Not the most complicated for sure but it gives you an idea.

1. Cut black outline and dip black
2. Remove precut sections and dip brown
3. Remask, cut on disc and dip red
4. Cut on disc (no remask) and dip yellow
5. Remask, cut on disc and dip blue

This one was easy because of the thick black outline around everything which made the cuts for red, yellow, and blue easy to do.

I really like that rubber cement trick. I guess I'll be stopping by the store on my way home tonight. I've tried Elmer's but was never able to get it to stay on the disc. Thanks velocity.

So yes, it's easier to do when there are thick lines. It's all making sense now!

Sorry for all the questions...

What's the advantage of having a plotter if you have to hand-cut a lot of multi-color dyes? What's are some tricks for lining up your hand cuts on a disc (say you want a seamless transition between colors in different color groups with little to no overlap?) Can you shine a light through almost any discs to see these points?

I can't help you out with those questions. I almost exclusively do multi color dyes that have nice black outlines and have as few remasks as possible.

I use an airbrush for seamless color blending. It is my key when dying a light saber blade. Someone, I forget who, made a gradient bucket, where a 5 gallon full of dye is slowly drained while the disc sits upright submerged in the bucket. The idea is that the bottom of the disc is exposed to the dye longer than the top of the disc creating a seamless transition. Both air brush and gradient bucket have tutorials somewhere in these forums.

This might not be the answer you are looking for since I've only messed with Black dye before, but I use clear contact paper (found with cupboard lining in walmart). That might help you. Just put a sheet down over your original black dye, then hand cut on the disc the parts you want colored, and weed. Plus it's cheap material.

you may want to look at the vinyl you're using as well... oracal 631 is made to be an indoor vinyl and for temporary applications... i cut that stuff all the time for indoor wall decals, etc. the adhesive they use is not nearly as good as the 651 by design. i'd suggest trying to grab some different vinyl. if thats not the issue it'll certainly eliminate a variable.
