recent dye

Postby twmccoy » Sat Dec 20, 2008 12:00 am

Here's one I just did this week.

Nothing seriously fancy. It is a champion boss.
First pic is the cutout of the contact paper. I used vaseline around the edges of the contact paper and then peeled it off and brushed the dye on. Once it has time to bleed a little it will look really good. The dye is much darker than it appears in this pic. The flash must have hit it.

Did you put the vaseline on the disc surface? Did it block the dye from hitting the disc? Leaving the contact paper portions "available" for dyeing?

More details please!!!

I put the vaseline on the disc and over the contact paper design. I then peeled off the contact paper which left the vaseline lines. You have to do it carefully so you don't smear the vaseline around. The vaseline makes a good line and the dye won't go through it.

Why not just cut the design in reverse order?
I bet the Vas is a bitch to remove.

Nah, it really wasn't that hard. The contact paper bleeds too much when you use acetone on it.

Here's a disc I did a while back using the same method.

what did you use to brush on the black? rit+water or rit+acetone? that's the part that I'm interested in...

The black is rit + acetone done with a brush. I just dyed the red first and put the black right on top of it.

I might add that this disc took the black and red dye very well. Some discs don't dye this nicely.
