Perfection just got a new name, Candy Cane p2


(SR) #3

That is insane! It just looks so perfect and awesome! You just do the best dye jobs, Brett.


#4

He didn’t dye it. I don’t think you can dye metal XD


#5

Yes you can. It’s called a gun. :stuck_out_tongue:

That is amazing. I bet that took FOREVER to do. Especially to get it so perfect.


#6

they use dye in the anodizing process, dont ask me how because i dont know for sure lol.

i think it is satined, correct me if im wrong Brett


(Mitch) #7

Stunning…

Brett, you have too much time on your hand, but I admire the work that comes out of it.
I’m pretty sure he paints it, but yes you can dye metal. It just takes a lot of electricity, but that is exactly what anodization is.


(Hardcore_Max) #9

Truely a piece of art


#10

Well, don’t mislead people. That’s not what anodization is, but it’s one property of the outcome that makes it so appealing in this industry.


#11

can you use dye to get rid of dinks? my boss gets dinks really easy


#12

Umm…dinks?

Or dings?

If dings, no.

I’d try sanding them down if they bother yo, if not, just leave them there.


#13

will that get rid of the rest of the ano


(JM) #14

Okay, okay I’ll try to clear it up. Anodization is a way of “Dyeing” aluminum. You can use a regular RIT dye even, but there is a catch. Metal is pretty stubborn, and it wont just take a dye. What you have to do, is set up a complicated rig (that I won’t go into detail about here) that basically uses electricity to make a bunch of microscopic holes in the metal that will “hold” the dye. Sorry for any confusion.


#15

Yep.


(Gorrilla_YO) #16

Whoa, SWEET DESIGN, thats a first for me, looks so precise. :o

How much would it cost to snatch it from you? LOL JJ

~gorrilla_yo ;D


#17

i just had thought, what if you got a red and silver sharpie and did that on a drill?


(JackG) #18

or a red/red p2 and a white sharpie


(Mitch) #19

It would propably come off from sweat/oil from your hands and then come off real easy on dings…


(JackG) #20

thats a good point
but i think it would be hard to make strait line cause the yoyo is like / and just think about it
