I have had a look and haven't found this posted on here yet,
I can't take all the credit for this I got the idea from a loadout article in airsoft international.
I took my ACU trousers and bought some water soluable dye (I used dylon but am not sure what you have available in your area)
I mixed three colours according to the instructions on the packet and put them in a plant spray bottle and used it like spraypaint to cover the trousers.
After leaving it to dry overnight and then washed it again according to the instructions.
The results:




If I was to do it again I would use more brown and perhaps spray each colour twice as it is a little light.

A word of caution the dye mixture is slightly caustic so cover the floor and walls and wear protection on your hands to prevent having multi coloured hands.

That is what the guy in the article had done so I thought I would go for something a little different.
The process is fairly easy but I think it either needs darker colours or being done twice to darken it down bit and more brown. I do like the way the pattern shows through giving more variation to the colours.
