Is the dye permanent?

Postby isotopic » Mon Jun 02, 2008 6:37 pm

I didn't see any other questions about this...

I tried to dye my first disk about 2 weeks ago following Will T.'s "how to" on this website. I started w/ a white Avenger and used Acetone to remove all logos. I then used a dark green to dye a logo on my disk. However, the disk did not turn out how I wanted. I then dyed the disk completely black, by using "RiteDye" (however, it's more of a purple color).

If I use a light color, say tan or light blue, will it cover the now purplish/black disk? or just add more confusion? Is there anything that can remove all colors from the disk? Acetone wont do it, what about methylene chloride?

I wouldn't say that Rit on discs is permanent, because it will bleed into the disc and fade in the sun, as well.

However, there is no going back. Since you dyed it black it will stay dark and eventually probably turn a light grayish color.

Edit for more clarity: Redying it will not change the color. Light colors dyed on dark colors just don't show up or make the dye darker. Everything eventually goes dark brown.
