All of these are worthy of the Dye a Day page! Great stuff bro, I might just try the shaving cream out tonight if I can find the time!

What are you using in your dye mix? Is it just liquid dye, or do you use any alcohol, acetone, etc?

Dan, do you think the shaving cream would hold up if you were to mix in the dye? Just wondering if different colors of shaving cream would do the same thing.

Moon, that's how I'm doing it now, keeps the dye from running all over.
This tutorial http://www.theindigoonion.com/swirldying1.htm shows the consistencies to shoot for in the dyes but I am liking a thicker base than what they show.

LoPan only the very first one (on page 1) was done with Methocel the rest were done with shaving cream.

Thx LoPan One comment after tonite's adventure is that bubbles are gonna be a b*tch. Too thick and you get lots of bubbles, too thin and the design washes away when you set the disc

Love it Dan. I look forward to seeing more. I know how it goes when you get through all your die-able plastic, but keep it up as best you can!

I did sneak into KC yesterday and picked up a couple discs, unfortunately I'm working all weekend. I got the disc dyeing blues!

I'm a gonna raise a fuss
I'm a gonna raise a holler

about a workin' all winter
just to try to earn a dollar

ev'ry time I get my dyes out

and get them on the plate

my Boss says
No dice, Son,you gotta work late
