not dipped dyes?

Postby karottop420 » Tue Oct 13, 2009 7:44 am

i have noticed everyone uses the dip method. i have done a few dyes with just liquid rit and acetone. i also don't cut my stencels on the disc. i use about a 50/50 mix of liquid rit n acetone. i apply the cut stencel and just paint the mixture on w a foam brush. wait for it to dry, sometimes use a hair dryer, and then rinse.

i guess i'm just askin why others don't do things this way? i havn't noticed it fades any quicker than the dip dyes and i guess i'm just kinda scared of cuttin the stencil on the disc. when i get a chance i'll put up some pics of em.

Then cut it on a flat surface then use masking tape to transfer it to your disc. Same results basically

Remember, what you notice and what actually is may be two different things.

I use rit and acetone sometimes. It does wonders for vinyl tile dyeing.

I find a big, deep pot of RIT to be much safer in the long run, because we don't all have garages we can trash. Lately I have been mixing powdered rit in laundry soap with a splash of acetone, and the results have been looking OK.



No cutting on the disc here. No matter how careful I am, it always leaves scratches. I just cut the image out using a light box and transfer it to the disc with tape.
