Yet another dye-rookie

Postby Shaolintrained » Wed Dec 10, 2008 2:24 pm

So here's a handful of the discs that I've dyed. Been doing it for about 2 weeks, gotta start doing more as soon as I get some better vinyl. By the way, they are all done on used discs so they look pretty gnarly. They are shown from first attempt to most recent:

This is a champ Boss with some bleeding

Champ Orc with Che

STAR XCal, the stamp left a red tint to the background
Image

I really wish I didn't rush this Champ Coyote the REAL looks pretty bad
Image

I'm pretty fond of this STAR Gator...I call it "Unplanned Parenthood" (no offense)
Image

And this is my most recent on a Monarch with the back dyed red (it's a roller)
Image

If you've got any advice...please, let me hear it.

No advice, but I dig the Radiohead bear.

Thanks, unfortunately as my first dye ever, it bleed. I'm going to do another one soon, but with some freehand art in the eyes, ears and mouth.

Here's another one I did tonight. I like it, it's nice and classy. Monroe with a Flying-V on a STAR MAX.

The red tint on the background of the Star Xcal could've been from improper washing... I think.

They came out good, you should be happy! The Marley one is my favorite!

Marylin looks good, dude! I'm always a sucker for boobs on plastic.

...definitely. Try the method I use, where you just rub the stamp once over with pressure, then do a little mop-up after the first pass. I haven't had any stamp removal issues since figuring that one out, and they come right off quickly.

Awesome, thanks fellas. This is exactly the advice that I'm looking for. Feel free to criticize.

Good job dude. I really like the monroe disc, and the one you use as a roller. I had a cool idea for my TL, I want to make a funky robot stencil and call it "the rollbot". It's pretty cheesy but it would be fun.

I have a file of stencils that I've saved from google and stuff. If you want me to share them with you I probably have about 50 saved. Just pm me with your email and I'll send the folder.

Okay, here's another one I did tonight. I haven't had much time to do any and this was really rushed and simple.

Did another one today, haven't had much time to put into them, but hopefully I'll start to impress myself soon
