I've always used Duplicolor Vinyl and plastic dye. You have to use the adhesive promotor to make it stick.

SEM's is the only thing I would use, the Dupli-color stuff is fair at best. I have tried dupli-color twice and will never use it again. Too much gloss, doesn't cure out(stays soft), and blisters and bubbles in direct sun light.

Not a problem. Just don't want to see some one spend their money twice.

X3 on the SEM line of dyes. Just wear gloves. If you get it on your skin, it aint coming off until it is ready. And it has th most unique smell.

You ain't kiddin about it not coming off your skin. lol
And they have 99% of the factory colors, unlike the limited color choice of dupli-color.

Honestly I've never used SEM. Color has never been a priority of mine because I'm color blind. So in my case ignorance is bliss.. It does sound like a good product though.
