Got my blade today and did some testing. It is beautiful. It is a different kind of color and really pops out at you. One die of royal blue photon was almost as bright as two green dies with a regular blade side-by-side (all using Coppernova XP-E2s).   
Also, mixing in one die of green with the Royal blue photon did put the photon blade well over on brightness and evened out the color difference for the tip. It nearly matched. (My tip was painted a translucent green.). It looked really even and bright.  I can't wait to try a full-powah setup. :)

Luminara - Do you have any completed blades left?  I was going to order from TCSS and make my own, but if you have any stock left, I may just order one.  LMK

Yes, I'm very happy with my purchase from Vader's Vault. The tips match really well.

Merrick, did you paint the tip yourself or did you order a blade from Vaders Vault?  I have a VV blade and the photon blade is a great, unique look.  I have some of the Photon blade stock from TCSS as well and want a rounded tip that matches.  I tried some translucent Green Polycarbonate paint on a tip and it still comes through as straight blue.  I still want the "shine through" look rather than just placing a full mirror on the tip. 

Luminera - did the tips you had manufactured match perfectly (color wise) to the blade stock?

Any tips, anyone (pardon the pun)?

Habbena, currently the tips are painted but the technique we use gives a pretty consistent finish.  I will say right at the point of the bullet it is still a little blue.  The eventual goal is to have tips also made with the dye.

You did a great job with the painting as I thought the tips were actually manufactured with the dye. 

Thanks for the info - I'll continue trying.  Thanks!
