painting techniques

Ive been dyeing for a few years now and started hot dipping. Last year i discovered painting and have been doing my dyes that way ever since. Now that Rit is trash, what is everyone using for painting with idye poly? Mixtures, amounts, shaving cream?, etc. Ive seen a lot of sweet dyes on here and Im curious what pople are using for gradual colors changes, also.

There's a big ole section of disc dying techniques that will answer all of your questions. You just gotta read.

Lots of info already on this, just poke around a bit you'll find it. Been trying to work up a write up on iDye, but alas no time left in the day...

I have been reading, and reading, and reading. Still have yet to find any solid info on painting with idye. Its mentioned several times but nothing about what its mixed with. I used a small amount of rubbing alcohol with a cap full of liquid rit and it was great. i prefer that painting method to dipping and im sure people on this forum are doing it and its working. Just want to know what the dye painters are mixing it with. And also, never needed shaving cream to thicken in up so Im curious what thats all about.

I was never a fan of acetone or rubbing alcohol. I know it works. Have used acetone. Just not my favorite style. I use liquid laundry detergent and powdered rit dye. The marbling technique uses shaving cream and lots of people have taken that basic formula and used it for painting.

Acetone and rit works great and dyes almost instantaneously, so be careful. Acetone and idye poly works great too, 1/8 tsp powder to 2 ml acetone. If i want a more controllable and uniform color I add 1 ml of free and clear all laundry detergent, but then it needs to sit a while on the disc. Eky8, how long do you let your mix sit on the disc?

what does the alcohol/acetone do to the mix? does it help to set the dye from fading/expanding/ making the image fuzzy? Will that work with the dipping method?

I did a few dyes about 2 years ago and all of them faded and expanded/got fuzzy. I was caddying for Feldberg at the Yetter and all of the dyes he had were getting fuzzy. I've also seen a lot of people with DD dyes that are fuzzy/expanded.
