I would like to see some cool fades thanks
Here’s a couple @Jhammond93 posted here a few months ago…damn they’re gorgeous!
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
I have four hooks
I went off a video that I found randomly on youtube or something so I don’t even know if im doing the best way
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.
Thanks very much @smileypants707.
I’m going to go play!
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.
im about to wast 3 days of my life for some sick looking strings lol
The time was due to my volume. About 1000 strings at a time. You may be faster.
lol yes that would be the day I could say I make yoyo strings for a living
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.
I need the last onee!
