Digital Camouflage Dye by Max McCool


The Digital Camo dye job has been a long time coming for me. It has been done before by patient people with steady hands.

A fellow “Man for Others” (Georgetown Prep Grad) got in touch with me awhile back about doing a UNC themed dye job for him. I started with the White Nike 2010 Legacy and began placing the stripes and doing the most difficult part, which is cutting out the “NC.” I have done the tar heel logo before and it’s fairly simple, however, the “NC” always causes me problems in getting the ratio correct.

Chrome GYM TAN LAX Heads, Part 1

I came up with this concept when I first became aware of the GYM TAN LAX gear at the 2011 Final Four game through a mutual friend from the Florida region. My original intention was to simply dye a bunch of white sticks with the logo on the stick and then I was able to get my hands on some heads. Read More…
