Both agents allow the dye to sit on top. I used a dinner plate bigger than the disc. Put enough of the Methocel sol'n in it to float a disc (~2cups). Then laid out lines of different color dye on top, swirled with a pencil tip, laid the disc in an let it sit O/N (neither will stand heat above ~90 F). Like I said, still many details to work out but there may be some potential here. If I get time I'll try again tonight and take pics of the process.

Wow, that's like one of those paintings by that artist that paints flowers that look suspiciously like vaginas.

Looks magnificent, and worthy of a few attempts!
But first....
What the hell is Methocel?
And how did you get two cups of it on a dinner plate?
And how did you heat it up, since you mentioned 90 degrees?

I looked up Methocel...I don't have any laying around the house(who would?) and it looks expensive.

methocel = methyl cellulose is a food grade thickener that may be able to be purchased in bulk cheaper but I get mine at Dharma Trading Co. It is used by fabric designers in marbling fabrics, thats why I happen to have some around the house. Bennett your right to ask about heating it, in powder form it's probably more explosive than grain dust and must be handled very carefully. But once in solution it is a completely safe and non toxic, can be disposed of down the drain. Dharma sells it for around $2.00 an ounce, I used 11gms to 4 cups of water, so it is kinda high, especially since its a one time use item.

I really have high hopes for the shaving cream, cheap, available everywhere, and my wife won't ask any questions! I'm gonna try it tonight.
