    dyeing job?!?!?!

    I think I have decided I want to dye my glossy white bezel. Is this a hard process? If I do this will I retain the glossy affect or does it disappear? Do I need to tape off the lettering on the bezel (where is says g shock) so it doesnt turn as well?


    A lot of questions i know. Thanks goes out to anyone help!

    No one has figured out a way to dye the glossy bands yet. You can only dye the matte bands.

    i saw a thread on here where somebody dyed gloss resin and came up with an olive drab color that they werent trying for and just stayed with it bc it looked good. gloss doesnt take dye anywhere near as good as a matte resin does but i can be dyed just not drastically and sometimes doesnt come out uniformally.

    I'm sure that you are aware but they will need a higher dye concentration and considerably more time in the dye for the color to soak in than a matte or regular resin.
