Does anyone have instructions on Dyeing plastic furniture? I have some green plastic furniture that I would like to dye black.

I just finished up some Imbel stuff using Brownells Aluma-hyde matt black. Granted its black over black but it came out great. Time will tell how it holds up. I followed the directions one of our members posted a while back. Try a search.

I used Krylon "Fusion" paint for plastic and followed directions on the can. Rustoleum has some too but the Krylon can has a better nozzle. As with Rotten II I don't have a performance report.

Here's the method some are using to dye light colored HK's parts black:

Thanks for the help. I may try out all three methods on spare HK stocks. The Dye looks like the best choice for new black furniture and the Aluma Hide for a green finish. I'll try the fusion on some old Century clone stocks after I get the tar pit finish off of them.

I posted pics of my build in another thread. The furn. is Imbel that I refinished with the alumahyde.

Gunplumber, Thats the second time in a week you've ruined my day. I was really looking forward to one of your flash hiders on my kit with that sweet dyed black Oberndorf wide handguard.
I appreciate the heads up though.

linear chain polymers wont dye well ..the fusion would be the best bet as it has the keytone in it to allow something to stick .....kinda remelts the plastic .allowing the bond .....chemistry class "76".he he
scuffing the surface with fine sandpaper will help get to the meat of the plastic ...may be some oxidation or warm blood of the vanquished on it ...he...then let her dry for a few days ..without touching it ..to make sure all the solvent /keys are gone into evaporation land ..
