I believe that he could be achieving the nebula dyes just by squirting liquid dye over top of the disc. I got similar results a long time ago before we discovered punky color.... and i was using a more liquid dye mix... let me find the pic.

the reason I mentioned floating the dye on top of detergent, is because of a video I saw a while on paper-marbling (ebru). this isn't the video, but it does show the technique:

I agree with you, Goose, bubbles seem like a good theory.

fyi - I've tried to use oil to float dye on top of, and it was an epic fail of epic proportions. I don't suggest it.

That video looks awesome. Very inspiring artform! I think were getting somewhere.

Alongside the theory about the bubbles, I am thinking dish soap is involved in the dye mix (rather than laundry detergent). Only reason i say that is cause one of the reasons I went back to laundry detergent for my spin dyes is because dish soap would bubble up too much for me and I wasnt getting clean lines.

However dish soap might just be the way to go with this type of dye. Now the question still remains, is it the disc sitting upside down in the mixture or is the dye mix put on top and then blown outward with maybe a blow dryer or something or allowed to drip naturally off the disc?

I think I am going to give this a go tomorrow laying the disc in a dish soap dye pool (so to speak) for an extended period of time and see what I get.

Found the original video I had watched on page 32 of this thread:

I'm thinking the base liquid has to be thick enough to support the disc, but liquid-ee enough for the dye to spread a bit..

Well i think we nailed it with the soaking upside down in the detergent/soap theory. Not sure if you have seen my results in the dye alternatives thread yet or not, but I posted it earlier this morning. Learned a few things on my first run, but I think this is the method being used. I have a second disc laying in a dye pool right now. Good work guys

Here's my first brainwave attempt. Used iDye mix with shaving cream. Any tips on how to get better waves? I know Punky Colour works well and have some coming in tomorrow so I will post another try tomorrow.

I messed around with brainwaves with some 2012 Ace Race discs (now the Zombee) for a bit the other night. I did one with SC and one with laundry detergent.

First is the SC, then the detergent. Both were Red, Purple, and black. The Detergent one mixed together very quick, so there's not much distinction. Also, it was hard for me to get the detergent to stand up enough that I could get anything on the disc without covering basically the whole thing. However, this made me want to try more because there are a few small ares that looked pretty awesome (the 3rd pic) - now I just gotta figure out how to get a whole disc to look like that.
