Does anyone know of a way to stain polycarbonate so that it is colored but retains its transparency?

Found this video:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nanowe1tG9g Seems fairly simple and straight-forward.  The example used isn't transparent so you should experiment with a small piece first to see if it gives you the effect you're looking for.
