    Going Green

    Last week i was going to try to make my 206 frog green but on the way to green it went yellow, looked interesting so i left it like that to see if i would like it {the colors can change as time goes by.. it mellowed to a nice yellow

    I was going to wear it today but i felt like i had left something undone by giving up so i started down the green path again
    first mix was a bit dark, OD military look

    Something I have discovered about goof off is if you drop a dye job into it, it will strip a good bit of color in nothing flat, about 5 seconds is all it takes.
    after a quick dip

    i stripped it again, added some more yellow to the mix, boiled it again and one more goof off dip and a quick wipe

    back together

    and a few frog shots


    i can't get the brightness of a Kermit but i like it

    Nice job.

    It turned out really different. Dyeing G-Shocks can sometimes come up with unexpected results. It can be sort of a mad scientist project.

    Nice jungle Frog you got there.

    By the way, where is it? I can't seem to locate it in these 2 pictures
