Thanks guys. It's been fun figuring it all out. The internet is an amazing source of info. I don't use the dipping process. I make a mix that I brush on. Combination of dye, liquid detergent, rubbing alcohol and water. Here's a copy of what I posted on another thread.

The iPoly dye by Jaquard has worked well for me, though I've only used the red. I still use Rit but through some research found out the product can't have ND on it. I don't use liquid, just the powder. Plus I don't dip or soak, I mix the powder with Rubbing alcohol,and sometimes some water or a touch of liquid detergent. I have been able to get a painterly effect and am learning by trial and error. I look at old stores all over and when I find Rit dye I open the box and check the marking on the package.

Example:
15 Black = good
15 Black ND = bad

Look to the back of the stacks because I've gone to hancock fabrics and found Rit dye from 2009 behind boxes from 2011. They just push the old ones back and keep putting new ones in front. A little tip I figured out. So far the non ND colors have worked but I haven't tried them all.

Also, with this paint technique the dye sets quickly into the plastic, depending on how potent you make it. Water it down and you get subtle effects. I found Innova Pro plastic takes dying well. But not KC Pro.(This comment was in relation to the thread which was what plastics dye well. I saw a comment that Pro plastic didn't but I've had success.)

Pics at start of thread. "My Boy Blue" is on a Pro wraith. The "fist" shows building up layers of dye by painting.


One more thing: Rubber cement makes a great resist to block the dye. It can be thinned with acetone. Still working out the best ratio for that though.

The first stages I have vinyl on the disc and cut out the dark parts and dye. Then remove some more and dye some more. Then I hand paint areas and use rubber cement if I want to protect areas. So it's a combination.
