And fantastic write up there Acid. That's by far the most comprehensive how-to that I've seen, great attention to detail and excellent accompanying pics. I think this should go beyond being a sticky and be an article on the main page. Do admins have the ability to do that? Or know how to make it happen?


Unfortunately only Blake has that sort of access. I wish we had access to do that :( I'll see if I can get a hold of Blake and have him put that on the front page. in the How To Section that is already there.

Well, I think I'm gonna have to start doing the Dip method. I attempted to dye again today and right as I got to painting the last part of the dye, the first part started to lift :( so I got some streaks... :x oh well.
Off to the good will I go to get a cheap pan hehe.

Thank you!

This tutorial is just what I've been looking for. I finally understand the process & feel confident enough to try it on my discs now. :)

You rock!

any of you guys have an idea for using a different material rather than printer paper to make the stencil? It works fine, but if I had something more durable, I could use it over and over.

You could try a heavy transparency (like for overhead projectors?)...that MIGHT let you reuse. You could print directly onto it as well.

Cool. Just a few more:

How many times can I reuse the same dye solution?
Does the Quest/Gateway SRP stuff dye well?

Thanks.

That's the first step-by-step dye process I've seen. Thank you for sharing your process with us. I've attempted to dye discs and failed miserably, but now it makes sense.

I really have no idea about Gateway plastics taking dyes, it's something you've either gotta try yourself, or post on the forums to see if anyone has any first hand experience with it.
Sorry I can't help ya there :(

But as for how many times you can reuse dyes, it really depends on how hot you put it. When I do blacks, and I do a lot of black dyes, it'll evaporate some of the water each time I do it. It's why I have a lot of black rit on hand. So that when it gets too low I can just make another batch and add it to what Ive got left from the previous stuff that's left over

Nice job teaching people to cut the design on the disc. I always think it's good to encourage others to scratch the hell out of their discs.

no matter how careful you are, there will still be grooves cut onto the disc. If I gave a disc of mine to a buddy to dye and it came back all scratched up I'd be a little upset. Not a lot, but a little.

Besides, why cut directly onto a disc if transfer tape costs next to nothing?

I started doing it that way because I couldn't get the sticky paper onto the disc without airbubbles or wrinkles, or without tearing it once I had cut out the design. I mean, if it has a lot of really small or thin cuts, there was no way I could get it on there decently. But seriously, I can't see cut marks on my disc even when I hold it up to the light. Maybe it's because I always have at least a little bit of bleed, and it covers it up. LOL Heck, if you saw my dye jobs, the scratches would be the LEAST of your worries. :lol:
