But clearly not the ones that Worm dye comes in. I'm not sure where this question even came from as I have never heard of anyone buying worm dye and then transferring it to a glass container.

I think they were diluting it and needed a container...and the glass jar is the safe bet.

Bingo. I have diluted mine and glass mason jars from the Dollar Tree is a cheap way to store mixed dyes. I have 7 jars sitting behind me on my desk. Only reason I diluted the worm dye was because initially I was trying to change the overall color of an entire disc and needed more fluid volume. For stencil or spins, I would leave it at full concentrate.

I had a Discmania yellow swirly S-Line that was pretty gnarly colored. It suffered from the typical swirly star "mud" look. Even with a brownish yellow base, about 20 minutes total dye time transformed it into this; (and this is after heaaaaavy use)

A little more purple than I was wanting, but coming from a brown/yellow, I'm pretty happy with it. No effect on the stamp until it scuffed a few dozen trees and gravel. But, when it came out of the dye, the stamp was still wholly intact.

Worm dye absorbs quickly, creates (imo) deeper, richer effects, and in small doses is safe for foil stamps.

That looks great! Definitely picking up a bottle. Thanks for posting.

I have two bottles on order. The shipping ($6.99) is killer for a single bottle, so I got pink and blue. I can't wait to try it out on some white discs, or maybe glow.

Given the above, I might try it on some less-than-ideal colored ones as well to see what happens.

I finally got around to trying the Quick Coat worm dye on a white Pinnacle Rival.

I did a 3:1 solution for 20 minutes. It looks good but I was hoping for more of a bright neon pink.

Any recommendations?
