I've thought about rits, vegetable dyes + salt, but I figure I won't get great penetration. Paint is right out, it will just peel and be nasty. SO my current thought is GIANT SHARPIE. It should stain, not rinse out, and it may yet fuck up the flame retardancy and/or water retardancy. Anybody know something about fabric dyes? I'm a bit out of my element.
This is the two-cent solution, and maybe you get what you pay for in terms of effectiveness
, but what about affixing a tie-dyed, translucent cloth (tablecloth? bedsheet?) over your tent. Not sure if it would work, but it might be worth experimenting with before taking more extreme measures.
If you want drama to stop following you everywhere, try letting go of the leash.
