More Rit Dye On Sand PMAG

First, Marv attempted to use the Rit color remover on his green magazine.

Compare with undyed magazine.

A breadpan is almost not enough water for one packet of the solution.


Despite my warnings, he heated a pyrex pan on a burner!  He got away with it though.

One hour steeping in the solution lightened it a lot, but it's still quite green.


Two hours didn't really change much.


Marv wanted brown.  Rit's browns tend to make sand PMAGs green...


#1 is 3 tablespoons of Chocolate Brown.
#2 is 3 tablespoons of Chocolate Brown, 1 teaspoon of Purple and 1/2 teaspoon of Aquamarine.
#3 is 3 tablespoons of Chocolate Brown, 1 teaspoon of Purple and 1 teaspoon of Aquamarine.
#4 is the #3 recipe applied to the magazine baseplate from the color removed magazine.
#5 is 3 tablespoons of Chocolate Brown, 1 teaspoon of Purple, 1 teaspoon of Aquamarine and 1/2 teaspoon of Emerald Green.

Formula #3 on a virgin mag next to the decolored mag.
As formula #3 compares to the Damage Ind. SHTF Brown he's trying to match.
Marv says that formula #5 might be a bit closer of a match.
