Vinyl guck...

Postby ChaseGod » Thu Jun 03, 2010 6:07 pm

Just did my first dye and when I weeded the stuff I wanted off for the next color I found there is the sticky guck and I don't want that on there for the next dip so how do I get it off without screwing the already dyed portion? Sorry if this is mentioned somewhere else but I have not seen it.

Thanks in advance and I plan to show off my work as soon as I figure this out.

If you've already dyed the disc, then the color is in the plastic and is impossible to remove, at least completely. So just do pretty much whatever you want to get the gunk off, apart from the harshest chemicals.

Don't have any experience though about this though, so you might want to wait for a second opinion.

Don't worry about the gunk. In my experience the dye will go right over that stuff.
you should be fine.

I am having the same problem. If you run it under cold water and rub hard you can get it off. But it takes forever. I started using solvent from work. (I'm a printer.) But it will lighten the dyed color a little. But not enough to make me stop using it for now. My experience is the opposite of acidbath's the dye will NOT dye through the gunk. I am interested to see if anyone has something that works well. Since I started doing lots of multi color dye's the process to remove all the gunk between each color is driving me nuts.

Dip-dyeing with water will not dye through the gunk well, it needs to come off. Whenever you are weeding the vinyl between color dips, keep a trickle of hot water running on the disc as you carefully peel the vinyl off. This will minimize goo residue. After weeding, do like eky8 says and use cold water and furious rubbing, along with saliva and hot water with furious rubbing as well.

Weird. I've gone right over it on some of my jobs. I just peel off layer two, and throw it in the dye. When I saw that gunk at first, I thought it was ruined. but after dying several I noticed it seemed to not even care if there was anything in the way.

Thanks for all the help, I did not think I would get such varied answers but I went ahead and dyed over it. It seemed to work but you can see small specks where the dye did not take as well. Here are the first few I have done. Thanks again to all for the info on the site as it was really fun.

2) Purple Skull on Champion Wraith
3) Zombie on Glow Champion Xcaliber
4) Lion on Blue Champion Xcaliber

I find that putting the disc in the freezer for a couple of minutes makes the peel cleaner.

Yup first time all hand cut. I really have to credit the site as to why they turned out well on the first try.

Those are exceptional dyes. Especially first time dyes. I'd like to know where you find those patterns. I've looked for images similar to those and haven't found anything nearly as nice as those. Great work.

I have had the small spots of non dye on the multi color dyes I've done where the guck stuck. You can see it in the red on the target dye in the figuring out the dye process thread on page 2. It's not terrible but I find it annoying.

laundry detergent, let it soak on disc for 5 mins. or so. rinse with hot/warm water while rubbing with a rag. I use something with "shag" to it. (towel/ old sock inside out).....lefty
