I have just tried soaking it in red food dye but it didn't take
dying the hair of wilton doll pick
Cake Central Top Picks
It's plastic, so most things wont take. Maybe try a permanent marker? You can get a broad tip, and color it.

I've dyed mine... went from the blonde to a redhead for a Hula Girl cake. I used straight red color. It was a natural shade (lol ended up same shade as my hair) but I'd say Sharpie if you wanted like Ariel red. I used Magic Chef liquid color I believe... Hope that helps!!
If you're trying again, did you use straight food coloring or did you dilute it? When I did it, I used it straight and assumed I could always rinse it a bit to get it lighter. Just a thought :)
(Duh, sorry, I see you said it was for Ariel...)

I don't use the doll picks, but I have a bag of nappy headed Barbie's I use to bust their heads and arms and legs off, wash, and off and cover in black fondant for dress cakes. I just busted a head off and colored it with an orange Sharpie, and it looks great! It would take a while to do the whole thing with it, so I would go look for a poster sized one, PRONTO! If I had to color a whole head.
