I used the acrylic paint/water method last year on the gauze pieces for the arms of my Sawtooth prop and it worked well enough and was water-proof too. It took quite a bit more paint-to-water than I thought it would and it still ended up fairly light. I wanted a nice dark mossy green and ended up with a lovely shade of sea-foam!

I use one of those empty dry wall compound buckets to dye gauze, if I put RIT dye in the washing machine it'd be my head on the pole at Halloween
