I've been seeing alot of question being asked about how to dye a fig.I didn't realize it was unheard of around here.This will be a thread to give you the low down on how to do it.
Some Food lions carry it.Wal-mart has a better color selection.It can be found in the cloths detergent isle.
Bring a pot(if you plan on using the pot again to cook food with,i would suggest buying a new pot) of water to a boil.Pour the powder in(i've never tried the liquid,not sure how that works).
Get something to keep the fig. from touching the bottom.It will warp or melt the plastic.Let the fig. soak.Take the fig. out to move arms and legs around to get the dye to cover all the joints.I normaly let it soak for an hour.Repeat until you have it the way you want it.
Run cold water over the fig. to get the dye out of the cracks on the fig..Don't let the dye splash,it will stan anything it touches.Let dry and there you go.It will out last paint and there is no chipping or coming off again.
Feel free to add anything i missed.I hope this helps...
