Blast from the past

Postby ChUcK » Wed Oct 07, 2009 9:21 am

I was looking through my dye pics the other day and found one that always makes me smile, thought I'd share it with you guys. In the picture, the Bic isn't actually lit, I'm just holding down the button. This was during the height of my airbrushing days, and cool color shades like these were a snap to make. This disc would have been the absolute best if I hadn't puddled the dye on Spike's hand, or at the very tip of his cigarette.

Here's another airbrushed Spike I did, with a little different coloring method:

Those were the days. Spending my time at work airbrushing discs instead of monitoring the multi-million dollar biodioesel plant I was in charge of.

Thats sweet man! Did you airbrush regular dye on the disc? Ive been wanting to get an airbrush for a while now. I was just at Harbor Freight today and they had some pretty cheap air brush kits. I almost brought one home.

I used a mixture of rit and acetone, and filtered the mixture through coffee strainers to get the chunkies out that didn't dissolve in the boiling/decanting. It was pretty thin for airbrushing, but if I was careful the acetone wouldn't pool before it dried.
