So...apparently nylon (and mixes thereof) doesn't take fabric dye. Hmm, thanks for letting know AFTER I dyed my hand black. Ok, it was grey, but it was still pretty gnarly looking afterward, haha. I was disappointed- I had big plans for this material. I even picked up a plastic dropcloth to protect my bathtub during the process, soaked the shit for an hour and a half...ack. Maybe fabric paint? I'm determined to use this stuff somehow; my landlord left a whole bunch of lacy-like material in my closet when I moved in.
Two days later, my hand is almost back to normal skin tone :P
