Instructions

  1. Wipe plastic skeleton with acetone and paper towel to remove any manufacturer’s finishes that may interfere with dye absorption.
  2. Heat 1 gallon of water on the stovetop to roughly 200ºF / 93ºC or greater.
  3. When water begins to simmer, add ¼ cup of well-shaken Racing Red DyeMore for Synthetics and stir well.
  4. Wearing rubber gloves, pick up the skeleton with tongs and carefully dip 1/3 of it into the dyebath. Keep the plastic skeleton dipped for 5-10 minutes, moving it around the dyebath to avoid harsh dyelines from forming and achieve a smooth gradient.
  5. Once desired color is achieved, remove from dyebath and rinse in cold water.
  6. Repeat steps 2-4 with Daffodil Yellow and Sapphire Blue DyeMore for Synthetics to create the rainbow ombre.
