Here are my first few dyes. Thanks again for all the info here. Totally addicted. Oh and I lost the lion head on the right after playing my first round with it and scoring a -3. No name on it so someone inherited a sweet xcaliber.

You think you could post your technique for photographing champ plastic dyes? I mean, those are obviously really nice to begin with, but the pic method you have makes them look out of this world.

I have a glass desk and then I just filter the light underneath with a piece of paper. I will only dye champion plastic as I love the swirls and color changing properties when exposed to light.

Well done man, I like the sizing of the dyes too. Great stuff, especially to start. I imagine you're using a plotter? If so, which? If not, I bow to your gift. :mrgreen:

Thanks but if you saw them up close you would know they are hand cut. I find my skills are better some days then others and depending on the coffee intake.

Clean lines versus messy lines really aren't a good way to judge hand-cut vs plotter. You can scan a preschooler's drawing of a space ship, vectorize it, and plotter it and it still looks like a preschool drawing. Also, you can hand-cut a stencil so precisely that it looks plottered. All we have is what we tell each other.

But yeah, assuming these were digitally drawn images you expect them to be essentially symmetrical and 'perfect' and if you look closely, there are some minor cutting inconsistencies that usually mean a human was involved.

As far as I'm concerned the ends justify the means, but it's nice to see manual xacto-ing kept alive.
