holy balls, bigman.

that's ridiculous.

i'mma file that bamboo tip away for later; i have to do another dye with feathering and that sort of shading since i lost the original disc it was on. this time it'll probably turn out better if i do that instead of trying to cut out the little lines.

edit -

bigman, what do you paint with when you do your details? detergent or acetone?

Acetone for all that shading stuff. If I want to fill an area with a flat color/black I use detergent.

I would love to read a tutorial on the painting technique DTP & the rest of the guild members are using. I can never seem to get a consistent mix of dye, detergent, acetone/alcohol, etc, and can only assume I'm mixing incorrectly. I also know DTP uses acetone to 'remove' some dye for shading purposes - cotton swab, q-tip, do you let the dye soak in, then rinse, then remove, etc?

You guys are getting some absolutely awesome colors & detail, and I just don't feel I'm getting the same results...not that it's keeping me from trying!

FWIW....'remove' may be a bit strong. Anyone who has experimented with acetone painting knows that it sets almost instantly. That being said, when I am painting I always keep clean acetone, q tips and cotton balls handy. Great for picking up stray drops or quickly 'lightening' a shade that layed down too dark. A much better approach to getting specific colors/intensity is to go with the detergent paint. It may take a few tries to get the color you want but you can slowly build it up with a lot of control. Straight acetone painting is very much like watercolor painting and while you can lighten some stuff, for the most part what you put down is what you are stuck with. It would be a much easier process if there were a way to truly 'remove' all unintended dye.
