Dye Tutorial

I just wrote out a fairly thorough tutorial on how to dye your own discs using the methods I use.

Gwillim's How-To (dye a disc)

Feel free to comment on that page if you have any questions. Disc dying is really fun and I suggest everyone give it a try!!

Nice post, I still struggle with the rainbow stamps. How do you take those off without leaving a ghost?

I've never had a problem with champion plastic. However, with white Star plastic I'm kind of hit and miss and I don't do anything differently.

I dye about 90% of the time with champion plastic though, so I've not tried too many things to fix the white/star plastic with the rainbow stamp.
