Yeah, the liquid red didnt take at all on the champ, the echostar, or the opto plastic. I also tried heating it on the stove and dyeing with that method. I ended up mixing powder oarnge and green to get this for what I wanted to be a nice ruby red. I don't think I will ever use liquid Rit again.

Liquid has it's place most definitely, my best black is from powder, my best scarlet is from liquid, I use liquid mainly for small batch stuff where I just need a little, and powder on the bigger batch stuff (Gradient setup, dips)

I actually use quite a bit of liquid and get good results from it. Whatever you use it needs to be mixed with water to activate it. Or something at least. I've mixed with liquid laundry detergent and painted it on to great results as well.

Water + liquid rit + soap = bubbles. A cool effect.

Heres a new one I have been trying out. Ive been doing a saran wrap technique but using bubble wrap instead of bags/wrap. Gives you the wrap marble but with bubble like circles. Gonna try more with this. This was the first run and I just used it on the border, but I think its got potential.

I just left it alone. Some of the bubbles most likely got deflated as I cut the wrap into smaller pieces.

you could salvage that by dying something black in the red part.
