First way: Prepare a varnish for superficial coloring of plexiglass. For this purpose with a sharp knife or a file plane scobs from a plexiglass scrap­. Dissolve them in a strong acetum. On 6 parts of acetum 1 part of scobs. When scobs will completely be dissolved, add in a solution paste from ball-point pens. Colour of paste and its quantity defines colour of a varnish.

The prepared varnish is put on a plexiglass surface. A varnish, dissolving plexiglass and mixing up with it paints it. Use a varnish carefully as the acetum entering into its composition can cause ­ burns of a skin and damage clothes.


Second way: As dye it is used zapon. Zapons are manufactured: red, green, dark blue, violet, black and other colors. In the enameled or glass tray pour a zapon of the necessary colour and immerse in it plexiglass. Duration from several seconds till 15 minutes - all depends on a desirable shade of coloring. To receive rather dark ­ colour, plexiglass can be immersed in a tray some times­, each time allowing zapon to drying up.

For get of any colour shade it is necessary to mix in certain proportions zapons corresponding ­ colors. As zapon dissolves the ­ plexiglass, the painted surface is very stable, is well polished and does not fade.


Third way: Dissolve dye (0.5g) of a set for coloring of photos in methyl spirit. Pour a solution in the flat enameled­ tray and place a tray in boiling water. As the ­ temperature of boiling of spirit nearby 70°C, dye ­ will soon begin to boil. Stainable plexiglass preliminary warm up in boiling water, and then immerse in a tray with dye. Owing to diffusion dye gets into a surface layer of plexiglass and further ­ is not washed off.
