Maybe when you're ready let me know. I might go halvsies with ya. Im in Ann Arbor.

Also on the neb. Couple tips.

1. Laundry detergent mixed with dye for your dye mix
2. Dish gel for your base (dont make it too deep.Just enough to be a buffer)
3. Plate that fits the disc to a T (if at all possible)
4. Dont over blend. (Gotta go a little easier on it than shave cream. Like when flaring it out with the toothpick) little bit goes a long way.
5. Star plastic is choice for this method. Esp takes nice too

hope some of that might help...

Any chance you could shoot me a link for that? I emailed them and they said I should get WashFast Acid Dyes, which doesn't sound right to me. This is the link they gave me: http://www.prochemicalanddye.com/home.php?cat=403

i know i promised an update w my nebula, I've been busy and I'm about to go to work for the night... so no pics. but it is on my fb page in the for sale section. i think my bed was too deep and I'm going to mix straight dye powder w the laundry detergent next time, instead of droppers full of my mix that is already diluted into water.

oddyssey, ill let you know, but before i order, i need to make sure i dial in the colors I'm looking for...

i got my pylam today, and I'm shocked as to how intensive they are w this process, quite nice. however, I'm worried these colors are going to be the same old duo idye hues i already have... i want the bright florecents I'm seeing... do i have to go w the worm dip to use it? i do a lot of marble dye/spider dye/stencil dye... id like to offer this nebula too, if i can lock in the proper technique. can i get these magenta's and bright neon colors from prochem? can you choose the colors you get in their sample pack or are you married to the ones listed?

Nah man. I wouldn't say that. Just depends what colors you requested. The one you said you liked of mine a few pages back, was all done with pylam for the non-spin sections of the disc. My favorites so far for neon'ish colors from them are fuschia, bright green, and flourescent yellow. They have a nice purple too. There is no way I could of achieved those type of neons using idye. Keep in mind all of my pylam dyes are also mixed with the prochemicals additives. It might have something to do with it. Not sure. I haven't really tested without. You can also make that bright green even brighter too mixing in a little bit of their fluorescent yellow. Just gotta play around with em and see what works best for what you're trying to achieve.

I have not. All the colors I have currently I had requested thru Aaron. Also on the additives, you get everything you need in the sampler pack w/ prochemicals. Just a tip in case you wanna give their dyes a go as well. Think you get like a 1/2 oz of 6 colors plus the nsc dye carrier and synthrapol, for round $20 bucks. A little bit of the additives go a long way.
