The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf
I have seen many people post pictures of their discs that have been dyed on this web site.
I have met people that personally dye their discs.
I have been told how some people dye their disc and I have looked it up on the internet.
I went as far as using an acitone to clean the stamp off my Nuke and it warped the hell out of it and it never flew the same again. I ended up using a "Sharpie" to draw a design and it looks like crap.
Apparently I have not done the process any justice, I am not good at it.
So to all the "ARTISTS" out there, How do you do it ???
I want to be an original out there.
Instead of saying, "I lost a yellow Nuke". I want to say "I lost a yellow Nuke with a kick ass Mushroom cloud on it" or something like that. I hope you get what I am saying.
Please help me become an "Artist"
I had found a pattern for the stencil. I was able to cut it out (harder then it looked) and place it on the disc. I used a foam brush and placed the dye in the area I wanted colored. I had let the dye sit for one and a half hours. Rinsed the disc and the dye did not catch. The Disc stayed white. Damn, Damn, Damn !!!!!!! I have had nothing but problems with this Dyeing crap. I want this disc to be done, so that I may move on to Innova Discs. People do not seem to have a problem dyeing those things. I have not given up !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I saw on YouTube some one using liquid dye in a bottle and a foam brush. It looked so much easier and less messy. So I give it a shot. I am gussing that Ching Discs do not do well being dyed. Heck they even etched their disc. So I came up with another idea. I'll post the results and pictures up by Saturday.
After that, I'll stick to Innova Discs and I'll use the soaking method.
Does anyone have any hints on my stencils. It is a pain in the Azz for me.
The good news. I did not fu*k up the disc like I did with my "NUKE"s.
It is my first attempt at designing a Disc.
And now thanks to Cassidy, I'll be able to complete my disc dream.
I'll keep you posted on my next two discs.
