Dyeing Olefin Material

I have a white olefin hat that I would like to dye to match a dress I’m wearing to my son’s wedding. When I researched olefin, I discovered that it was not an absorbent material. Is there a dye that would work, or do you think fabric paint would adhere without cracking? I appreciate your help with this. Thanks.

Dear Shirley,
You can’t dye your hat, but you could possibly paint it. Get a copy of dharma’s catalog and look carefully through their many fabrics paints. Another option is to search for a natural fiber hat that could be dyed. It will all be an experiment, however. If I were you, and I wanted it to be perfect for such an event as a wedding, I would have someone dye a hat to match.
Happy wedding,
Jennifer
