The Beatles - Abbey Road dye

Postby BennettUA » Sun Aug 02, 2009 3:58 pm

Dyed this for a friend. It's a heavily used Champion T-Rex, really his only driver, but he's an old friend and geeked on all my new dyes.

Four different shades of black, each shade a soak in dye mix for 3.5 minutes. Tough to weed this one; the Sharpie ink makes it tough to see where to cut, even with a magnifier. The clothes, posture, and movement of the gents came out well. The outside faces, George and John, came out good, but Paul looks like he descended from Easter Island, and Ringo has a severe case of facial elephantitis.

But I'm happy with it -- used disc, only about 4-5 hours into it, and a learner for an identical dye I'll do on a better disc and probably in full color. :D

Enjoy!
