Default Dyeing my own nylons

I'm interested in dyeing my own nylons for colored headbands and thought I'd ask for your expertise. Can they be dyed in small amounts without wasting the dye? What color pantyhose works the best (nude or white)? And are there any tricks to getting a strong vibrant color that will withstand wash and wear?

Thanks for you help.

If you use the RIT dye, you don't have to use the whole pack. Just use less dye and less water...

I haven't done this with hose, but have with elastic and lace.

All of my tutorials are now available through my etsy store.

Check out my Tutorial Album on Picasa.

Make sure you use a dye that is specifically for nylon. Many regular dyes are for natural fibers.

Reminds me that I saw a celeb photo recently of a gal with dip-dyed stockings on and my daughter loved them

Yes they do. I use the rit liquid dye. Love it. The more you use the brighter the color.
