I see all these beautiful dyes but most of them are made with plotters.
Now I don't have a plotter, so all my dyes are done by hand.
And let me tell that it is hard to cut a straight line but I am just trying.
Here is my latest design.
What do you think?


I also started to experiement with glue instead of stickers.
Be creative!

Not bad. I'd like to see it more centered, but the lines are pretty good.

If you got to an art store or something you can get a metal ruler and use that along with your x-acto knife and make perfectly straight lines.

Thanks for the advice.
The hardest part was to put those pieces in the right place. you can see that the bottom right one is a little bit to much to the inside and yes, it should have been in the centre more.
I'll try that next time.

On another note: I started to work with glue. this gives me nice lines to write stuff.
Not straight but it just looks cool...

it looks better in the daylight but this is just to show you what you can do with glue....
I actually started doing that but I use just normal tape.

about the glue...I don't live in the states, so I don't know what elmers glue is.
this is just your normal universal glue.
True about the graffiti but I also made it look that way....

I saw that you also made some fine pieces...love the ones with those letters. That looks like a lot of work if it was all hand cut....or do you have a special trick to do this?

What do you think Gwillim...can I have bragging rights on working with glue or what? hahaha
no plotter used on any of my dyes. check them out on my page

cut all mine my by too. if you use a plotter its more like photo copy'n than art. long live the artists!
Long live the artists indeed, but I don't think hand cutting is much of an art form. I think people who actually do their own artwork are artist regardless of how they cut vinyl...
I do all my cutting by hand for better or worse.
