Hey everyone... I am new to dyeing and am trying to learn new techniques. Let me know what you think... these are in order from oldest to newest, top to bottom.

This is my first one. Gateway Spirit (Peach-Clear Evolution)

The Deathly Hallows!! Gateway Wizard (Orange-Clear Evolution)

Iron Man! Innova Sidewinder (Champion)

Ugh... so many things went wrong with this one. I had glue around the edges to add a little bit of a tie dye effect, but this is the older version of Gatway's Evolution plastic, not the HPP stuff used in my first two dyes. It wouldn't take the dye readily so i cranked up the heat... which melted the glue. Also, I forgot to peel a piece of masking under the N.

Now here is another "old" evolution plastic... but it took the dye just fine. It was actually an X-Out Gateway Wizard. There were several phases to this... first the black, red, orange for the mushroom, remask the mushroom, glue around the mushroom, blue. I should have stopped after the blue, but then I decided to do yellow-orange after peeling the glue off... meh... the yellow orange bunched to the bottom right of the mushroom leaving "freckles"


Another X-Out, this one is a Gateway Voodoo. I really do like Gateway's EHPP plastic for dyeing. Anyways the original plan was to dye the background black and to mask the X-Wing. But when i tried to use masking tape to transfer the little islands, it was a mess... I had to do a lot of patchwork to save the stencil, but in the end i think it worked out.

I really like seein people trying different techniques to add different textures to discs! I did a similar technique with my gears of war disc!
i just dipped a tooth brush in red and flicked it in the same way you'd use a spoon to fling mashed potatoes at your little sister. my wife said she would have done it differently to get more of a drippy look, she said that would look more real... i think it looks better the way i did it. but it got me thinking what if i had leaned the disc against something instead of laying (lying?) it flat, would that have been enough to get a splatter and drip. something to try some other time.
I think that could be a cool effect as well I think! I use lots of different things from brushes, cotton swabs, sponges, glue, and different consistencies of dye. I like tryin to mimic a texture that I see, old paper / concrete (which looks more like a marble) are some that i've done so far
