mmmm, Tbird on a Tbird. That one came out nice and clean, after fixing the shoulder.

I was unsure about how the vinyl stretched near the right side of the disc, but it was laying flat, so I dipped it anyways. After a minute I chickened out and pulled the disc to check on it, and sure enough the vinyl was pulling away, so I emergency rinsed and let the disc and vinyl set for a couple of days.

(You'll like this next part, Acidbath) Then, I *gasp* cut directly onto the disc, a big ChUcK no-no, to enlarge the right shoulder and get rid of the part that was giving up. No bleeds!

Come to think of it, I never looked to see if there was a cut mark on the disc. Is there one, Mark?

The Tick dye looked insane. Even with a spill on it it looks good.

some sweet dyes! You guys are making it look really tempting :P

Good thing I have no artistic talent so it's easy to resist doing my own.

I love that T-bird design.

I wonder what discs these are dyed upon...8)
I think Eric's ultimate dream is to see these discs rolling across the field, one after the other. Perhaps the Coyote could roll off a cliff, landing in a puff of dust.

Unfortunately, the RR had a couple of bleeds, one on the tip of his tail and the other on his right ankle.

Forgot to add this one- it seems silly to try to make a 3-dimensional object appear to be "more 3-dimensional", but it worked out. When happening upon this disc in the grass, it takes a second or third glance to "see" the entire disc.

Nice to see you were given back permission to dye discs, ChUcK.

Well, I did these in someone else's backyard. I don't think permission shall ever be re-granted to dissolve RIT inside my house. It was nice to see discs floating upside down in the tar pits once again!

When the disc isn't being held up to a light, the stamp is still vibrant and silvery, if a bit worn from use. But you're not here to look at the stamp, so I silhouetted it.



I'd kill a man for an eagle like that! All of your dyes are great, but the eagle and 3-d are my favorites. You're very talented.

I'd like to see how the kitchen turned out too :twisted:
