Colored spacers

I was wondering how semicolon colored their spacers?

Probably spray painted them. I’m pretty sure they anodized the metal on their bot to make it black but you can’t anodize spacers so I’m guessing just spray paint.

Most people color spacers by dyeing them in boiling water.

@Sylvie would probably have a good answer for you. Taran appears to have insurmountable experience with dying, boiling, and painting VEX parts.

Get synthetic rit dye, put in boiling water, add spacers, stir for a few minutes, let cool and serve over rice.

Blasphemy. You should obviously serve it with noodles.

Does that work with the black spacers?

I know it works with virgin white nylon spacers you can buy from other sources.

You almost definitely won’t be able to dye black.

I was reading @turbodog note as “can I dye the black ones to another color”. My guess would be no, since they are made of black plastic.

and ranch sauce

A general rule of thumb, you can only dye something darker than it already is.
