So this was tonight's effort. Another image from Ninja Scroll, this time of Tessai, the Rock Demon. Main goal was to cut the vinyl, dip, and see if the dip would penetrate the cuts to create the rock effect seen in the source image. Results were mixed, some cuts took the dye, some didn't ... primarily because there wasn't enough space in between the vinyl.
The source material
Vinyl on disc, weeded for first dip, all cuts have been made
First dip done, weeding for the second black dip for shading
The finished product (sort of)

The real finished product. Added the rock lines using an xacto blade and a mixture of black, acetone, and Rit. Went on black, never dried, decided to nuke it, turned purple-brown. Got desire effect, but not great. Then added red eye color using scarlet rit and acetone mixture. brushed on using a q-tip and a brush. Fairly happy with the effect/result.
Rechecked my dye-acetone mixes from yesterday, and everything tested out great on my white frankendisc except the black. Easy enough to dip black, but would really love to know how to paint black without the color washing off to purple-brown.
BTW - the band is Hot Water Music out of Florida...
