Also, when ordering directly from Rit online, you can leave a note on the order that you are dyeing plastics and require the old formula.

The liquid, of course, is not available in the old formula. I will gather up all your comments and concerns and will forward them on to Rit HQ and see what they can do to accommodate having a workable dye for your needs for the future. I'm not sure what is possible but we sure don't want to lose you. Will have more info as it comes in and will be posting officially on the Rit blog as well."

I have used slightly more than 1 box total in several months, actually might have screwed myself at one point by adding some crappy liquid in, but rectified it by adding good. I add water after a bit, and add more dye, but it's still my original container. I only mix up half batches for the most part with my colors. I don't need that much more to float a disc on.

Tried the acid dye with no luck, the only thing it dyed was the white discraft stamp . Never did get the temp past 170 tho so it may not be a fair trial. This was Jacquard Acid Dye, purple.

These formula changes are permanent at this time. It is due to lack of availability and not cost. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Thank you for contacting us.

Sincerely,
Phoenix Brands
At least they are going to mark the new stuff with ND, or whatever.

Problem is, they have released ND without the ND marking. When I get my chance to hoard, I'm going by lot #'s. The worst part is, Pearl Grey... our best marbling color.

Black xxx11 doesn't hold a dye hardly at all, if you do it like 25 times (no exaggeration) you can get a very faint dye.

Wine xxx10 works great.

Batch Number Clarification: The first three numbers of the batch are the day of the year it was produced, and the last two are the year, so 17510 is the 175th day of 2010.
Rit told me to look for boxes up to early 2010.

kcoates were both of those liquid?
