Probably leaving it in too long or it is older dye. It also depends on the color of the disc. Clear discs usually project more of a purplish color out of the blue as seen in the first dye below. On a white disc though it came out perfect in my lions logo. I've just learned to really watch the royal blue to make sure I'm getting the right color out of it.

The lions logo above was a white star. Is it old dye? How long are you leaving it in for?

I just bought the dye on monday. I kept checking the disc every once in a while and it just had a purple hue the whole time I just figured it would come out more blue.

In the pot it will look really dark and almost purple. Like I said above I keep a real close eye on Royal blue. Usually 5-10 mins at most will give you the best color as long as you have it at the right temp.

Well its not at all that dark after 5-10 minutes. So sounds like that would be not enough dye?
