Thought I'd start my own gallery thread and not dirty up someone else's. I'll try and post some pics of some of my first dyes, but since it's 2am here I'm gonna just start with the one I finished tonight. This was my first attempt and multiple methods of dying. I dipped, I brushed, I used multiple layers, and it took forever.....
Now if I could go back and start over I would not have dyed the background black, I thought it would make the character stand out more but it ended up dulling some of the work I did, a white background would have made the colors look more vibrant. Lesson learned. I also rushed some vinyl removal areas, but unless you study it, you probably wouldn't notice. Oh, and yes, I know the pants look a little pink, that's also caused by a lack of patience, where I should have waited and went and bought a brown dye, instead of mixing scarlett and dark green. All in all, I think it took me about 3 hours from start to finish, while watching Lost, Jimmy Kimmel, etc. My next art attempt will be less than half of that time!
Oh, and I'm also taking requests! Purchase any Discraft, Innova, or DGA disc from me, specifying color and weight. Then either send me some artwork or tell me what you're looking for. I'll send you a proof for your approval then dye your new disc. Here's the cool part, if you aren't satisfied with the dye, I'll refund 50% of what you paid for the disc (not shipping). So you'll still have a new disc. If for some reason the disc get's damaged I will do a 100% refund.
Please note: I will not attempt to dye DX plastic, or any color darker than blue. It's pointless, they don't turn out. The best plastics are the mid-priced and high priced for all brands.
Here are disc prices:
INNOVA Champion $14 Star $15 Pro $11
Discraft Z $14 X-plastic $11
D.G.A. Pro line $14 (Stamp not removable)
