Hi,
Pinata is a solvent-based dye. Here is a link to the instruction for using Pinata colors as a paint [url]http://jacquard.tempdomainname.com/products/pinata/[/url]
Please let me know if you intend to melt the plastic and then add a colorant to the molten mixture. Generally solvent and disperse dyes are used to dye plastic when it is in it’s molten form. However I am not sure if Pinata color can be used for that application as it may contain some H[SIZE=1]2[/SIZE]O. I will double check and get back to you.

What I'm wanting to do is to Paint/Dye Plastic "Disc" used in playing Disc Golf or Frisbee Golf as some call it. These Disc are about 10" in size, and come in different grades of plastic, some more transparent than others. Mainly to jazz up the Disc for fund raising projects. Below are a couple examples:

[url="http://www.discfly.com/search.aspx"]http://www.discfly.com/search.aspx[/url] (Search dye)

Can you provide an on-line source for the Pinata product.. There are no stores in my area...

Thanks for your help Celia!

Hi,
Follow the instructions for painting in my last message. You may also wish to try Lumiere and neopque. Here are the links for those products.
