dying the hair of wilton doll pick

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Has anyone ever died the hair of a wilton doll pick? I have one with an almost blonde colour and I want it red for Ariel cake, for tomorrow.
I have just tried soaking it in red food dye but it didn't take icon_sad.gif

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 :)

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.
