I've been having fun with this one, It's easier than you think.

It's as easy as cleaning with an alcohol wipe, and spray painting.
It dries super fast, workable within 20 minutes. And I've been masking and making sharp edge designs with it.
Today's lil project:

I started at 3:00, was finished by 4:45. I was amazed. I was masking over dyed surfaces within 30 minutes.
Try it! If you have a seat and it's the wrong color, or if you want a certain look, the dye is around $8 a can.
I have 3 cans and already planning another saddle!

Very cool!
I'd like to do this with a US flag design. Keep us posted on how it holds up.

Thanks!
Little star stickers on a white seat are all you'd need to mask the stars, then 1/4 to 1/2 inch tape for stripes, I have someone local wanting me to do an American flag for them already lol

Well done!

Great product. I used that dye on my F150's interior, it sticks to anything. I bought a few cans of black and covered the grey door panels and a few trim pieces, then sprayed plastic parts on the lower front bumper. I also sprayed a black cotton ball cap that had faded, like new results.
