So, I'm in the process of updating my Jango costume to be more Seeker-accurate (), and I thought I'd start with my hoses. My current black hoses are all well and good, but not 100% accurate as we all know. I remember reading somewhere that Rit Dye works well to add color to clear hoses, so I thought I'd give it a shot. I went to OSH and picked up some 1/4" clear braided hosing (the smallest they had) and a pack of Rit Navy Blue Dye.
Here's what I started with.
Here's the result after one packet of dye.
It's not quite dark enough, so I figure another pack of navy would just about do it. If not, I might need to add a pack of black. I'll be sure to post pics of my progress.
