Innova Glow Plastic

Postby Itchy » Sun Mar 18, 2012 10:59 am

I've got a glow mini that I'm trying to dye but the dye just washes right off. Even tried an overnight soak with no luck. It's an old box of Rit that I know works on champ/star plastics. I'm 99% sure I've seen and even commented on glow discs that were dyed... any thoughts on dying Innova's glow plastic?

Thanks in advance.

I've found that I have to use heat + dye to dye the glo plastic.

Get the rit dye to almost boiling, meaning the minute you see one bubble pop up, you remove it from heat and put your disc in there. I usually let it sit for about 25 minutes and it works (obviously making sure there are no air pockets trapped on the dye areas.

There are 2 types of innova glow plastic. There is a champion glow and a dx glow. Your mini is probably dx.

Well... that sucks. I guess I'll try heat and if that doesn't work I must have the DX stuff and I'll just cry it out. Haha

Thanks for dropping the knowledge of my fellas.
