How to stain polycarbonate help please
« on: March 05, 2016, 04:06:41 pm »
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.

What are you trying to make with it?
Resin and resin dye.
Never ask 'Why?'
Always ask 'Why not!?'
