color question

If you were going to dye the planet earth onto a disc would you dip twice with green and blue? or dip twice yellow for the continents and then blue all over to make the continents green and the water blue? Or can you just start with a blue disc and dye yellow to make the continents green?

I'd be easier to start with a green disc and dye the blue onto it. If you are starting with white do the green first then the blue.

If I was trying the same dye, I'd do yellow and then blue. It'll be a crapshoot to see if you used enough yellow initially, but any amount will make the continents stand out from the ocean.

Or, I'd hand-paint in green continents after dyeing the oceans blue.

If clear, I'd dip the yellow first then blue. It may be best to re-mask the continents, dip in blue and then take of the re-masked continents and check them periodically (every minute or so) until you achieve the green you want.

FYI, I've had seriously bad luck trying to get green w/ green RIT. Only sweet shades of dead vegetation camo brown.

thanks for the input. I guess I should mention its my first dye, so simple would be best. Also I'm planning on doing a lightweight kite or stingray for my wife as a first disc, so star is the plan and clear isn't an option.

White will work well for this too (forgot to add that...)

In that case, I'd recommend sticking with one color. Nothing like biting off more than you can chew with a first attempt to sour you on the experience forever.
