Sorry. I guess you did say Rit.

Did you use the I-dye stuff meant for synthetics?


That does make sense, that was probably part of my issue for sure. Yeah I used the dye more which is the synthetic one. I did the same process on a different disc with shaving cream and it was night and day different. It worked a lot better. Iím wondering if it was just that lotion or something.

With champion type plastic you really need to add heat. If I am doing a shaving cream or lotion bed I usually use star plastic and let it sit over night. Its hard to do bed dyes with champ plastic because you need heat and the heat can change or wreck your bed.

I have a G* red roc3 with a blue owl stamp. What colors would be good to go with this and will the colors actually take in the red plastic. It’s a bright red, method I’m using is lotion mix in a clear glue bed.

Red is hard but for sure black and blue will show up and look good with red.

Im about to buy my first dyes.
Without putting my life savings into it (and getting every color in the rainbow), what are some of the recommended colors to start with?

Also, I really want to dye an Innova Dragon DX for a buddy's birthday. I has to be this disc because it floats. It only seems to come in DX plastic, and I gather that it doesn't take dye well. Anything I can do to make it more successful?

Thanks so much in advance!

ProChem sells a beginner pack for discs that will give you plenty of high quality dye for many disks. It’s a great way to start.

As far as DX plastic, it’s a polyolefin resin. It doesn’t take dye well, and there’s nothing that will change that.
