*Disclaimer*: Acetone is on the list of known/suspsected carcinogens. Be very careful and health conscious and make sure this is done in a well-ventilated area. Also of note, Acetone will take the stamps off of discs.

I've found an improvement on the first dyeing method posted on this site. To mix the dye just use rit powdered dye and acetone. This dye sets a lot faster, is easier to work with, and is less grainy. Because it is less grainy it leaves a cleaner finish and doesn't leave colors looking sandy textured. It dyes almost immediately when it touches the plastic. The only disadvantage I found is that it bleeds through masking tape pretty badly. A method I found for making designs on the disc is to color the design with a clear crayon and then put the dye on, the dye wont bleed through the crayon wax so the waxy part will stay the original color. It works on all the champion/z plastic discs I tried as well as gateway evolution plastic and discraft x plastic. I didn't try KC/JK plastic but I'm pretty sure it dyes those as well.
