First off, I thought the dragon came out great.
It just takes some practice, and it helps to diligently check the color of the initial dark shade every minute or two while in the dip. Then you'll have an idea how long to go to get the next shades.

Thanks I guess I'll just keep trying different times. Going to do the dragon again for me the first was for someone else.

I think it looks great. Maybe you'd see more definition on a white disc?

I think it's a 2 year adhesive life or something, but don't hold me to it.

With the bigger rolls, is it better to cut it down into sheets for storage or safer to leave it on the roll until needed?

Is there a program (preferably free) I can download to convert images to black and white?

You can always set your printing options to greyscale instead of color and let the printer do all the work for ya

GIMP is a great program and free, and can cover most of your image editing needs.
Inkscape is a free and great vector editing program, and can slightly more easily imo create a stencil type version of your image if you're not looking for just a grayscale.
