could you dye your disc when the dye is at room temp?, will it just take longer or will it not turn out?

Not a problem, the only thing to be careful of is if you've recently dyed on the top, the heat can extract the fresher dye and you'll get a blotchy effect on the undyed areas. A quick mask will prevent this.

When working with paste, mine seem to take forever. Would this idea also help speed up that process, just float the disc top-side up?

I'd imagine it would although I've never dyed with paste. The heat does help the dye take to the plastic, so I'd imagine the additional heat would help speed up your process. I've heard of people baking at very low temperatures in an over, around 120-130, but never tried that either though. I'd imagine if you could find a way to heat your paste up initially that would also help.

I tried it only a couple times, when I had only a small area to dye, instead of remasking the whole disc, but I was so discouraged by the lack of progress, I gave up. I always started with warm paste, but it cooled so quickly, I guess that's why the process never worked for me.

for those of you with a USCutter plotter, will the blades for a Cri-Cut work in the plotter? if so, i can get my hands on a bunch of cheap blades/cartridges if anyone is interested.

Hmmm never seen a blade for a cri-cut. You have any pics?

agent_peebody 03-03-2011 12:01 PM
