AHas 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 :(
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...)
Athank you, I think I will give it a go with a Sharpie and see how that goes :)
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.
