an Obitsu doll, was rooted with nylon hair in "raspberry
sorbet", and then the ends of her hair were dipped
in orange RIT dye.
doll hair can be dyed!
doll hair can be dyed using acrylic paint. If you'd like
to purchase the instructions on how to do this, please order
them at the bottom of this page.
nylon doll hair can be dyed with fabric dye, like RIT. The
aforementioned instructions can be used with fabric dye
in place of acrylic paint, so if you'd like to dye your
nylon hair with fabric dye, please refer to the instructions
as well. The fabric dye can be used hot or room temperature,
depending on how strongly you want it to take.
may also be possible to dye saran hair with fabric dye,
and it may be possible to dye nylon hair with acrylic paint.
I've never tried either.
hair takes fabric dye extremely well, and lots of great
effects can be produced.
you're going to use acrylic paint as dye, please either
make sure you purchase the instructions, or make sure that
you dilute it with a lot of water. The effect you're going
for here is dyed hair, not painted hair ;)
far as the regular doll hair and the mohair, the regular
doll hair could probably be dyed with acrylic paint or fabric
dye (although I've never tried), and mohair can be dyed
with fabric dye OR human hair dye, since it is real hair,
even though it's not human! But being real animal hair,
it is keratin based and will therefore take permanent or
semi-permanent human hair dye, including any of the major
permanent hair color brands you see on your grocery store
or beauty supply store shelves, and including semi-permanent
dyes like Manic Panic, if you're going for a wilder look.
