    My first dye jobs.. gdx6900 and ga110

    Hey everyone. . I tried my hand at dyeing a few g's today. . I think it came out ok... I dyed the all yellow ga110 because I really wasn't a fan of all that yellow. What do yall think? Excuse the poor lighting.

    Looks like a good first effort to me steelersfan

    Surprising you got such a good coverage going over yellow as you did
    On that GA maybe lettering in white or yellow would really set it off ?

    Yes hobby paint is fine the small bottles they use for model painting.
    I just buy the small bottles here of acrylic paint from art stores

    Dont bother trying to brush it into letters. Letters are so tiny

    Just dab some over them & them swipe lightly with a gauze to pull excess off.
    Blow on it a little to help dry a bit...then again with a gauze that has some fingernail polish remover on it
    gently drag the gauze across to take off any excess.

    Easier than it all sounds...try it you will see.

    I only ever took pics of the first one I did awhile back.
    Since then I use less paint on initial pass so dont mind this next pic too much.
    Use less than I did trying to stay as much just on the lettering as possible


    Looks like this after putting some paint on

    One tip is if you have a phone or digi cam handy...when it is done & before re-installing it take some pics &
    look at them...The cam pics up stuff your eye missed & you will be able to go back & grab the stray specs now easier

    Also a Q-tip dipped in remover works well for any crevices if you have inadvertent got paint in any

    Also you can play with any paint program to give you a rough idea what it looks like before actually doing it too.
    Which is what I did a day ago when deciding on this one in a paint program if I wanted to paint some or all lettering

    As you can see below I chose to do all letters in gold as it looked more balanced IMHO

    I've painted several bezels with different colors of Testors model paint (which is oil based), using the same method that flying showed above: paint it on with a Q-tip, then wipe it off the surface with a bit of tissue moistened with paint thinner.

    I've painted ONE bezel with acrylic model paint and it dried so quickly that it was difficult to remove it from the surface of the bezel. It might have been the brand of paint, it might have been me being new at using it, but based on that one experience I prefer oil-based paint because of its longer "working time."
