I have been thinking about the "solution" that jeff has been said to use. I was thinking maybe it's a pre-soak for the disc so it can take the dye better. Some sort of chemical compound that would "loosen" the plastic to make it a tad more porous. Since all of the dyes i see from him are ALWAYS vibrant, i would assume this would assist in the process. What i don't know is, if the surface of the disc still feels smooth or it is a little rough like when you wipe away a stamp too long with acetone and it gets a slight texture.

Just food for thought, who knows, maybe jeff is a chemist and has cheap access to some chemicals us normal folk can't get.

k, FYI Mcquires tire gel......BAD IDEA!!! it seems to break down the shaving cream and turn it into a gooey mess...which then rolls over to the dye and it doesnt mix in evenly. i now have water that beads up in my sink from rinsing my mixing bowl lol

ohhh and the scent doesnt stick with it either

It has already set where the small veins are. You can't smudge or smear it. The larger veins in the center are still wet so I will let them set until morning. I have done three discs and I will be putting one of them in a bed of s/c in the morning as well.......

ok, im sure we already saw this, so why are we having such a difficult time with this? this is convo between people on the PDGA site from back in 2005. What is it we are missing? is it the consistency of the dye? is it that we have too much tide on the plate? i just did some straight laundry detergent and put the dye on top. I can see when I pull it out the wave aspect but its like the dye is suspended in the tide, so if it bakes i can see the dye getting to the disc but not really. im lost

I figured out how to do a brainwave style dye. Use fairly thick rit dye & tide. Place some in a plate, take the disc and press it top down into the dye then pull the disc up off of the plate. If you don't like the pattern you got stick it in the dye again until you get something you like.


See how easy it is! Not the same dye, but you nailed the technique. So simple. It still takes good technique, practice, dye mixture, plates, etc... but it's not brain surgery. It's just Brainwaves.
