For years I have been buying “Chartreuse” dipping dye for my plastics. But at around $5.00 to $6.00 a bottle I decided to see if I could figure out how to make my own. Since I figured out the formula, I have made my own now for several years. See below the items you’ll need to start making your own for your personal use.

Here’s the products you’ll need to make the dye. Which will make a lot of bottles of dye for you. I can not tell the difference from my homemade dye with the store bought brands.
First you will need a can of Acetone, this can be purchased at your local hardware store or big box store. Cost around: $6.00 or so.
Next you’ll need a bottle of “Color for Plastic Worms” which I bought from Barlow’s Tackle. Make sure you select the color: Item # 405022-026 cost $3.99 for a one ounce bottle. Color for Plastic Worms (Transparent Fl. Chartreuse).
