Hey, i am new here but i am gathering my materials for the picnic dress. So far the search for the sequins is going really difficult. I have found a seller online, but the ones in vanille colour is sold out. I did found 'clear' ones. But i don't know if these would be Rebel legion approved?

if not, i have also been searching for a punch to make them myself, but also no luck there for anything inside the EU. So if anyone would have another idea or tips, it is greatly appreciated! Smile[/img]

It is possible to dye clear plastic with the same kind of dye you use for polyester fabrics. I've used iDye Poly with good result on clear plastic, and I've bought it from within the EU.

You could also hand-color them with some kind of permanent art marker, but I think Johanna's suggestion is probably much easier.

Hm so getting the plastic clear ones and trying to dye them?
I am just a bit afraid of ruining them, since shipping to europe is really expensive. That is why i hope just the clear ones would be approvable.
Or otherwise playing the waiting game and hoping they restock the other colour eventually.

The clear ones won't be approvable as is, so either go with Johanna's suggestion or try and wait and cross your fingers. Smile

Thank you in advance again.

Just got them in and they have a nice pearl pinkish shine to it! Think they are pretty perfect. Very Happy being patient and crossing fingers indeed payed off.
