Hopefully that answered most of your questions.

By the way I don't do many spin dyes. But I do use this same basic technique for painting on dye to do multi color work.

goo gone works wonderfully. I have been using it for quite a while. Just make sure you don't get the industrial version or goof off. Both of those will eat the disc.
