I am a very crafty person and I get nothing from my dying but clear plexi. What am I doing wrong. I am using Tulip dyes and wonder should I be using Rit dye? I was so excited and now I am not. Please help me. Yours were beautiful by the way.
i used the rit dyes when dying the pleix, i also added a tiny drop of dish soap to the pot of dye and water.

Wow, I love the mixture of the plexi with the shrinky. I need to try this.... all I need is the patience to score the plexi that much before I attempt to break it.
D'oh!  Sad

So i just tried this and had mixed results. The first batch of yellow ones turned out bright and the second batch of pink ones didn't take the dye at all. The only thing i can think of that i did differently was soak the yellow ones in the dye mixture for some amount of time before boiling them.

Has anyone else had odd results with this technique?
