Default I think I solved my bleeding problem

Hi I started dyeing yesterday and just got killed by bleeding dye even though I was mashing the contact paper down till my fingers were sore. My problem was getting support on the other side of the disc so I wasn't flexing the disc while pressing against it, which I think cause some of my problems.

The work-around I thought of was taking a frying pan big enough for a disc to fit in, filling it 2/3rds with rice and making a peak in the middle. Then I would place a t-shirt over the rice and mash my disc down onto the peak. The rice would flatten and form to the disc and give me a much more solid surface to push against. Then I would use a spoon with my thumb behind it to flatten everything out. Works like a charm so far.

Anyone else have a different method they would share with me also? I'm always eager to learn.

This is disc #3 and my best one yet.

You can search the subject......or just use your hand under the disc and a credit card to push down the edges of the stencil.

That is what I was doing before but it wasn't working for me.

It is a Star TL. I'm liking the pan of rice things as well. I just finished a much more complicated dye and it looks awesome. This is on my Z XL.

Tampon or a pad would fix bleeding problems.

I place my disc face down on a table (or other flat surface) and rub a credit card back and forth on the back. I found, with Contact Paper, that I was being too rough and stretching and/or tearing my stencils using a credit card. Using my method, I can be as forceful as I want. The only bleeding trouble I've encountered is with the thin outer ring of Discraft's circle stamp. I just use my hand to double check the area where/if it's exposed.

Yeah, I clicked on this thread thinking it was going to contain gory details pertaining to your clever use of tourniquets.
