    Will dyeing my props make them unbalanced? I read here where someone did that to their props. I would love to add a bit of color to my all white bird. I don't have a prop balancer. Thanks.

    My question is how much dye do I use in order to do my 4 props one color?, I have a 8oz rit liquid color I wanna use, do I use the whole bottle or half or how OZs of it?, I wanna use just enough water so I can submerge my props in. I have read other posts about it, but no one is clear as to how much dye to use, thanks

    I used the entire thing in shallow water. Got it hot and then took off the heat and popped em in. Checked them every so often for color.

    You really need to balance your props no matter what. It is not that hard and really makes a difference.
