Be aware that if you use the "iDye" range, then "True Red" will come out orange, and "Fire red" will come out quite pink. I had to mix the two before I got a good red..
The iDye black on its own seems to go a deep brown bronze and just keep getting more brown, but even overnight never ended up black, but I mixed in an "iDye Poly" black with colour enhancer and got a good solid black.

For those who have been successful with any of the red shades of dye, any tips on color combination/amount? I have tried the RIT Scarlet Red and RIT Cherry Red, both came out very pink in the end. I combined the two dyes, and tried again.....same result, pink props. Just can't seem to find the right combination to get a true red color. I'm not too concerned if it is bright red or dark red, just not pink!

Here's a color chart should help. just make sure how water you are going to use to cover the parts. I used the powder but next time I will use the liquid dye.

Yes rinse them off and dry them. The longer you leave them in the dye the darker they will become.
