I keep my marbling in the dye for 8-12 hrs and weigh it down into the plastic bags

Layer #1 took about 25 minutes and looks pretty good, I think.
I really like the effect you got, with the small scale pockets. Could you or Agent Peabody enlighten another noob.

I am definately still new to the disc dyeing process. I think I was able to achieve that effect by removing the disc from the plastic bags and then repositioning about halfway through.

First two dyes, a Leopard and an XCaliber. Lots of black to start off, looking forward to trying some multi-colored dyes.

so do you just put a couple plastic bags in your dye pot after its at temp? I'm guessing, the more bags/tighter together the smaller/tighter the marbling.

If I remember correctly, that particular marbling was done using plastic wrap instead of plastic bags which may result in a different look. I put various pieces of plastic wrap in the pot, heated up about 4 oz of dye, and slowly poured on top of the plastic wrap. I then put the disc on the plastic wrap and weighted it down. After 10-15 minutes, I removed the disc from the plastic wrap and repositioned. I let it sit another 10-15 minutes. I believe the more times you reposition the disc, the smaller/tighter the marbling will be. Hope this helps.
