helmet this way.

Actually, if you read ALL the posts, you will see that Vinil Dye is absorved by the plastic.
Shelved bricks(???)

Oh, sorry then. I've done it before with Testors permanent modeling paint. That stuff won't rub off at all. And I destroyed a knight's visor doing that, now I only have one.

I'm not familiar with vinil dye, is it anything like vinil paint? Because that it was I thought you were taling about. Vinil paint is very thick.

Nope, it is not like paint at all. A helpful difference here: Paint covers a surface with pigment, whereas Dyes change the color of the surface itself. Think of the different of painting your shirt and dyeing your shirt.
