What minis take dye?
Anyone have any success with dyeing minis? Which ones were they? Also are the innova glo minis made with glo dx? or champ?

ive tried to dye regular innova minis and the UV minis and it didnt work BUT i did have great success with the star minis and the first run champion aviar minis. the aviar minis dye very well

NoThingness 07-07-2012 02:50 PM

awesome thanks. now to find a stash of star minis or aviar minis

discgolfcenter sells the mini aviars and clearwater sells the stars

a cool thing you can do with the UVs is mask something off and whipe them with acetone or let it sit in shaving cream for a while. when you take of the mask the part that touched the chemicals/SC wont turn pink nearly as fast or get as dark. kinda a neat thing, its like a hidden dye that only shows up in the sun

my cloud 9 mini took dye

austin234 07-09-2012 02:44 AM

also i tried to dye some gateway minis, didnt work at all. im pretty sure the zing minis wont take the dye and the little flyers probably wont either. their plastics all seem to be the same or close in composition

also the innova sparkle champ minis from dgv take dye very well

I ended up finding a good stash of the glo champ aviar minis to suit my need. Will update when dyes are done.

austin234 07-11-2012 02:14 PM

lwhat are these you speak of? link?

NoThingness 07-11-2012 02:19 PM

I called up the http://www.clearwaterdiscgolfstore.com and asked. They have a stash of the glo champ avair minis but they are not listed on their site. $3 each and I grabbed 10!

They look like this:

austin234 07-11-2012 04:57 PM

ah those ones, i havent tried dying those but i do have a few. let me know how it works!

I put elmo on one of those for my daughter and it blurred pretty much right away. I hope you have better luck. It was one of my earlier dyes though. Maybe I should try again as the local shop has a couple of those still.

NoThingness 07-13-2012 08:14 PM

Do you have a pic of this blurred mini? a before and after blur?

austin234 07-13-2012 10:06 PM

it seems like the cheap thin innova minis have a coating on them? maybe that prevents the dye from getting into the plastic and makes it blur easily in the plastic coating? im just thinking out loud. ive noticed the coating more on the uvs and the old glow minis with no star stamp

if you dont have to have glows i would recommend sticking with the first run aviar minis. ive dyed alot with good results and ther use to be tons of dyed ones on ebay. you can readily get blue, dayglo and orange from discgolfcenter for i think $3 each. with those minis you can be 100% sure theyre gonna look good and dye great

NoThingness 07-13-2012 10:13 PM

I got the champ glo first run Aviars (with star stamp). Fingers crossed that these work well. I dont need them to glow once dyed but I hope they dont blur too quickly. This is for an art project for wall hangers

austin234 07-14-2012 12:45 AM

ah thats cool. but the ones you pictured arent actually mini aviars, theyre the aero mold. i have one in my hand right now and they do feel and look semi like glow champ, its hard to tell cause theyre small but i think you should have decent luck

Bwfearns 07-16-2012 05:53 PM

Most Minis are made with the cheapest plastic blends possible from what i have been told, and these blends dont take dye. The Mini Drivers have weighting agent in them and may take dye but i have yet to get one, be careful of "star" stamped minis that may not be actual star plastic blend.
