    send me a pic of the disc, or a link to a pic so I can see exactly what you are thinking.

    As far as my brushing on technique, I just mix a smaller batch of Rit, and using a paintbrush to apply it. If the design has a lot of black lines seperating the ares i want covered, I paint as close to the black line as I can. Trying not to cross over the line into the area that I want a diff color. sometimes hard to do, so some cross bleeding may occur.

    If I am brushing on two different colors, not seperated by a black line, I brush on the darkest color first. when i dye the lighter color next to it, I still paint carefully as close as i can to the darker color, trying not to cross into the area.

    I have no exact water to Rit ratio, but basically the thicker the mixture, the easier it is to control it and keep it within the lines.
    All I want for Christmas is Sharpies and Rit Dye!!!!

        • yeah. I just thought I would tease people with an image of whats to come, but I think waiting for the final project will be better, and well worth the wait

          • finished salmon dye


            I liked it better before the background. I think maybe the blue is too dark. Whatever, I still like it. I'm gonna have to do another and leave the bg out though, I think.

                Quality work, nonetheless. I agree with you - I think the bg makes the whole think look a little cluttered.

                You mentioned that you applied the bg by remasking the disc. Did you cut the bg on the disc, or did you pre cut it and have to line it up?

                  Pre-cut, line-up. It wasn't too difficult.

                        Yes, really. I don't know, it was a pretty quick procedure, maybe I'm just super awesome or something?

                        • Without further ado, I proudly present:

                          many, many hours, and 9 colors of dye. Only a few small mistakes.

                          I hope you all enjoy. I know I do

                          • Impressive. How many colors did you brush on vs. dunk?

                              • i dip dyed the black and blue. the other 7 colors were brushed on. I would have had a slightly better result if I did some remasking when i brushed on 2 colored areas next to each other, but i decided to risk it and do it with precision instead
