Going back over a dye...

Postby malinkie » Thu Feb 05, 2009 12:07 pm

I am in the middle of a 'Speedy Gonzales' dye on a yellow roadrunner. First i did the black outline, then the brown fur. Finally i uncovered the hat and all of outside the design so that i could darken the yellow to make his clothes 'look' white (thanks for the tip chuck ;)). Now i have ran into an issue...

The sash round his neck, inside the mouth and inner ear are all shades of red. Do i just cover up the disc completely and cut round the new areas i want dyed? Is there some other way?

This disc is old and does not seem to want to take the dye easily so i dont know if painting it on is such a good idea.

Thoughts...

You could paint what you don't want dyed in Vaseline and then peel the tie area. I haven't tried that method of masking, but I hear it works.
