  • What makes dye go bad?

    I premixed the dye, and then use it, and return it back to the original container. Recently I anodized some parts, when I put them in the red dye
    and it wouldn't take, thinking it wasn't anodized, I stripped it an reanodized it, after rinsing and putting it in the red dye again it still wouldn't take, I had some blue dye warmed up and low and behold it dyed beautifully. What was wrong with the red dye, is there a certain
    timeframe in which it is good? I have red, electric blue, green, and violet.
    I have used all the colors, violet the most, with excellent results. What gives with the deep red dye?
