Coloring holographic tinsel

Recommended Posts

Do you guys have any luck coloring your holographic tinsel with sharpies? Trying to find a cheaper way to add some color to my nymphs without buying whole spoils of different colors

try coloring the holographic tinsels you have and see if it works

propably wont be "permanent" even though markers say "permanent"

or

norther lights from fly tyers dungeon. at $1.35 per package a lot cheaper and more quantity than a spool of tinsel

Shouldn't be a problem.   I use permanent markers, including sharpies to color materials like thread, feathers etc.  I've used it on tinsel.  Colors really don't fade that much if at all on tinsel.
