Default Shaving Cream Dye No Craters

Hey everyone. I was wondering if someone knew of a certain technique that gives the fewest holes (craters) in a shaving cream dye. I have spent so much time in the past trying to snuff out every single hole and re-top the shaving cream to no avail. I will still ALWAYS get a nice big hole of white where the dye does not sit on my disc.

Anyone have any suggestions?

Not I. I never was able to figure out how to completely avoid this. I would use a ruler to get a perfectly smooth bed, but then the SC/dye mix that I put on that would always cause a couple small holes.

Maybe a runnier SC consistency?

Maybe. Idk I have tried some runnier trials but maybe not runny enough.. I am affraid of it being too runny and the disc falling straight to the bottom.. Idk if that would matter or not.. idk.. I have done straight powder (idye poly) dyes as well with shaving cream. I am sure that every single time my shaving cream consistency is different. It is usually left over from what I used for the bed.

But yea... no matter how hard I try I can't seem to get it perfect. And then it honestly looks like crap bc you have this beautiful dyed disc with big ass (or little or multiple) white spot(s) on it!!

It's not a crater or blemish, it's a feature of the dye!!

Just have to keep re-levelling.
If you aren't scraping excess off with every swipe, you don't have enough.
You want to make sure you have totally filled your pan/plate/ultimate.... Whatever you are using for your vessel.
I use a 10'' wide spackle knife/spatula thing.
It's wide enough to stay on both sides of my ultimate disc I use for my bed.
I may be a bit OCD with it but I don't get craters.
Another thing to absolutely avoid is dripping water onto your bed after you have your colors on it.
That will make a white spot "crater" that will show up as a void.

Lol. Right. It was just a bad retelling of an old programmers adage.

"It's not a bug, it's a feature!!"

Vinnie, yea idk.. I use a ruler to level it out and I do make sure that I have a good amount on top before leveling so that I am creating a perfectly flat bed for the disc every time. How runny is your shaving cream mix?

Also put the disc in from left to right (think dip dyeing) to prevent air bubbles/pockets. If you put a disc in flat at one time it can have those little pockets of air that have to go somewhere. They get locked in between the shaving cream and the disc and mess you up.
