This was the third image I tried when I first got my plotter... The photo doesn't do it much justice and it was dyed on a used/beat disc, the effect was much better in person.



Believe it or not, that is Royal Blue on a really stiff dx-like glow disc (I don't remember which mold). 5 minutes for the light blue, 15 minutes for the dark.

I do all my cutting by hand so I keep the designs pretty simple. Here are the ones I am doing this weekend. Along with trying the shaving cream technique

Have fun with leopard one I did almost that exact one. But I went with a different leopard one that I googled.

I've seen this concept done before, and I've probably spent about a year trying to figure out how to best render my own custom loxodromes. At last! I have figured it out.


I'll likely start off by attempting a single loxodrome on a disc. I'm a little uncertain how I'll go about dyeing the gradient portions though... Perhaps either do a bunch of consecutive short dips, like I did with the Marley and Garcia portraits, or reattempt the brush-on method (which I've tried once before, but found to be a little too finicky for my liking)... Otherwise, maybe I'll somehow devise a way to utilize something like MOON's gradient tool??? Not sure how that'd work though because of the overlapping gradients of the foreground and background spirals... Maybe remask between two dips running in opposite directions? Who knows...

With any success, it'll be fun incorporating some of these into future projects.
