Ok I know that I said to Liam porter that I would make a thread showing how to dye hessian tape after some research and hunting around for the right equipment I have gotten some hessian tape and some dye that "should" work. I have currently taken a small sample piece of it just to test the die and see if the hessian is treated or un-treated as treated hessian won't take the die. If all goes well I will buy a few meters worth tomorrow and I will have it done by tomorrow evening just in time for Combat Souths summer evening game on Wednesday.

Here is a few images of the dyes I am going to use:

Dylon Choclate brown dye I wanted woodland brown but they didnt have any: Brown
Dylon Velvet Black dye: Black
Dylon olive green this is the only olive they had left theres not much of it but thats life: olive green

And the sample piece of the hessian which I'm going to add a before and after ordeal to:

Before: http://i563.photobuc...b3a7b0-orig.jpg

I got more hessian today quite a lot of it in fact:

hessina cloth

and this is the results so far I'm going to dye it now:

stage 1 with hessian

The suit with the base layer pretty much done just need to shorten some of it and then shred it:
