    I personally would use something over the stove, its a lot better for just dipping in and covering. And placing your head into the oven isn't always the best idea, a friend once did so and dropped his onto the metal rack and it deformed part of the head, like you swung a bat into an it left a dent.

    Also I would use navy blue, and coat it at least 3 times, I don't have a great deal of experience with dying heads, also let us know what color the head started at, I would assume white.

  • I like to use denim to dye Navy. I boil the water, then pour the water into a container and add the dye and leave the head in for 15-30 mins to get a good deep color. I feel like the Navy dye comes out too dark but I've got good color out of it before.

    I just dyed a head recently using denim. I sprayed the inside with krylon webbing and it came out like a marble white and light blue inside.
