I've got a TS body which is quite "jacked" for the purposes I need. The only problem? I've an AA head without a body and a TS body without a head...now I did some thread diving, saw some rit dyes mentioned, and I'm kinda wondering, will this work on a whole body, especially a TS body that's kinda solid? Any tips/photos/assistance would be appreciated

If you use Rit fabric dye be careful. It can be hit and miss. I dyed a figure dark brown once and he ended up blue. The next time I tried it came out a carmel color.

lmao weird..., I'm assuming you used dark brown? Any idea how that would effect a TS body, and did you warm the solution stovetop and throw the figure in? Lmk, please! I'm buying some tomorrow to test this.

You could always break out the trusty Airbrush and do a little painting!

All you can do is try it. I brought it to a boil on a stove top and left the body in for close to 30 minutes. One of them was a Mac body and I don't remember the other. The different types of plastic take dye differently also even on the same body. I think I would try to paint and then use a sealer.

Yes I used a dark brown.
