I'm looking to buy some clear white Kanohi kaukaus.

The whole reason I want these kaukaus is because I am going to make a one time run of purple kaukaus, so if you have a white kaukau but want it made purple let me know.

Hmm, I'll start as low as you may think is reasonable, then. Would you do $10?

Seeing as how this will be a limited run for 3 (4 including the one i will be keeping for myself), I was thinking of selling them for about $35 + shipping.

Wait, I can just get some RIT dye for 5 dollars. Nevermind.

$35 seems awful steep for something, that while interesting, nearly anyone can make with the right stuff...

The problem is getting the right stuff. I did tell people how to make these masks, only because what I use is no longer made.

I only stated that that was what I wanted for the masks. I put that price or there fully expecting to have counter offers.

It's not as easy as just putting it in the dye.  Store-bought dye is meant for cloth, not plastic.  There are a lot of different dyes and most of them give a grey-ish color nothing like the advertised color.  If you want the bright purple ones like I used to make, you have to use the right one, which (as Omega12 says) is no longer made.

 

Also, if you want the dye to go into the plastic and not just rub off you have to heat the masks to near their melting point.  Too hot and you ruin a batch of masks.

 

Also, if you want a deep color you have to use concentrated dye.  Unless you have a bunch of $ for dye, that means small volumes, and that means it is easy to boil it dry and again you ruin a batch of masks.

 

It's easy to say "I just have to ..." but it just means that you're a talker and not a do-er.

Research shows that saying "research shows" increases your credibility whether or not it's true. It's true!

Hey I know this is off topic, but I can't message you, so I'll just post it

My name is Andre. I'm the owner of the Platinum Avohkii, I remember reading a long time ago that you made a display for the Solid Gold Hau for kelly? I remember seeing your custom kanohi and I was wondering of you have any rare collectibles or custom stuff left? I'm planning on opening a gallery for my finished collection once I rebuild it, and I would love to have some customs of yours for it.

Thanks
Mc
