This week we got an email from Michael Gialanella. Michael wanted try dyeing a Marble head after being inspired by other dye jobs he saw on the site. He is a dye enthusiast, but more importantly, a risk taker. Below is the email he sent us along with pictures of his finished product….
The idea (provided by Mr. Wilson) was fade light color to dark (I went Lemon Yellow, Scarlet Red, Kelly Green, Royal Blue, Purple) letting some of each color show while marbling it at each phase. I prefer to clean off the webbing and add a fresh coat for every color. It makes it more interesting with the blends of color versus what I’ve seen others do by keeping it purely 2-however many colors.
My only issue is that I didn’t fade it high enough. The next one might be on a diagonal or do a few colors on the top and different ones on the bottom to mix it up. If I do the same same thing I’ll go top to bottom so there is more marbley goodness. I’m sure the mesh will get some negative feedback, but whatever. I’ll probably dye the mesh different colors on the next one I do, just not a rainbow.
Any ideas on other jobs let me know. I’d like to do some more stuff with logos and images like the Jagermeister one and the stuff Matt Hickman has been doing. I’m thinking about doing a MD flag job so I have something to put my Red, Black & Yellow Marc Mesh in.
Feel free to follow Michael Gialanella on Twitter. This can be a good way to personally ask him more questions about dyeing.
