I use hot water and add the dye in right away while heating the pan up. I get the dye to a light boil for about 15 minutes. Then let it be cool enough that you can touch the pan without burning your hands.

hope this helps
I'm using a large pan like you'd cook a turkey in. 64oz almost covered the entire disc, but not quite. So, I'm going up to 96oz so I can keep the dye/water ratio. Lol.

Do I have to heat the pan itself? This pan is made for an oven, not stovetop. That's why I want to know if I can just add the hot water and dye to the pan after the water is hot.

Also, does it matter if the disc is stamp up or down? Is one way preferred? My biggest fear is an uneven dye job.
