Fishy's spin dye set up might be something to consider, I have no idea how fast it'll go but I would be surprised if max is less than 78.

Thank you koogs and DTP for the warm welcome.
This dye is the one I've wanted to post on here for a long time.I did this nearly 3 years ago (but I took the picture just today} This disc is a testament to the quality of opto plastic. It was within the first 10 dyes that I've done...I think no. 8. It has faded some but not much, and is still one of my favorites.

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...
Bender's reply below used to be true. I have gone high-tech and use a turntable now. Hand spinning became tedious. But, my turntable is powered by gerbils in a wheel

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...
Thank you! I appreciate your kind words!!

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.
You got it! Two turntable and a microphone I do not employ masking- yet
