its way too light to use dishwashing soap. The foam actually suspends the disc on top of it where as the weight of the disc would just disperse the suds from the soap. buy some cheap shaving foam at a dollar store.

I'm talking about filling the plate with dish soap, then swirling in your dye mix, then placing the disc and waiting...hopfully thats clear now.

I would imagine that would work, or give a similar effect, but you never know till you try it out. I'm curious how this would turn out.

It came out as a super faded dye. It's an extremely subtle dye which may disappear with the natural fading effects of the dye

My biggest struggle with this method is color intensity, even the best plastics seem to respond kinda mediocre, frustrating!

BigBadBids and I have tried this with a star disc and as you said it turned out kinda mediocre. It seems that getting the ratio of dye to shaving foam right is the big challenge. The shaving foam we were using seemed to absorb alot of the dye deeper into it making the foam underneath a little less sturdy and the disc sank a bit into the foam. This could also be do to the $ store shaving foam we were using. So much potential here but alot of trial and error to perfect it

Shaving Gel

Am going to try this method. But I'll be trying it with one of the 'GEL' shaving creams. Will let you all know what the results are. Probably mid-week.

Dan, I'll PM ya if I plan on a KC trip.

Keep on DISC'N

Nothing I'm happy to hear some input here! In my hands the ratio of dye to SC in the dye mix in relation to the water to SC mix in the bed are the critical mixes. The SC dye can never be thicker than the SC Bed mix.

Good luck Iberian and let us know how the gel works out. This week I'm way more focused on Disc'n than Dy'n, and plan on keeping it that way for a bit. It's possible I'll be playing the pecan grove in Winfield next weekend, that anywhere near you?
