Default First attempt with a Star Destroyer

Picked up some supplies for the first time (pro chem starter set and a Rit Dye More graphite for a darker contrast color). Did a glue bed dye test with my bright yellow Star Destroyers. I'm happy with how it turned out as a first test. I do wish I had brought more of the green in from the bottom since it turned a really nice teal color.



How do you go about knowing how a dye will work with a color plastic? Is it trial and error or is there an easier way to know?

Secondary question, whats the best light to take a picture of a disc? In different lights these colors really look different.

Really nice disc! Was it yellow to start? That’s the worst color to dye. The very best resource is https://www.thedifferenceisdoingit.com/resources/ in one of his videos he talks about yellow being the worst, and shows a disc where he dyed a pie chart of colors. They were all shades of brown and green. Since I’ve started dabbling with dyes, I have yet to find a white disc that I want.

I know what you mean about the pictures not telling the whole story. Best to take a few pics until one looked like the disc in person.

It was. It was like a bright yellow. I knew going in this would do something with color but I wasn't entirely sure what. I had recently purchased 4 factory seconds from the Innova store to dye, and of course two of them are a different shades of a yellow green. So this test at least gave me an idea of what I could be looking at. Thanks for the resource link.
