Does everyone follow the tutorial on here by acidbath?, if not, how do you do it? as far as transferring the cut out image from the paper to the disc, how does everyone do this? when i try to transfer it, i cannot get straight exact lines. thanks

When you figure out how to get straight exact lines, let me know! You just have to pick images that will look ok if you fudge the lines a little. Stay away from circles and lettering. Your hand will get steadier as you practice.

When I am done cutting out my stencil I apply blue painters tape over the stencil. Then turn it over and take off the backing from the contact paper. Apply the stencil to your disc and pull of the blue tape and bada bing your stencil is good to go. Word of catuion, take your time taking off the tape so you don't tar your stencil.

No way, man. Hit up any and all of the art you like, curves and letters be damned, and just get better at making curves look good, at making text look like it belongs. Absolutely true, though, your hand will get steadier and more precise the more you cut.

I didnt mean stay away from them all together. I meant as you are starting out stick with a little simpler designs.

I've actually had good luck cutting out complicated images. I just go slow and make sure I have a sharp xacto blade. I also cut out the images and then stick them to the disc before dyeing.

I agree with ChUcK, you have to cut circles to get better at circles.
Here's one of my early dyes that I did for my wife.
