Has anyone else tried this method? I searched the forum for "dye" and RIT" and got nothing. If anyone has tried it, what did you think of your results? I'm mixed. But for larger areas it should be better than painting. I hate that paint comes off too easy. I have only been able to use the microwave for heating and not tried the stove yet. My method barely tents the harder plastics but wam bams on the softer ones and painted areas. I'll try to get un-lazy and show some pictures of my madness soon.

This is kind of a rant to get a load off my shoulders!
For the past three night, I sat and went through what fodder I have been collecting in hopes of finding pieces that would work together to create SOMETHING! I can't get past simple head swaps and it's pee peeing me off! For one, I am not well versed on much beyond the original trilogy. That is a MAJOR road block. I try to create fictional characters just to have something to work on...and nada! I have learned to hollow out heads with my dremel and have it as a tool now if I can think up something! I like Ithorians, so I'm trying that route. I like Gands, so I'm trying that route. Jawas...are just limited. I gather pieces and study them to see if I can possibly make them work together and always get "stuck". I look at all the cool ideas everyone else has had and get more frustrated.

This weekend I bought a Dremel. The 4.8v cordless. I finally bite the bullet and tried to hollow out an older peg head to fit the newer ball joints. And pleasantly surprised myself with SUCCESS! I almost could have myself with excitement. I grabbed two more heads and started cutting and hollowing! I have a little talent there! I will still have to get a feel for the dremel and buy some accessories for smooth filing/buffing. Any suggestions on the best pieces for the very fine smoothing and sanding? I know all of the dremel parts have specific numbers. I want to get pictures as soon as I can to show my first attempts.

So in case anyone wants to check their's, it's a bargain! Too bad mine didn't have much left, but looked like ALL ROC merch was half off what they were last week.

Thanks for our recent trade. Excellent and quick.
