Re: Dye feathers?
I haven’t done it, so take this with a grain of salt, but I think Black is going to be difficult—you may want to see a hairdresser about that, thought the process can be a bit messy—from what I hear- mine hair is all gray. I know some folks use hair dyes for various shades of dun and they come out very well as Marc mentioned.
Here’s a link to a discussion on another board about using some of the dyes like Veniard etc
And here’s a link to a pdf from Ron Lucas Senior on dying with Koolaid (note--- use sugar free)
You can get various shades by using different colors, but the advice seems to be to dye them separately, over dying with a different color as opposed to mixing colors and trying to dye in one shot because of the difference in absorption between different color dyes no matter what type of dye you use.
There's a lot of info you can find with Google, and AK Best wrote a whole book about it:
Good luck- hope to see some before and after pics if you give it a shot.
