      How do you take a good pic of a glow disc? I dyed a Glo Valk, but I can't get a good pic of it glowing. My camera's a pretty good one...

          For the one in the picture I took balls of Saran Wrap and put them on the surface of the disc. I then wrapped the whole thing up with Saran Wrap. I then poked small holes in the outer layer of saran wrap ( this allows dye to seep in.) I then heated my dye up as normal. I use a deeper lidded skillet for this method because it holds more dye. I then float my disc like normal. I have to use the deeper pan and more dye to keep my Saran Wrap from touching bottom and melting. I then let it sit for about 15-20 minutes. This method gets the truest color for me. It wastes a little bit of dye and I use rubber surgical gloves and wring out the the saran wrap quite a bit to get any trapped dye out.

            I had a friend with a pretty decent camera, take the picture from a tripod. That picture was actually taken outside during a glow tournament. I borrowed a portable black light and got the disc glowing pretty good then we snapped the picture.

            • So a blacklight makes it glow brighter than a regular light?

                Short answer is yes... you could also try a longer exposure time (like 1 second), larger aperture setting, or both. You could also try using a faster ISO (ASA).
