Flesh Color w/ Idye?

Does somebody know an Idye color mix that I could use to achieve a (caucasian) flesh color? Thanks.

Bump for an experienced response. I am wondering the same.

I would guess that a good place to start would be a combination of orange and/or pink dye depending on the desired hue. For appropriate brightness, maybe dilute the dye more than usual, and use a short dip/application time. Better to err on the side of going too light.

I am going to try this on my Okthrowberfest disc, but have not done it yet.

Hopefully, mpacker5 doesn't mind me sharing. He did a very nice skin color on a dye a while back and I asked how, here's the response:

"I mix probably less than 1/8th teaspoon of old Rit scarlet in about half a Gatorade bottle cap of water then apply it with a cue tip.
It usually takes a few coats.

I imagine Idye poly red would work just as well."

So basically, it was done with multiple, short, room temp applications of red+water mix. Who would have thought?

Here was the dye:

Check through the Dye a Day threads and Okthrowberfest (past threads and there is another contest coming up) entries to see if you can find the color you are looking for and ask the one who made it. Bennett and DyeingToPlay may be good options to ask directly as well as several other experienced dyers in those threads.

I think using a combination of brown or tan with light application would work well then a smidge of red or pink to warm it up. but start light. Besides yellow, the old RIT powders dye nice with rubbing alcohol, add a little liquid soap to help with any painting effects you may want to try.

Thanks for the feedback everyone. I think I will do some testing on the back of the disc and see how it works.

Darth maul and trogdor discs were for me. They looked great and the arm color looks better in person. Free bump.

I tried the watered-down red dye (Idye Poly). I was pretty happy with how it turned out. No picture just yet, as it was on my Okthrowberfest disc...
