Default Quick Coat Worm Dye Questions

I am starting to work toward a mostly pink bag.

I want the brightest, won't lose my disc on the worst whoops missed the fairway and am in a dense lost city of z jungle throw, pink.

Based on the following Reniger comments, it sounds like Quick-Coat worm dye is the way to go:

Anyone have something better?

I plan to buy white discs and soak them in a 50/50 water/dye solution. The ratio also came from Reniger.

Has anyone had stamp problems doing this?

About how long should I soak the disc?

Do I need to heat the water like with powder dyes?

How many of the 4 oz bottles should I get to do about five discs?

Ive used the hot pink quick coat straight out of the bottle with great success but it did smudge a stamp on fission volt i was using a cotton ball on. A little goes a longggg way. Ive dyed many discs with the single bottle. No dye pro here at all tho im sure others will chime in.

It is good stuff in my experience.

I tried local stores but they only had odd colors or garlic sented etc so i ended up ordering from a website.

Pretty sure it was this one:

Yup! Aim is in every way correct. (damn that hurts to say)

Lure Parts Online is the best source.

A little goes a long way. (I actually ended up mixing it almost 3:1 water:dye) and have it saved in a Mason Jar after about 6 uses.

Worm dye is acetone based and will eat stamps if left for a long time. For just color changes without a stencil or design, I typically put a disc in a 1 gallon zip-top bag, add in the dye, "swoosh" is around, leave it for 10 minutes or so, "swoosh" it around again, flip the disc on the other side, leave it for another 10 minutes and that little bit of time sets a deep, bright, and rich UV dye. Love it.

I'll try to get a picture in the next couple days here (my bag is at home) but I have a Supreme Flight stamped CD2 that was originally a muted yellow swirly S-Line and I used the above process of zip-top bag and worm dye for about 20 minutes total. It is a darker pink/purple, extremely bright colored, and did not ruin the stamp. So don't be too worried about stamps. Again, I'll get a pic soon.

i like pink discs too, and the worm dye works great. it will smudge or remove the stamp if you are painting it on undiluted.

Storing it in a glass jar makes me a little nervous.

Is there a problem using a plastic container?

The acetone can eat through plastic, so glass mason jars are the way to go
