What would be the easiest/most efficient way to dye a 3x3x5 made from a Witeden Super 3x3x3 and a Cube4You 3x3x4 from a white color to a black color?

Preferably I would not like to boil anything but i guess I could do it if it's really needed.
Thanks,
Mw

If you boil it, you will destroy it. ABS can't handle high temperatures without deforming. Check out viewtopic.php?f=9&t=22577&start=0

There have been several other threads and YouTube videos using this process. People get varying results. None are perfect but most come out really good.
