This is more of a thank you to all those who have contributed tutorials, tips and tricks that helped me make my first attempt. The dye is nothing amazing, but there were no runs or bubbles or any other imperfections unless you count it being slightly off center, and my freehand font being pretty awful to look at.
I got some latex from a signmaker in town and tried it out. Took less than an hour start to finish and I was impressed with how much easier it was than I expected. I look forward to working on my next more difficult dye now that I have a better idea of what to expect.
Thanks again to all!
