    Red Eye Decals?

    Hi everyone!

    I'm curious to see if it'd be possible to recreate Red Eye decals. Does anyone have a Red Eye with really good decals they'd be willing to take copious numbers of pictures of? They'd need to be as straight-on as possible, or from two angles so I could average the difference. I should be able to recreate them in Illustrator and then print them on waterslide paper.

    Anyways, I think it might be a fun project. Please let me know if you're interested!

    Same here. I wish my Red Eye's decals were good enough for you to use.

    My #2 Redeye is good, but not really good enough for this purpose. You'd have to photo shop some of the gold back in.

    But I'll have to joint Caroline and sak658 and say if you get it done I want a set too.

    Add add me to the list. I want one, too.
    I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day.

    If you do I would be interested in them, I have two Red Eye's and would love to have their decals in super shape. Love these machines. Just let us know. I will try to keep up with these posts.

    Dan, I'll shoot you a PM--those decals look like they're absolutely perfect for this! And I'm glad folks are interested; I plan to recreate them in Illustrator (to get those nice, clean, vector lines) and then experiment with waterslide paper until I'm happy with the results. I'll keep everyone posted!
