Default Sc dye on Opto Claymore? w/rainbow stamp

Anybody by chance dyed the middle portion of an opto claymore, specifically the one with the rainbow stamp, and kept the stamp?

Just curious if I might be able to get away with maybe a shave cream dye in the middle of it or if the rainbow stamp will dissolve. I really want to keep the stamp on this one.

I haven't tried a SC dye on Lat64 stuff, but I've done a few others(West side, Innova, etc.), and they all lost some color on the stamps. The stamp is still there, they just lose the color. They're just silver after the SC bath. I'd recommend doing a saran wrap dye of some kind if you're dead set on keeping the stamp intact.

Edit* I should mention that on a few of my Innova Star discs, I did actually lose some of the stamp. I think the SC has potential to remove some stamps.

Yea...Thats what I was afraid of. I too have had that happen. I was considering either less time in the bath or trying the plastic bag style on that section, but even with that I risk the chance of that stamp dissolving.

I'll probably just play it safe and dye the outer rim.

Might be a good candidate for spin dying (leaving the middle 'as is', and featuring a few bold rings on the outside couple of inches of the disc)?

It would be possible to "mask off" the stamp, then do a SC dye. I'd still be a bit nervous about though, as I'm a fan of good looking foil stamps.

Yea this was my original thought...I kinda wanted to take it a step further as Ive seen a few of these out there floating around already

Yea, that'd be a pain for sure...I feel ya. This rainbow stamp is sick and needs to stay!

Yea this is what im concerned about. I've had this happen on two lat discs with these reflective type stamps. Think im going to go the plastic bag route on this one and play it safe. Seems that way does not affect these stamps at all.

Diabolicum mentioned that it may be dissolving because of there being alcohol in the shaving cream. Id like to do some further testing if I can find a can of no alcohol sc.

Ended up playing it safe and doing the bag dye technique to preserve the stamp...Came out pretty cool I think. Im gonna seal it off with a sweet spin job on the outside.
