Did you guys know that you can use rit dye to make your colored zip ties? This would allow you to buy a package/box of clear/white zip ties and make 10-50 colored ties! But it does take time and if you only need a few colors I'd suggest http://www.securecableties.com/ You can only dye clear, white or gray nylon zip ties. Using a old pan your don't care about... (not your favorite can't live with out pan ) Boil enough water to cover the amount of ties you wish to dye. Lower to a simmer and add dye color of choice Place ties in the dye water and simmer for 5 mins (shorter time lighter dye longer time darker the dye) Now here is the tricky part..... pull all ties out of the dye and rinse... then place back in to dye if needed (darken) I suggest a mesh bag or a nylon bag of some sort (I use panty hose socks) so its easy to pull out at 5 mins. rinse. add back to dye. pull out at 5 mins. rinse. add back to dye etc etc etc Ya all get the idea right?
