I swear I can notice the blurring that occurs in like 3 days. This is why I wanted to compare a bunch and try to find what holds up best. DTP already showed us that if you keep a dye frozen, it won't blur or fade at all. But without doing that, all dyes blur and fade to some degree.

But the Clutch one I think is mostly done - it's looked the same since about the 1.5 year mark. I have no evidence, but I think the blurring and fading is somewhat like an inverse-exponential - it gets slower and slower until it kind of hits a wall and stops to change much - eventually the dye spreads as far as it ever will.

Here's one more, but a less complicated one.

This one is from 2-2016, so 27 months old, and I use the disc constantly. It also seems to be done with blurring and fading, and still looks good to me. I actually made Brock intentionally too dark when I did the dye, to anticipate the fading.

The compare looks very different, but you don't really notice since it takes like a year or more to gradually change.

And here's one more to support my idea that Champ is actually the best plastic for dyeing, in terms of fading and blurring the least.

It makes sense to me - champ is harder to dye because the plastic is less porous. Which also means the rate that the dye seeps through the plastic over time is less.

This one is just under 4 years old - it was the first multi layer stencil dye I ever did.

Eh, while it def faded and blurred more than I want (i.e. at all), I'm glad (and sort of surprised) that the thin little grid lines, and the stars and other really small things didn't blur out of existence.

I'm hijacking this thread for one more comp.

Here's my (still) favorite one I have ever done: Squiddy. 18 months old.

This is one that I like better now. The bleed on the center in his eye has faded out of existence, and the background has blurred to a very smooth transition, whereas at first you could see all the lines of different shades in the background.
