I got to try out some iDye today. It is awesome. I used blue and green on a yellow echo star, and both worked very quickly with low heat. They also showed up pretty vibrantly, for being on yellow plastic. I left the green in longer to get it darker(Army green), and that was only like 5 minutes. This stuff is great, and I cant wait to see how it works with marbling.

Read through the whole thread and I think I have the process down.
1. Mix 32 oz of water with one packet of iDye
2. Heat to dissolve (what temp should the mix be when dipping the disc?)
3. Dip disc for 5-20 mins depending

Seems pretty straight forward

Question First dye (entire disc)

I'm going to use this dye for my first dye job, and want to asks few questions.
1. I'm using a large pan and 96oz of water so 3 packs of dye, correct?
2. I'm dyeing a Crystal Z Buzzz SS. Do I need to add acetone to the dye?
3. Any suggestions for uniformly dyeing an entire disc?
4. Lastly, can I just boil water in the stove then add it to the dye in the pan?

Thank you in advance for any help.

I use 1 pack to 32 oz so that should work. why such a big batch. I use 32 and keep it for a long while.

no acetone to the dye it should be fine with just water and heat.

if dyeing whole disc. let the disc float on top of the dye for a bit, then once the dye cools submerge the disc entirely.

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.

Why such a big pan? You could do the same thing with a cheap aluminum pie tin. Or go to a goodwill and buy a frying pan.

Adding the hot water to the dye should work just fine. Then just completely submerge the disc, stamp down. (If you go stamp up you are more likely to get air bubbles under the flight plate.) You could put some marbles or chopsticks or something like that in the bottom to keep it from resting on the bottom. However since you won't have heat you don't have to worry about burning the disc so it might not matter.

I was given the pan for free, otherwise I would use a smaller one. After this I may buy a smaller one anyway.

Northern I'm gonna ask the mods to add this thread to the stickied techniques thread. If you would add a comment on how you are prepping your iDye these days I'm sure I won't be the only one who would appreciate it.
