That's a great compliment...especially considering the source.
Well, recently I have gotten pretty lazy on the dye work and have just started masking the disc with clear vinyl and then cutting the pattern on the disc. I some ways (if I am careful, this is much quicker). Anyway, the thin lines are single cuts with the exacto blade, then before I dip it in the rit, I bend the disc slightly, with my thumbs on top of the flight plate, and the rest of my fingers below. This separates the vinyl just a touch and I have found it will give you super fine lines. Like all of this, it has just been a process of practicing. Generally, I have only used this for small details, but this is the first time I have really done it on a larger scale.
