Yeah it's called a color wheel.

No need for any disc golf specific one. End color is the plastic color mixed with the dye color.

Very curious if anyone has any additives they like to add to the lotion bed to make it more spacey / trippy?
I've noticed everyone uses cocoa butter? is there a better brand to use that you've seen better results with, Ive noticed some people blend in like conditioner. The science is a little out of my wheel house, maybe someone's got a trick?
I'm using worm dip dyes

Default Anyone notice advantages with higher or lower temperatures?

First time posting anything.....

I am curious if leaving my setup out in the garage (it's been below 40°)

is actually fighting the dye from permeating the plastic?

Where as if I had it stashed somewhere safe in a higher temp it would help the dye and not congeal the medium I'm using to dye with.

I forgot to mention I am using a glue bed on an old Bandit from Legacy.

Yes, cold fights against you.

Dye gets into the plastic via pores in the material, which expand with heat and contract with cold.

Same dyes, same plastics, same everything, the one in the higher temp will dye more quickly.

Thank you!
I thought there was some temp dynamic going on!

Timing so, I am able to dye perfectly when I leave the disc for 12-18 hours with a glue bed. (@60 degrees)

Star & Gstar plastic.

My question is if I want to speed that up by adding a heat lamp, when should I take the same thing out?

Ok so I’m brand new to disc dyeing, I tried the lotion method. I put lotion down and then dye more rit dye and let it sit over night, it didnt set up? It was in there about 14-16 hours? What did I do wrong? Not use acetone or what?

I think your first mistake was choosing an orange disc.

Not that I’m any sort of dye expert but I always prefer to use white discs if given a choice.

I’ve tried to dye yellow and pink discs and even if they take the dye well the colors just aren’t what I was expecting.

Also, you don’t mention what type of dye you were using.

Sorry. I guess you did say Rit.

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