If I didn't have a great condition Wraith I'm already looking to die, I'd probably buy that one, I really like them. It's the disc I most consistently get a good S out of.

When I dye on the top of the disc, Rather than folding the vinyl down under the bottom and floating the disc in the dye, I pull the vinyl up and form a bowl, Then just pour the warmed dye in. My colors have been alot deeper and it seems it takes half the time. I use a free styler catch disc to hold the shape of the bowl.

Do you do this with the dye at room temp?

How much time would it take a rookie to do marbling like this? Start to finish?

I heat the dye to about 100 degrees, Any hotter than that and the vinyl I use starts to lift. I use the free sample 3M stuff. If it doesnt get dark enough the first time, Because it cools so quickly, I just repeat the process.

It's easy and fast, but I guess it depends on whether you need to mix your dye, if you want to thicken it, etc. My dyes are all ready to go, so I think total labor here was maybe 15 minutes, and I let this one sit for about 18 hours (longer than I planned, but you should expect at least 6-8 hours for star and 12-24 hours for champ...depends on the colors and effect you're going for). Labor involved was washing the disc with soap, filling the pan with shaving cream, leveling the surface, making a couple of circular impressions with a large funnel and a small pot, then applying the dye with a syringe, and using a chopstick to carve the lines and swirls. Then just plop the disc in and go do something else. Afterwards, give it a warm soapy wash, stick it in the freezer for awhile if you want to, and then I'll usually rinse/wash again once it thaws out. Super easy and you can do a lot with it just by itself or incorporated into complex dyes with stenciling or multiple colors/layers. Read through the marbling thread on here...lots of good stuff there.

Interesting. Might be worth giving a shot!
