Making VIbrams more visible
 
I've got a bag with a fair number of Vibram discs. Since today was my first go, I noticed that the blue hues with specs of color totally blended into all of the grass and wildflowers. Is there a way to say dye grey to white to yellow maybe in an X on top?

I made an ugly salmon colored ridge come out pretty well with shaving cream, dyed it black and red.

I don't think there is any way to lighten the color of a disc. You can only make it darker and adding to much color can make it even more camoflauged. I usually just die a large pattern in one color on my Vibrams, helps make them a little easier to find.

The best thing to do would be to just give me all of your Vibram discs. I will conduct further investigation and field testing. Thanks.

I love Vibram discs, but they really need to stop using green. I have seen some that look like a great camo disc and damn near impossible to find even when you are looking right at it. There are some other colors that they could take out as well.

I had a green ascent that I attempted to dye red using the shaving cream method. Result was a Green and Brown disc that was harder to find and looked like sh*t. First round I played with it, I threw it in the brush and never found it.

They will probably stop making green discs once people stop buying green discs.

Light brown?! Who the heck thinks light brown is a good disc color? In the dry as a bone Midwest, that brown with little blue and green flecks is perfect camo for Central Texas scrub land. I got lucky once when someone found it in otherwise low sparse grass. I'd literally walked right over one of them.

I'm wondering...when I paint miniatures and prime everything black, I can get to yellow by going grey then white then yellow. I may experiment some with this. Thanks for the advice.

I took this ugly muddy mess that had sat in a pond for about year and gave it a idye bath. She's now a very pretty shade of red(little but darker than the photo shows) that I think I may do a v for vendetta shaving cream overlay with some black rit.
