    Sep 21, 2009, 6:02 AM - SHOWOFF: ESB girth #1

    I just dyed my girth belt with and I was just looking for some feedback on the color. Since ESB hasnīt really been confirmed as I understand it, I went for a red color with some hint of brown in it.

    Hope you like it!

    Itīs a bit brighter yeah, but the lighting doesnīt represent the real life color 100% (as always). I might dip it in paint one more time. Tha last one has sunlight straight at it, which makes it a lot lighter than it really is.

    Iīll wait and see what the experts say first.

    I think it looks good. I have been fighting with dyes as well. I feel ya but it looks good to my eye.

    The sun is different here in the states anyways.

    Thanks Boomer. I misted a little red from a rattlecan over it now, just to give it a little more color. Itīs considered done in my mind.

    I have dyed mine twice and it still has light spots. I even quit rinsing it out after each dye job. I think it still needs more dye or paint. Its just not "perfect" yet ya know?

    Yeah thatīs whatīs happened with mine as well. Itīs ends up looking really faded and old (which in Fett terms should be a good thing). Iīll see how it holds up with the red/brown latex stain I put it in yesterday and the added red spray I misted today. If it donīt work...well dye, dye again...
