they do make several colors, but not in the iDye 'POLY' version, which is what you need in order to dye discs. Though i've not tried it, there enough instances of other members on the forum having zero luck with the regular iDye that i would suggest against it. Its reported to simply not soak into the disc at all, or so very litte that it isn't worth it. There are only 8 or 9 colors in the iDye poly (red, blue, green, yellow, orange, purple, brown, black?) so you may have to experiment with timing your red dip to see if you can get a pink.

i did recently come across this older thread where neon colored fishing bait dye was used with some pretty promising results... check it out:

too denim

A few months ago I needed to grab a champion Beast real quick and the only color the sporting store had was a red wine. For me this is a terrible color to find on the course. I found some 2005 sun orange Rit dye and tried to change the whole top of the disc to that color, but for some reason it didn't take. I then found some 2009 denim Rit. That color took well....too well. I pretty much have a dark purple disc (almost black now). I believe I've bought the last pre-2011 Rit in my area, so I was going to buy some iDye Poly. Will the iDye Poly dye strong enough over the deep purple? I'd like it to be a bright vibrant orange or yellow. Since its already blackish, I was going to make my first attempt at putting an image on the disc. Maybe dye the disc orange but have the center be a chess knight in the black/purple. So will iDye orange/yellow dye over the purple?

Sorry, but it won't work. This isn't like paint where you can layer it on. With dye you have to cover up mistakes with a darker color, not lighter.

You can't go yellow...?

Yeah..."Once you go black..." was exactly what I was thinking while I wrote that post. I guess I better be careful where I flick that one from now on.
