Would you mind saying what dyes you used and what techniques? I can see the green and brown how to do it, but how did the boot itself become light blue and the leather remain white? Did you submerge the whole boot? Again, they look stunning, easily the best looking remz I've ever seen.

It was a bit of a make shift process to be honest, I only used two colours of RIT dye (dark green and dark brown). The different shades of colours are simply due to the different materials and original colours. As I could not find a big enough pot to use on the stove so I ended up using a plastic bucket which I could fit the boot in, minus the frames and soulplates etc. I then got 6 pans, filled then with water and heated them on the gas stoves along with a boiled kettle - I needed this much water to submerge the boot. Once the water was bubbling I poured all the water into the bucket that I had outside and added the packet of Green RIT dye (I used half a pack for each boot as I didn't have any more) into the bucket and gave it a stir. I then submerged the whole boot along with the frames and backslide plate as I wanted these green. I then moved them about every few minutes and checked their colour for about 30 mins - the hotter the water the better they will colour. I then did the same for the cuff, soul plates and h blocks but used a whole packet of the brown dye. I left the parts to dry off on an old towel in the garden on a nice sunny day, which didnt take long. The soft boot took a bit longer so I stuck them in the airing cupboard and gave them a blast with the hair dryer! I hope that helps - this was my first attempt at it so just kinda made it up as I went along.
