it depends on what i am doing. when i am all set up i can crank them out. the "cure" time varies but I spend very little time actually dyeing the plastic. random efficiency

And don't take this the wrong way, as this looks awesome regardless of technique, but bf you're doing individual dips, its absolutely amazing...

He has said that his methods involve no power tools/electricity.

OK, can I just say something here...

DyeingToPlay has to be the biggest innovator that disc dying has seen to date. Generally I walk around and see things here and there like logos, banners, backgrounds, desktop wallpapers and am like, ooo that would be a good dye. Oh, I would like to try that. And then there are other images, typically made in Photoshop with all kinds of dynamic lighting that look seller and I'm just like, forget it, that is outside the realm of possibilities when it comes to dying plastic. DTP is able to capture more images that I have thought to be impossible than any other dyer. The textbook skull last year, this years Oktoberfest winner, and now that black sun looking thing, it just makes me stare and scratch my head wondering how in the world these are made.

Sir, I hope you start selling video tutorials time lapsing your work on a disc. The longer you stay in this hobby the wider the doors of possibilities will open and better the rest of us dyers can get.

Brainwave your work is truly unique and I totally dig it, truly an artist of a different nature to the rest of the dyers.. To the rest of you it is just truly out of control that this is done with dye and plastic. These are legitimate works of art and should be celebrated as such!! I am working my way back into dyeing. For some reason i dislike dyes in my bag at the moment, but having a custom disc is always a plus. please keep pushing this art forward it is simply amazing. Id like to see a thread with different dyers and their progression.

In the few forums i frequent and the entire interwebz, this is by far the best thing out there. sorry for the long post I am tired...

I guess I'm curious if he has some sort of drill or lathe-like, hand, or foot-powered machine that will spin disc slowly, while he makes the circles of color. That's a lot of cutting, masking & re-dipping for a dye that took "mere minutes" to complete.

I don't think it's a dip type dye, and was just curious about the method. But I've been known to be wrong before.

Regardless though, it's a cool dye.
