Is disc dying dead?

I know i've been out of the loop for a while, but last i heard RIT changed all of their formulas and nobody had found any suitable replacements.

Anyone got input?

Wow, that's a loooooonnng time ago. RIT even has a new dye called dyeMore (I think) that supposedly works fine.

But iDye poly has been the go to for years - at least since I started dyeing like 5 years ago.

This may already be answered somewhere in the preceding 63 pages, so I apologize in advance. I've stumbled my way into owning a variety of clear and white discs and unfortunately I prefer bright colors. I'm thinking about dyeing the discs as solid bright colors, but I'd like to still be able to see the stamps if possible. Do dyes bleed into the stamps if they're not wiped first? If so, is the stamp still typically legible?

Water mixes will leave your stamp intact.
Dyes with acetone will destroy them.
Dyes with soap/detergent/shaving cream are hit and miss. SC tends to just remove the color from foil stamps which is kinda dope. Ive made some striped stamps by using SC to remove the color, leaving silver foil.

Can anybody point me in the right direction of an easy way to turn an old dark blueish proton ion into something I can actually find? Just wanna make it a brighter color. Preferably a cheap easy way, cuz I'm broke and dumb lol

This is mostly true:

Though I've seen a coat of worm dip appear to brighten a disc a little, but not enough for what you are thinking.

Your best bets are silver/gold sharpies.

I have been using I-Dye Poly, but cannot figure out how much of the powder dye to use, and how much acetone, or water to use? Is there some ratio that should be followed?
