    GD-X6900CM in Blue Camo - My Mod

    After wearing my newly acquired GD-X6900CM in light green/gray I decided it just didn't suit me the way I need it to (especially wearing this uniform every day).

    So I decided to dye it blue. Here are some pics. Turned out great!

    I can't call it the Maharishi so I will call it the Disco-rishi

    Seriously Dave, your skills are improving so quickly that you are doing all this on the fly "just to see". Love it. :cool:

    Thanks man! The camo pattern (before I dyed it) looked almost identical to the Air Force camo uniforms so it looked kind of weird with my Navy camo. So I thought that if I could make it blue that it would work. Stopped at Michaels and picked up some dye and less than an hour later I was finished.

    Ha ha! You're right man. I do flip a lot of watches. I've kept most of my camo ones though so I think this is a keeper.

    Disco-Dave, curious as to which dye you use? Rye? Powder form or liquid? And what's your process for dying? I've read a few and I'm interested in dying my clear matte jelly frogman resin, just not sure what color. "Ocean grey" or red

    I use Rit Dye. Either powder or liquid is fine. Some say powder is better but I actually used liquid on this one.

    Just pour it in a pot with some water and add some vinegar to the water (distilled white vinegar). This will make the color hold. I've tried lots of methods and adding the vinegar directly to the water with dye has given me the best results.

    Put the parts in the water (after you've removed them from the watch) and cook on medium. Keep checking the parts to see how fast or slow they're changing color. With just resins it'll be a little slower.
