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.
