How to dye latex

February 24, 2019, 4:27 PM · I have a strad pad, and it really helps with keeping my jaw hickey to a minimum. My issue with it is that it's beige and the audience is able to see when I haven't washed it.
I need some sort of non water-soluble dye that will bind with the material to colour it black.
Ideas?

I've been an SP user since 18 y/o and won't play or practice without the pad. No skin irritation at all. Added benefit: more jaw traction. No slippage here.

Anyways. I'll still try to colour this thing and see what won't rub off.
