    what color dye do I use for Boba suit?

    I recently purchased some white coveralls off ebay;
    http://cgi.msn.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI...RK%3AMEWN%3AIT

    (I think the seller has MANY more, if anyone is interested)

    anyway,I was wondering if anyone has dyed a white pair yet,& what color dye to buy.These are "Red Kap",will they take dye?I know the guys that bought Blue ones have a hard time getting the color out.

    If you do a search here for dying jumpsuits, I know there is a few Threads about it. In fact I recall someone posting a formula of one teaspoon of this dye with 1/4 teaspoon of another and some salt and dipping it all for a certain amount of time! LOL
    Must have been an engineer that posted that cause it was pretty darn descriptive too!

    You might want to be careful, being as that the jumpsuit is a poly blend, I am not too sure how well it will dye.

    Just a heads up,

    Nice find. I'm hoping to snag a couple of those for my Holiday Special Fett jumpsuit. Thanks!!

    I did my ESB jumpsuit out of the Red Kap white coveralls, They were a poly blend as well. I used Rit dye Evening Blue. They dyed nicely, I used some diluted black dye to add a gray tinit to it as well.
