Well I just cut him into a ponydoodle cut so he just has a mane and tail. I wanted to do them blue. Will chalk rub off on furniture and things if it gets wet at all? I do remember coloring outside with chalk before and him sitting in it and it would not come out of his hair!The dogs I've seen that were dyed w/ koolaid looked very uneven and I've heard the stuff is messy and stains. I'd use Manic Panic, pet edge or sidewalk chalk. You can get some Manic Panic colors at Sally's, but don't let them talk you into their brand. As tiny as your boy is (he's super cute too) the chalk would be a great way to try out color. It's cheap and doesn't last long.
You basically soak the chalk in warm water and then paint the dog w/ the piece of chalk. Then comb and dry.
What color are you interested in?
Here's a pic of Bailey with a chalk mohawk:
Okay. Thank you very muchI did Bailey again recently with blue and he slept on my new bedspread w/o leaving any color behind. I think drying it completely keeps it from rubbing off on things. I didn't notice any transfer the first time either. Wonderpup is the real expert w/ food color and I think she's tried Koolaid. She just had a baby and I'm sure she's very busy, but you could search for some of her old posts.
