Gradient tool

I’ve had this in my pocket for to long guess it’s time to share . This gradient tool rocks but need constant supervision and I always run a test or two first. The mix was something like three packets of rit to 8 two liters bottles of H2o, I suppose that would be 16 liters. Your mix would depend on the bucket you use and how much it holds. good luck!

For the life of me I can not figure out what in the world you would do with that.

I'm guessing that it drips dye into the bottom bucket and you start with a richer color that gradually changes to a paler color.

I'm only guessing. This could really be the work of a madman.

IMG_6797.jpgAn image gradient is a directional change in the intensity or color in an image. Pretty simple really you just put the disc in the top bucket full of dye and let it run out. This will leave your disc dyed darker on one side. Here are some examples of it use.

As simple as that may look, the idea and design are excellent! I commend you(again)Moon for your above-and-beyond mentality. I always thought this was airbrushing on the satelite disc! ((Bows humbly))
