hofstra-dye-1


I was asked to dye a pair of goalie heads for a player at Hofstra, so we started out with their colors and tried to keep it simple.

The Highwire Pocket Tutorial

Tufts Dye Tutorial

Tufts Dye Tutorial



In honor of the 2010 Division III National Champion Tufts Jumbos, I dyed this head as a gift to their coach.

We began with a lot of information, and it took a bit of time to figure out exactly what would and wouldn’t fit on the head. The finished product includes all of the coaches, captains, All-Americans, and the year’s motto as well as the Jumbo’s logo.
