The Official First Dyes Thread
This thread is for posting pics or telling us about the very first time you ever dyed a disc. For those that have dyed for awhile, post pics of your first dye/attempt, if you have pics. Be honest, no posting your perfect fifth dye and saying it's your first. For those just starting out, post your firsts here. With all the new dyers popping up we should be able to get a great collection of firsts.

Forgot a pic of mine, so here it is. A vampire chick from awhile back. It's even on a Champ Boss. :p Didn't get the vinyl on smooth at all. Tried a yellow sun on an orange disc. The black turned out perfect. Did get a new technique out of it though. The city background was done on the back of the disc. I put strips of masking tape on the back then poured a little bit of dye on them. The tape sucked up the dye and held it against the disc. Not perfect at all, but my first. It's a wall disc now.

Oh Boy Oh Boy!!! Here's my first!!!...........................White X-out XCal. Hand-cut and took me about 5 hours. Would now take half the time, if not quicker.

My girls first dye, and also the first disc either of us had ever done, she drew and hand cut, and went for two colors and a remask. Pro Rhyno, took forever to take color.


Meanwhile, I was working on my first dye, Hypercube on a champion Wraith. Took me forever, all hand drawn and cut. I obsessed over every little edge and line.

My first was on a Champ Wraith, hand-cut. Disc is now gone but I will never forget the feeling of pulling off that first mask, HOOKED!

here's my first dye EVER. Soft ION with some free Oracal 651:

This was my first. I learned that you really need to cut the vinyl, at least, an inch wider than the disc.
