I'm currently in the process of building a Let's Split using Matias switches, and while Matias recently started carrying Planck kits, white is boring. So after a little research, I discovered iDye polyester dye actually works on ABS

If you want to do this yourself, the process is pretty much the same as for dying PBT keycaps, you just have to be careful about temperature. I used an infrared thermometer to monitor water temperature and found that about 75C is the optimal temperature for dyeing, and I would try to avoid going any higher as ABS may start to warp.

I also noticed that the edges of the keycaps had some excess dye but if you wipe this off after you pull them from the dye it should wipe off and leave you with a relatively even dye.

Last of all, the iDye poly comes with a dye colour intensifier. DO NOT USE THIS it is a solvent on ABS and it will melt your keycaps.

The colours were very much not as advertised, the 10 purplish keycaps were dyed using blue dye. The two pink ones are were dyed using purple dye.
