Watch it, then Do It!
If you’re anything like me, you can read all of the step-by-step break downs you want, it’ll never compare to getting a chance at seeing it done. I remember how stoked I was to find my first disc dyeing tutorial video a couple of years ago…they weren’t easy to find back then. No excuses now! We’ve recorded and organized over 100 Disc Dyeing Tutorials and Live Streams here for you to fix that problem. All of them categorized and pictured below to help walk you through everything you need to know to Do It yourself!
From Spin Dyeing, to Stenciling, to any kind of Background Technique you can image, we’ve got you covered multiple times over. Just find the technique you’re looking to learn or brush up on and click through the drop downs in that section. Clicking any picture will take you right to the front row of the TDIDI Disc Dye Classroom for your lesson in Doing It. Homework assignment is always the same, you’ve watched it…now go Do It!

So many different ways to pretty up your plastic! In this section we’ll cover the background dyeing techniques that bring some real color and cool designs to the disc.
