Thx Moon, that means alot. I've gotten so much info here, a guy just wants to add to the knowledge base!

The shaving cream test disc is in the dye now and looks promising, here's what i did.

Shaving cream!


Smoothed it with a ruler


I drew the lines with some big syringes that I got with a printer ink refill kit.


Swirled with a chopstick


and set the disc in


I'm gonna pull it after 4 or 5 hours and will post the results.

So are you putting the dye under the shaving cream with the syringes or just on top of it

Good stuff Dan.

Some info about the process for fabric. Seems applicable to disc dyeing.

here is what i got


this one I did a few minutes after the first, mixed the dye with some runny shaving cream so it would not run as much.


not sure if it was the shaving cream or the plastic, in my hands that flx feels a lot like the star, but i like the second better. I'm disappointed in that stalker and hope the ones I leave in overnight have better color.

Wish I had more plastic to play around with but the only clean discs left in my bag are DX
