Positive looked at wrapper twice since then. Atleast package says idye poly. To make it worse the gf got some on her shirt and it washed out. I'm completely puzzled right now

the red I dye poly I have been using has an iridescent sheen to it. I have been using the color intensifier. I have had so much trouble out of the red. I have bought 3 different packs all with different lot numbers, all of them bleed out of what I am dying. to get the dye to take I have to let it soak in a boil for 20-30 minutes. no way would I do that to a disc, it would ruin it. it seems like the red likes to cool down before rinsing. once again I would not get a disc anywhere near boiling water.

I'm defiantly not putting my disc in boiling dye. Most of dyeing I'm doing is floating in dish gel and gonna play with marbling some and painting. A good red is all I need in my color lineup and thought idye poly would work...I'm going to do another sample test over night tonight too see if it will even soak in any.. If not guess I'm goin to try something else

Mason-jars for the win?

My guess is the temp was the kicker, mine didnt take too well until I heated the dye, and at times the disc slightly

heating the dye or discs will help the dye take for a more vivid color. If you heat the dye in a pan, you can float the disc on top without issue. I dont like this method though, just a PITA. What plastic are you using? Also (if you're wiping the stamp off the disc anyway), try adding some acetone to your dye mix. this can help it take better and quicker.
