This is what I LOVE about this forum and thread in particular! Incredible work!

Think about this time last year, or two years ago -- all that we as a group here on DGCR have learned, mastered, shared, and thrown -- so many new marbling techniques, painting trials and errors and mixes, a whole new crop of talented artists, and now guys like Brainwave Jeff and Philman jumping back into the scene -- I can only imagine what the future holds for this part of the sport we love, but I can guarantee you it will be EPIC.
I'm betting we figure how to dye Glow dye by this time next year...

I just hope someone makes a wide range of dye choices that work for us. iDye just won't budge on expanding the poly line no matter how often I bug them, which is every couple months. Agree though some crazy cool stuff going on. I feel like I'm missing out

How dare you use a clear disc as a test disc. I'm crushed. BTW, Marshall street has white no stamp volts for sale. There were six, I got two of them.

you have to use clear test discs if your testing dye for clear plastic types. it is easier to dye white plastic than it is to dye the clear ones. there are less stabilizers in the clear plastics to "Stain". so if a dye works well on clear, it will work on esp/star for sure.

I think Bigman made the comment about clear plastic because, well that's his thing. Also you mind sharing what type of dye that is?

i knew what bigman meant. Clear is my thing as well, but like i said to ensure quality of the color and the best way to test that is on a clear disc. you will also see swatches of green where i was trying to find a good mix for my okthrowberfest submission.

I don't mind sharing my information but its not something your going to get from a local store, but the good news is you might be able to find it through a different distributor.

If your interested in my source shoot me a PM, i'm not quite ready to post it to the world yet. I'm a little sore about the guy who sells dyes to marshall street. I don't mind people sharing designs, but he was a different level of unpleasant in the emails he sent me.
