cool. but is that rit and acetone they're using?



No that is not rit and acetone, not sure what it is as I think they like to keep it on the down or we wuld all be doing our of spin dyes. If anybody knows what the dye is let us know! Is Dr. Dye still around? He used to sell dye and I wonder if anybody here has used it? It might be the same kind of dye that they use in that video

you gotta make the dye more dense by adding additives, so it doesn't run off so quick. Then you've got to let it "seep in" for a day or two. You might be so crazy as to try thick dishwashing detergent.

It's really difficult though, to find the correct mixtures. Certain colors need more dye/detergent than others.

I've got to go... I think they'll find me soon now.

I'm afraid I've said too much.

If one were crazy enough to try what you propose, how would they mix the rit? Mix it with water, then app the detergent to thicken it, or just add the rit right to the detergent?

Thanks for the info. Have one drying now. Dye doesn't seem to be holding to the disc but I will play around and see what happens.

I think this might work! It thickens your dye and keeps it from running and or drying out. At only $12 a pound its worth trying.

P.S. These guys have a great selection of dyes and pretty good prices.

I tried it real quick and yes it does work. I didn't make anything to spin the disc I just kinds threw it in place if that makes sense and it worked fine. I let the dye sit on the disc for a day or so and it came out with a nice looking dye on it. I will try to post a picture when I get back tonight.

Ok, let me put this out there. I did this very quickly as I just wanted to see if it would work. I have not had time to get back into it to perfect it but as you can see the quick sloppy results were decent so with a little attention to detail I think it will work just fine.

Here is what I did. I went to Walmart and bought the plastic empty condiment holders(think ketchup bottles)
I poured the entire bottle of Rit dye concentrate into the condiment bottle then topped it off up to the neck with dawn dish liquid. This actually made it just a little to thick and I really had to spin the disc to get the ink to move. I am going to keep adding a little while until I get the right viscosity.

I then applied the dye to the disc and spun it. I let the disc set for a day and the washed the dye of and that was it. The white disc was the first one I did and I tired o use a few f the colors to see what they would do.

You don't want the dye to thick because it won't spread out when you spin it and it will take days/weeks to fully dry otherwise when you wash the disc off the dye will run and get onto other areas of the disc.

You also don't want the dye t be to thin because then all the colors will run into each other and not be what you want it to be.

Experiment a little and I'm sure you will find it works be able to cme up with your own process.

Isn't Dawn colored? Did that affect the color of the dye at all?

Doesn't seem ti. I think the dawn I used was blue and the yellow was still yellow, light yellow but it is there. Might be able to mix a little acetone to the mix as well to get things to setup a little quicker.
