In the meantime, gotta hone the skills right? Here's my latest!
both in my top 5, Autumn's Fury in my top 2 . what is Autumn's Fury on?

Wow, thanks for the kind words everybody! It sure made for a great morning to get up and see all of that and it means a lot to me, coming from you guys!

"Autumn's Fury" is a GL Halo. This one is a 9 layered dip, 2 shades of black, 3 red, 2 orange and 2 yellow (with some white remaining). I hand cut the stencil and dipped from darkest to lightest, cutting and peeling as I went. I used the same technique on the Phoenix I posted.

"Left the Remote In There..." is a First Run GL Mace. Other than the insides of the letters and outside of the doors (black dip) the entire disc is hand painted.

Nice work there, fantom! Cool images. Your contest entries were awesome.

Congrats again to everyone who entered this year. There were a lot of great discs.
I was going to share my entry here, but photobucket seems to be acting screwy for me right now. For anyone who hadn't guessed, my entry was Raven's Roost. The disc is a white 175 Star Katana.
It is all hand painted with no vinyl stencil used for outlines, but I did use some clear contact paper to mask the main subjects while I did the background. I started with a light grey outline of lots of acetone and a little black idye 'sketched' on with a bamboo skewer. Once it was laid out I covered the disc in contact paper and cut out the sky. Orange is a mix of rit tangerine, lemon yellow and some idye red mixed with acetone and applied with an airbrush. Next I remasked the sky and exposed the bottom half. That is a mix of idye blue and red plus some black with acetone done mostly with a brush and cotton balls. I then unmasked the skull and raven and sharpened outlines with a little stronger mix of black (paint brushes and skewers). A little toning of the skull with some yellow/tan was followed by various shades of light blue throughout the raven. Grey shading on both followed by all the brushwork detailing that went into the wings.
It really does look better in person (for now). I'm pleased with how it came out and now am wishing I would have done it on GL rather than star plastic so the image would stay crisp for a few extra months before the inevitable blur.
For now the disc remains in the freezer to slow the process. I don't throw katanas so it is available for sale or trade.
Glad to be part of this awesome contest/site/addiction/hobby. Learned all I know here and hope that I'm able to teach a little along the way as well.

^^Brian, that's the one I voted on so quickly, I hadn't read that I could vote for three. Brilliant color (I LOVE that sky), and of course the artistic talent is off the charts. Congrats on your 'win place or show' finish!

Who You Callin Sweetheart?

Hey all,

I want to say thank you to everyone that participated and voted in the Okthrowberfest dye competition. I was not expecting to even place this year so I'm still completely shocked to have won. I had a great time participating in the competition and want to sincerely thank Bennett for hosting the tourney. For those of you who didn't see my entry, I have posted that along with a disc I just finished last night. Thanks again everyone for your support. If you have any questions about my dye job, I would be happy to answer.

DTP, that Raven was completely next level. I can't believe how detailed that is, all the way down to the details on the bird's foot. Thanks for sharing your methods with us, although I doubt anyone can do anything remotely close to your artistry.

Great job this year guys! I started dyeing around 9 months ago, so this was my first Okthrowberfest. I will definitely be participating next year, hopefully with 2 dyes!

My dye was predominantly dip-dyed, with marbling in the sky, and a little painting for the shading. I hand-cut the black and colored portions of the dye, and did a lot of masking and remasking with the contact paper I am using. I've only used contact paper (that's all Walmart had), but I've come to like it. I like how it is see-through, and I am diligent with my smoothing, so I don't have any trouble with bleeding.

I used the shaving cream method for the sky, which came out pretty blue. I did some quick dips in black to darken the blue sky, but it ended up coming out a little too dark for my liking. It essentially eliminated the clouds I created with the marbling. The shading within the horse, clothes, moon, and cobblestone was painted on with shaving cream mixed with my diluted dye I use for dipping (that's all I have). This might have been the most tedious part of the dye, as it took multiple coats to get even the faintest of shading. That is most likely due to the fact that all the dye I have has already been dissolved in water, weakening its dyeing power when painting. In the future, I will be purchasing more iDye so that I can mix it with the detergent to use for painting on with more detail.

This was an awesome contest, and I'm already thinking of ideas for next year! Thanks to everyone who voted for me! I still can't believe I edged out DyeingToPlay for 2nd, as I feel that his dye was definitely more deserving.
