All Rit, I had some problems with the iDye and haven't used it in a while, I think because I mixed in the "conditioner" or whatever it was. I've been meaning to get some more but haven't yet.

Also of note, the purple and fuchsia are liquid RIT, the teal (from the basket lady) is concentrated (1 pak to 12 oz h2o) powder

Two in a set of four for a trade/commission.
Deadpools Sword

Surfer's Trident..this thing was a heinous PITA. and towards the end, the plotter had done so many jittery zigs and zags, that the nut on the blade holder loosened, and the blade depth got borked...so lots of bits weren't cut deep enough

Rotate the vinyl, not the compass, and you'll get better results. So do it on something low friction.

Here's my reason:

Here is one I did last night. I seem to have gone a little dyslexic when I sized the cut on the plotter but I didnt notice until after I had weeded it and I didnt feel like trying again. The Red too very dark very quickly on the green disc. I checked after 2 min and it was was barely noticable but after 4 min it was a dark blood red.

Here's my reason:
Great discs dude, too bad they weren't hand cut that would have blown my mind on the surfer! Totally agree on the rotating the vinyl not the blade, and WOW that's a lot of RIT. Dan Howard, never use the "conditioner" all it does is ruins the dye for our purposes. Give it another try, I just bought another round of colors for 30 bucks, 8 colors.

Thx for the tip. That's how I cut all my curves, but not sure I would've thought to use the compass that way.

Im sure it would have happened eventually, but it took me a few times
