    Re: Yellowed resins query

    I finally decided on a colour for this one, green's the way to go after realising it's one colour G I haven't got. I went for emerald, I think it will come out a nice shade mixed with the yellowed resin.

    I went for liquid RIT dye as I figured it would be easier to mix rather than powder.

    Has anyone used the liquid and got any tips? I've NEVER dyed a G before so any advice will be very much appreciated, i.e. what sort of mix ratio, length of dyeing time, do I need white vinegar to stop the process or no need to bother?

    Cheers 😊

    personally, i would leave it as is. retains its value as original. once dyed, you subtract purist collectors.

    Well, once yellowed it has already lost a good bit of collectible value. But, not sure if the OP is looking for this to be a shelf-queen piece or something to casually wear and not worry about it.

    I think green would look great. I've seen some jelly green ones. You might try for a "mint" variation, kind of green/blue. All of the dyeing instructions should be on the bottle. You may want to try this in steps so that you've got a better chance of it not getting too dark.

    Re: Yellowed resins query

    Cheers guys.

    The odd thing is that I kind of don't mind the colour it is now, but the voices are telling me that because it's not the original colour it should be changed.

    I guess I'll think about it for a while and see if I get brave with the dye!!

    Actually it is the natural color, it's gotten a patina to it like silver. And, any pro says don't clean old metals as it destroys value.

    completely no problem with the powder. if you can dissolve a teaspoon of sugar in your coffee you can dissolve dye in boiling water ;)
    thing with the liquid stuff is its not as strong so you need alot of it to get the same effect. also with the advanced yellowing of the resin it will def. have an effect on the final colour, tho the darker green and a little extra "baking" should take care of that.

    i say go for it, yellowed jelly reminds me of aged computer equipment from the 80s and 90s haha

    Re: Yellowed resins query

    G'Day,

    That is a very nice watch!!!

    I have dyed a few, and only stuffed it once. I forgot to remove the band retainer and it melted / deformed to the point that I could not use it again. They are very thin and don't like the boiling dye. Put it in a separate container with dye that is not to hot and it should be OK. Also, start with a light mix, you can always add a little more. I never bothered with vinegar rinses. I stirred them on the stove until I got the colour I liked, rinsed it with cold water and that was it. Use a wooden skewer as a stirrer, it will not conduct the heat as a tea spoon will. I used the liquid one too.

    It is fun to do!!!

    Cheers,

    Pete
