Well, I'll find out soon enough I guess. It's just that I was planning on using the same coat of glue for a series of dyes (for different shades) that will involve a fair amount of cutting on the disc between dips. That cutting is going to be a pain if I have to worry about not touching the glue the whole time.

I imagine you're using Elmer's glue?

I like to set the glue by putting the disc in front of a fan --- when the glue turns from opaque to clear, it's dry and ready to go.

It will still get a little mushy if you're putting it in heated dye, no getting around that, but it doesn't move while in the dye.

Yeah its Elmer's.

It was definitely completely dry. I guess I just expected expected it to stay hard throughout. I suppose I can let it dry again after each dip, before doing the cutting for the next dip.

We'll see how it goes tonight.

Yeah. Heated dip dye. Don't think I've ever gone longer than 30 min. I do always rinse it off and reapply between colors.

My daughter loves painting and is starting to get into disc golf more- I have only stencil dyed a couple times, but would like to let her paint one of her discs.

I tried looking into older threads about this but only found stuff that was several years old and had instructions for rit dye. For anyone who has had success with paining, how do you go about it?

First, the go-to default dye is now idye poly. And the poly part is very important.

When I paint I use a mix of dye and laundry detergent (regular Gain typically).

Others use a mix of dye and acetone, but that may not be suitable for a kid....

I have also heard of painting with a dye + hand lotion mix. That may be closer to actual paint in terms of consistency.

Do you rinse it off? Or just paint it on and leave it? If you rinse it,how long do you let it sit?

I've got some idye poly- ill probably have to invest in a couple more colors- is there a specific ratio of dye to solvent you use?

Thanks!

Yes, you'll have to rinse it. How long you let it sit depends on how deep you want the color. Really, that's the main thing that separates real painting from painting to dye; time matters.

If you are going for max color and leave it at room temp, I'd let it sit around 24hrs. Try to keep it damp. You can do that by keeping it in a sealed container and putting a damp towel in the container for a few minutes every couple hours.

My ratio is 4oz detergent to roughly 3/8 teaspoon dye.

Has anyone tried dying fossil plastic (RDG Scale)? It is described as kc pro-ish so I'm thinking its a no-go, but was curious.
