Dye

Been searching through posts all morning and can't find the answer: Now that Rit doesn't apparently work anymore, what's the best (and easily available) dye alternative?

I don't think you were searching that hard. The thread immediately below this one is titled "Jacquard iDye Poly -- Rit Replacement".

I actually read threads on dying until my eyes hurt. Couldn't find many recent posts, alot of old stuff. Not trying anything technical, just want to turn a white disc black. Thanks for the link!

I don't think anyone on here knows the meaning of "easily available". What I meant was: something that might be for sale in an average town, not something I have to hunt for.
Nevermind.

Got a Joann's Fabric near you? It's "easily available" there.

If not, just hit up whatever craft store is in your neck of the woods. Tell someone you're looking for dye that would work on synthetic fabrics. (they're made of plastics, like discs)

You can also try an art store. I have two in my vicinity and both carry iDye poly.

I tried Michaels and a few other similar stores.
I ended up having to drive to the Joann's across town.

I ended up buying it off Amazon.com, if you have the time to wait a lot of the third party sellers offer free shipping.
Depending on your availability of craft stores it might be a decent option.

That's my problem, everything's too far. Not worth a drive for one box!
I do like free shipping! Not sure how many sellers pay to ship such a small order, but I'll find out.

I searched "hot stamp" and all the hits were about removing them. What if I want to keep it? Will black dye cover it? If possible, I'd just like to color the disc leaving the stamp intact and clearly visible. Thanks.
