[Requesting help] Need to dye a lens filter Answered
Just wondering if anyone has any ideas on how I can take clear plastic and totally black it out
I am trying to create a shaped bokeh effect in a uv filter for a more permanent setting than cut out paper (what most people do). Now I bought quite a few for different shapes or if I mess up.
Last night I printed out on sticker paper a heart and placed it in the center of the filter and used Krylon fusion (spray paint for plastic) on the filter. It took quite a few coats to get it so light never shined through.
When It looked good I peeled of the heart sticker and half the paint went with it. An obvious failure.
What im trying now is, I took that filter and scratched it up a bit and I found some super glue and just thinly spread some across the lens (to hopefully give the paint something to grip to) let that sit over night it was too late to paint.
And today I am now putting a few coats on it and i plan to actually cut the heart shape out of the filter.
