How to recolor bag? (Brainbag)
I have a numerous of TomBihn bags and have been using them for some years and are very satisfied with them. I buyed most of them when I was working in the telecom/IT-industry some years ago and travelled a lot. I am satisfied with the colors I choosed for all the bags except for the red colored BrainBag -- since two years ago I have started studying and therefore I can afford buying a new one. But then I thought that maybe it would be possible to recolor the bag.
Has anyone tried recoloring their bag or have any tips about how to paint/recolor nylon?
Thanks in advance!
I think you might need to re-read your post?
I think you said the exact opposite of what you mean to say?
I re-color mine on Ebay.
Not Kidding it works,but I like the Red BB?

I only do this with Dyneema, but I take a Sharpie marker to color in the white lines to mute the tone down a bit. You want to sit in a well-ventilated place, use good lighting, and spend a few evenings while you watch TV. In my experience, the Sharpie Rub-a-Dub fabric marker version is better (but don't try their "stain fabric marker" version because that one doesn't work at all).
