How To Tip: Proline Brawler RIT Dye Steps

Post by SWMS » Sat Apr 23, 2016 3:17 am

The following is a How To describing how to dye Proline Brawler wheels with RIT Dye.

***Disclaimer: This is the technique I used which result in successful coloring. Perform at your own risk.***


Okay, now on to the good stuff! :thumbsup:

STEP 1:

Gather your stuff.

Materials:

- One Pot
- One Box of RIT Dye
- Brawler Wheels
- Tongs
- Water
- Access to a Stove
- Paper Towels

When selecting a pot for boiling water and the RIT dye, be warned that the RIT dye can stain your pot.

So it is best to use a very old pot or buy one specifically for this project.

I purchased the pot in the picture from Wally World for approximately $8.
The picture shows two boxes of RIT but I only used one. Each box cost a little under $2.

STEP 2:

Boil the water.

STEP 3:

After the water reaches boiling point, drop the temperature down to a simmer.

Now add the box of RIT dye. Be careful not to splash. This stuff can stain.

STEP 4:

Using a pair of tongs, lower each wheel into the pot.

With the size of pot I used, I was able to do one pair of wheels at a time.

Let the wheels sit for a minimum of 30 minutes.

After the 30 minute mark, I checked the wheels to verify the color took. I decided to let them sit in the dye for 20 minutes more.

Adjust as needed. Some colors may need longer.

STEP 5:

Remove wheels and allow to dry on paper towels.

Remember that this stuff stains, so be careful with drops and bleed through of the paper towels.

STEP 6:

Celebrate how freaking awesome they came out! :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

One question? what temperature did you set it too when simmering.

That's a tough one to answer. I did not really measure the temp. I set the temp knob to 4/5 for simmering, but I'm not really sure what that equates to in temperature units.
