Hello

I recently bought a really nice G1 FlowerBelle! <3

From a very sweet seller on here too!!

Her body is perfect! Only factory flaw to her eye paint... and faded hair! That's it!

I was wondering if I can use rit dye on her hair? What color would you recommend to match her original pink?

Do you think it's even worth messing with?

And her eye... can I just lightly color it in with a black pen? Or paint?

Thanks xoxo

I would be apprehensive about the highlighter just because it might stain the body, your best bet is to get some RiT Petal Pink.
It's worth messing with if you want pink, I actually like her with the white so I'd leave her, but it's up to you.

I do customize here n there. Just cant rehair.. yet ;)

But I have used Sharpie permanent markers on some of my customs.

Here is a g4 Fluttershy I made into a "Galaxy Pony". Her hair was the original very light pink we see with Fluttershy. I used a black and a dark pink Sharpie to get the different colors in her hair. It's never stained or bled out. Even after being put into a zip lock back for several months. I sold few of these on ebay. They did good in shipping too!

I was thinking about doing this with Flowebelle's hair. Just find a light pink permanent Sharpie.

But... then again...I dont want to ruin her. She's far more valuable than a G4 custom which I can experiment with.

I might go with the rit dye.
...or just leave her be.

As the others said, RIT dye is what you want ;) I would advise against Sharpie because it can bleed, fade, become sticky, not dry completely (as in you'll touch it later on and it'll come off in your hands and potentially stain your pony's body) and lead to a poor product over time. ;)
