    Rolling eyes continued crazy actions

    so i went yellow on the way to green

    and then went green, it looked nice

    but it just wasn't right, so back to yellow, sort of mustard, so a bit of time with some masking tape and a razor blade...

    but that didn't do it either so.... this is phase 1 {phone camera shot..

    phase two was to cover most of the first two colors and add a few dark green shades

    this morning i thought the 206 module colors were all wrong for this so in goes the 225E

    i call it swamp fighter

    a little better light on it

    I think i'm done with this strap and bezel

    Magnificent! I have always wondered if this could be done but didn't risk it. Too bad the white skins are unavailable or I'd have to try. How did you "cover" the colors to add others over them?

    Beautiful, well done!

    Great effort with creating this cammo effect, I may try this one day myself.

    The green, yellow and orange colors on bezel and strap match up nicely, the 225E module just adds the cherry on top

    Awesome! I had been wondering about how to mask. I was afraid tape would just come off in the hot dye solution or soak through.

    Now to apply this new knowledge...

    i didn't boil it with the tape on, i put it in cold and used running hot water to warm the dye container so it never got over 120 degrees, for this multi layer coloring it seems best to only go warm and let time work for you.

    AMAZING. I am really blown away. Like others, I had always thought about how to replicate a camo look but you seem to have perfected it! Unbelievable work.

    I've never seen anything like that done DIY. It looks professional, well-designed, and well-executed. You have genuinely a great feel for doing that - nothing looks wrong in any way.

    Just awesome
