I'm thinking about trying to temporarily dye my beard green. I've been reading up on how to do this with food coloring. I'm looking for advice or personal anecdotes which can help!
So, here is my beard
. I'm going to attend a furry convention in a couple of months, and my fursona is a green wolf
. Here is my tail. Here is me wearing my tail.
Several people have joked with me over the past few months about me dyeing my beard green to match my tail. I was brushing them off for a while, but now am intrigued at the concept and am seriously considering it. I've been reading a lot of instructions off the internet about using food coloring and vinegar to achieve this. The furcon I'm going to attend is 5 days long, so this doesn't have to be a huge long-lasting effect, only for a few days.
I've been using a "color depositing" shampoo on my beard for a while now, to keep the grey at bay. (It is not completely effective, but it does help a bit.)
I'm looking for advice or personal experiences with doing temporary hair coloring, specifically using food coloring, that I can consider while I contemplate whether I want to attempt this or not. Anything shared will likely be helpful: techniques, experiences, whatever.
