now that I think of it it might have something to do with the parts not being 100% infill. some of the nylon of dyed has been perfectly fine, but those prints were 100% infill. these ones that are turning out weird have all had 20% infill or less.

    maybe the dyes are a salt and dryin out on the surface like you say?

    I had more success dying the actual filament before the printing - I found that the nylon stiffens slightly after printing compared to the 'natural' printed un dyed.

    But love the effect!

    Which nylon are you using?
