Before---After

Postby ChUcK » Fri Oct 03, 2008 11:02 am

Somebody mentioned the desire to see some before/after shots of dyes, and I completely forgot about it, but here be a thread to post some shots of dyes that were brand new, shiny, and beautiful, next to a picture of how the dye looks now.

Sort-of like a "Where are they Now?" show about the original cast of whatever crappy 60's TV show.

Here's my FLX Buzzz, with the before and after on the same disc. You can see the original dye was smaller, and is almost impossible to see when contrasted with a fresh application of RIT.

The old Boognish has traversed through the plastic so much that not only is it visible on the bottom, but it's darker as well.

So let's see some other before/after shots!

I may have posted this somewhere else, but here's another example.

The darker color is dipped black, the lighter color is dipped teal, and I tried to brush on acetone'd yellow to no avail. One of my buddies just found and brought this one back from Crystal Mountain, the dye is about 2 years old now, on a candy proline firebird-

The pictures weren't taken under similar lighting conditions, but the amount of blurr is obvious. Being mostly clear champ plastic, you can still see the dye that has spread below the surface of the disc, so it appears that it hasn't "faded" ttoo much. This is one of the first dyes I ever did, with craft store contact paper and acetone'd black RIT drizzled on in an attempt at artsy, but achieved crappy.

Edit: I forgot to add that this disc spent nearly a year and a half at the bottom of a lake. Viva la Trojan.

I didnt think you could dye JK Pro plastic? How long did it survive before turning out like that?

Well, the JK Aviar was dyed with black RIT, and that's as dark as it could get. It dyes, but not very well. It didn't take too long to start looking crappy, but I don't really have an actual time reference... a month, maybe?
