I've been messing around with trying to dye some of my discs, mainly Star plastic. I have been trying to do the paint on Method using RIT Liquid dye with rubbing alcohol at a 2:1 ratio, and I am not having any success the dye mix is too liquidy and I am having a hard time achieveing a thicker paste. If any one can offer any advice or tips I would appreciate it, I am trying to avoid any boiling methods which may deform my disc. Thank you.
Damn looks Like I should stock up if I ever find good dye....Thanks for the info.
I first tried the liquid dyes from Rit.
I could not get a good dye job.
I know that you said that you did not want to boil.
But a friend named 13oo13oo showed me that using the powdered dye
and heating it up does wonders. And it does. I take my made dye, nuke it
and place in a pie pan. Here are the differences etween the liquid and powdered dyes
Liquid dye from Rit, using the painting style. Brushing dye to disc. Came out very light.
Powdered dye mix, heated, and placed in pie pan versus using brush. The dye is darker.
But I am not here to tell you how to do or what to do.
I am just saying that you should find your style.
Dyeing is a wonderful way to personalize your disc.
If your question was direct towards me and "Harry Putter".
The answer wound be one coat.
I brushed several coats and left on for about five hours until all the Dye crystalized.
Then washed it off.
I've been using the new stuff without any problems.
Great job on the dye.
It looks beautifull.
