There are posts on here with a breakdown. However it's pretty easy. Pick your stencil, Copy it to either contact paper or sign vinyl with a sticky side (I've only used contact paper but most people on here will say that vinyl is better). Apply the stencil to the disc. Cut it out the stencil and then place the disc face down in a bucket or pan with a warmed Rit dye mixture until it reaches your desired color. You will want to make sure that you have no wrinkles in the vinyl or contact paper because they can cause dye runs that can ruin the detail of your stencil. That's basically it for a quick tutorial lol. I would recommend looking for the post with the tutorial here though because it will give you more detailed info.

I'm wondering why they weren't stickied in this forum. It would probably be helpful LOL.

I've only done 3 dyes so far (fourth coming up soon)and still have not gotten any vinyl to work with. I really want to try the vinyl because I get way too many bleeds with the contact paper and can never get a good seal on the edges. It drives me nuts!
