I've been doing some spin dyes, they are coming out pretty good. I want to try some new things and I think if I could thicken up the acetone a bit, the dye wouldn't dry so quickly.. please help.

funny, i don't use acetone in my dyes.
I dont do this type of dye but I think it would be simple, more powdered dye to acetone ratio!
you add corn starch then you can even use a paint brush for placement
thanks for the suggestions. I'm going to try the corn starch idea. Tino, I thought the same thing about adding more powder to thicken, it does thicken it but all the powder doesnt disolve, making a clumpy sandy looking dye.
how do you mix your dye with acetone??
adding more powder doesn't work at all (except to darken color) and only certain dish soaps will work as a thickener.
I have used some liquid soaps that prohibit the dye/acetone from penetrating.

There is a thread on DGCR with soap recomendations...can't remember what brand they said to use.

You have to thicken it though because it will bleed too easily otherwise...it also eats your stencil up faster when thin.
how did the corn starch work out for ya?
