$5 for 10? Maybe $5.50 at the most. But you could do this by yourself couldn't you? Just buy the dye and boil it or something... If it costs too much, people will just be tempted to do that. If yours is cheaper than going to buy all the materials($15?).

On a side note, will you have pink tubes?

Yep, I got the idea from SCP. And I will probably have multiple color options, can't guarantee anything yet though :P

You could do it yourself, but when I was dying these, 30 of them took about 2-3 hours, with constant checking on the pot.

Yeah, I'm not saying it's not worth it. But if you charge too much people will be more tempted to just buy the stuff to do it themselves. If this was a reasonable price, I'd buy like 100 if I could get a discount.

Patterns would be cool as well... Just put wax or something over it. Sorta like an anno. Put wax over it part of it, dye it black. Then take the wax off and dye it green or something.

That's a valid point, and yeah, most people can, and will do it themselves, like I did, but I'm just giving the option for those who don't have the time or resources, at the expense of mine (with compensation of course )

If I do start making/selling these I will have bulk discounts, no solid prices yet. Patterns would be awesome, but I'm not sure how I'd go about doing that. The wax idea might not work since they'll be dipped in near-boiling water for prolonged periods of time.

Depending on price I'd be up for some. I've been meaning to dye my own tubes for the last two years.... but I just get sidetracked easily. For some reason if I could slap down $10-15 to get a few I'd probably do it.

Lol I forgot about that... The only other thing I can think of would be tape. Painters tape or duct tape. Of course, then the patterns wouldn't look as cool.

How 'bout some sorta latex paint that comes off? You might be able to do some funky splash "anno" type patterns with that...

That might work Anyways, when I get it started, I'll experiment, and see if I can get anything to "stick" literally :P
