Lightbulb Noobie Dye Question Thread

Use this to ask your "noobie" dye questions instead of making an entire thread for just one question about dying in general.

The red should show up just fine, might have to go a little longer than usual, but it'll be fine to take the red.

xJFK,

cover the entire disc in clear contact paper/vinyl after your first dye (assuming you have taken off the old vinyl and just have bear disc again) and then cut on the disc the area you wish to dye next. Repeat for any other colors.

You can also cut a piece of vinyl big enough to cover the area you want to remask if you don't want to use a new sheet for every colour

How do you convert a regular photo (say, of a face) to an image ready for disc?

Does a plotter actually cut the stencil for you? or does it just print it onto the vinyl??

You could always photoshop it to display the image using only 2 colors (like a solid black stencil with white in the lighter areas) or 3 or 4 colors if you were doing a multiple layer dye... then again this is .02 from a guy that cant dye very well
