How to Custom Dye Your Electronics

Although this tutorial focuses on dyeing a MacBook case, you could use it on any light colored electronic device–turn your old beige keyboard electric blue.

It’s a time consuming process but the end result is a custom case with color that won’t chip or flake off. Hit up the link below for the full run down and a pile of pictures.
