Still working on fades. But I do feel proud of this beauty.


Maybe not a fade. But I love it so.

I just started making fades and I’m finding a hard time getting the thickness just right

That’s what happened to me, try extending the rig and shorten your hook distances. Doing that will increase the amount of hooks and increase the thickness. So if you have a fade hook every 10 inches, back it down to 8. That seemed to work for me

Not a ‘spun’ fade but a fun project from my past. Hand-dyed white slick-6 50/50. We called it “Tye-Dye”. It took hours of work but the end result was sooooo pretty. What process do you use to make a spun fade? It’s not something I’ve ever really played with BUT I am curious. :slight_smile:

once I master it I am going to make a video on how to make fades

did you just use dye from a tye dye kit or did you use something else

Many different colours of RIT dye from the corner store. Extra large pickle jars. Fast boiling kettle. Chopsticks. A cheap laundry rack. 2-3 days of your life. :wink:

The time was due to my volume. About 1000 strings at a time. You may be faster. :rofl:

I also found this image with them in packaging. I used to lay all the ‘wrappers’ out in my backyard and ‘sprinkle’ dye across it. I was all about the branding back then. I even used card stock because paper wrinkled far too much when wet. Ah, the memories. G-String TD
