Full set, blades dyes (9)

Postby BennettUA » Sat Mar 13, 2010 12:40 pm

Complete set by order, misc. discs and plastics.

I really enjoyed dyeing this set. Everything came out great(one minor error, the dye wicked onto the center plate of the red-on-pink Wraith).

The "sharper" blade design is on Pro Wraiths(5). The others are Champion plastic.

nice work, what type of masking material did you use? How long did you leave your disc in the dye? I like the rich bold colors! keep it up!

3M sign vinyl, left each disc in as long as they needed -- usually a total of about 20 mins in dye after periodic rinses. Thanks for the compliments!

Nor are poor spelling skills.

I think you misunderstand the nature of this thread.

Now I see what you meant.

Eh, Huk Lab's tri-fly isn't all that original either. People have been designing stuff like that since the invention of the triangle.

I disagree. Your post actually has an important point.

Zombie, Do you dye? I believe most of us posting on this forum dye discs because we enjoy the process. Even a relatively simple design and dye like these slick looking blade dyes take a fairly significant amount of time to prepare and dye. Even with a plotter there is the time used to prepare the image digitally. Bennet posted at the beginning of this thread that these were done by request. So likely he didn't pick the design. Either way, with very few exceptions, there is very little originality in most of the stuff getting dyed here. Most of it is rip offs from someone else. That has little to do with the quality of the work done. We aren't in it for the money, or fame or any other reason than simply the fun of doing it. These are nice quality dyes with vibrant colors and clean lines. Originality be damned. Nice work Bennet!

It does have an important point, and one we never really discuss in depth.

The important point was just wrapped poorly, like those ridiculous "package bombs" they show in airport security ads that savvy/paranoid travelers are supposed to keep an eye out for. You know, they have wires sticking out, grease stains, excessive postage, audible ticking sounds, duct tape, and the return address is for someone Bin Laden.

Opinions are fine, but remember to back them up. A poorly worded opinion is just a stupid statement. At OP, those blades are sick, and I bet they look great sitting next to each other.
