I was thinking about Irv’s idea roasting to antique a bridge.  Then got to think about how one might dye a bridge color like pink green or purple .  This would accessorize violin like dying hair.  Violinists traditional but in school might set trend.  

I’d like to get incredibow — http://www.incredibow.com/about/ — in fun color and make bridge to match.

Jill75 and others.  My original intent on roasting a bridge, among other violin components, was to change their acoustic properties.  The color change just was an attractive adjunct.  

Alcohol based leather dyes are inexpensive and come in a variety of colors.  Dabs of oil painting pigments spread with a shop rag can also be used.

another violin accessory ripe for color treatment is the chin rest, which may be purchased in maple and boxwood.  A spray of lacquer may be needed to prevent color transfer to skin.  I have also seen maple fingerboard,
