Default MVP / AXIOM plastic dying?

Does Proton plastic Dye well?

I want to get some and do an easy dye on it, but not sure if it takes.

I would use iDye Poly.

excellent! I'm doing a siiiiimmple dye. I did it with a bunch of prodigy protos and they came out awesome on 400 plastic. Basically I soak them in black dye on warm, remove and heat the dye and repeat, but only warm so the plastic doesn't get too hot, anyway comes out JET BLACK. I hope to get some Atoms and blackem out

Just know that you'll have to mask the rim if you're planning to dye Electron plastic (or Axiom molds). Since you're doing a dip method, it sounds like that won't be an issue for you though.

MVP/Axiom sell blanks. So you don't have to worry about wiping stamps.
