First timer dyes, three of them.

Postby Salkku » Wed Sep 16, 2009 4:55 am

I've been reading these forums for a while now and finally got my account so it's time to post what I managed to make myself.

I live in Finland so I had to order RIT dyes from England but that wasnt too much of an obstacle. All dyes are done freehand with normal x-acto knife.

My first dye, just a test how it happens, pretty happy with the outcome

My second dye, just had to make that after reading the book. I was planning to do that right away but decided to test the dye process. I'm extremely happy how Feynman looks, and I noticed how hard it is to do the letters without 360 x-acto knife. That's a Pro Valkyrie

My Star Wraith. Just looks evil and flies like it too.

I'll upload couple discs that that girlfriend dyed when I get home from work.

That guy in second disk is Richard Feynman, one of the greatest minds of 20th century, won nobel prize in physics and I recommend that everyone should read two book "Surely You're Joking, Mr. Feynman!" and "What Do You Care What Other People Think?" first time a book has made me think that many real things and that with me laughing and thinking how to pick a lock. Anyhow, I promissed to show what my girlfriend made.

Tervetuloa parhaaseen fribamestaan netissä.

Hope there aren't too many zombies around your neck of Finland, love the Simon Pegg pic :-D
Flat shots need running on the center line of the tee and planting each step on the center line. Anhyzer needs running from rear right to front left with the plant step hitting the ground to the left of the line you're running on. Hyzer is the mirror of that.
