Looks good. It really stylizes the picture having the spots with no dye.

You should go to signwarehouse.com and buy some Avery A4 Vinyl. It's cheap and so much easier to work with then contact paper and you can dye it multiple times and not worry. I did a three color dye the other day with no problems.

So I've had some time without the internet and that gave me some time to do a few. I've done complete polar opposites.
The first one is completely freehand on an x-out monarch.

The second was machine cut, ex sister in law wanted help setting up her new toy. Little did she know what she's gotten herself into now that I know she has it :twisted:

You've remained friends with your ex-sister in law?

That's pretty cool.

Ex-sister in law but current what and why ex? :wink:
Flat shots need running on the center line of the tee and planting each step on the center line. Anhyzer needs running from rear right to front left with the plant step hitting the ground to the left of the line you're running on. Hyzer is the mirror of that.

Ok I'll explain the loop.
My friend kyle dated this girl in high school. Hanging out with him I met that girls little sister and we hit it off. They get married and are together to this day, a year later me and little sis get married. Things went to shit(something about her or golf) and we divorced. Still friends with kyle and ex wifes sister.

See... I was thinking your brother married someone, and then they got divorced, but you were still friends with her. I hadn't thought of that situation.

I haven't been busy with the dyeing as of late, moving into a new place and all, but dammit I came back at full force.
I went a bit biblical on this dye, and it turned out tons better than expected.
I'm still debating if it's going to be thrown.

Just a quick idea of what I did.
In between each redip I rinsed off the disc and patted it dry.
I did my first cut to cover the dark outlines and the red tones of the picture, since that was where the most variety was at.
I wanted a brown outline so I started with purple, once it was mixed with the red and pink it turned brown.I dyed the outline till it was almost dark enough peeled part of the hair and did a quick dip in that.
Switched to my red dye peeled my apple and started dyeing that till it started to show some darkness, peeled the rest of the hair let that get about medium darkness. Peeled the flesh and and dipped it just long enough for it not to be white. Switched over to pink and gave it a slightly longer bath in that checking often till it was where I wanted it.
Then I stripped it cleaned the disc(keep in mind to let the dye sit for a bit so you don't smear anything) and recovered it in vinyl. Here's the point you have to be VERY careful if you want to use this method. I put the covered disc over my lightbox and carefully cut the green areas. Then I did three dips in green(leaves, snake, eyes) and stripped the disc cleaned and covered it again. Same method for the blue and I even left the back uncovered and did a full dip to give the disc a solid look. Make sure that you check for any bleed point along the edge of the disc onto the done art, it would suck monkey balls to get a bleed at that point.
