Question New to the process...

Hello fellow dyers. I am new to the sport of disc golf as well as new to disc dyeing. Was hoping to get some good pointers from some of you pros out there with those incredible disc designs ive looked at.

My main questions i have as a disc dyeing noob is how one goes about doin multicolor graphics? Ive seen some threads that have small blurbs with pics that arent very well explained.

Another question is how to pick out good graphics to put on a disc or proper methods of taking the image i want and converting it to an acceptable stencil. Ive grabbed some images i want to use and when i try getting them to black and white they just dont look right, especially ones that are already black and white but need the colors inverted.

Another topic im interested in is about the shaving cream/soap method and acetone method of painting. What is this? and what are the differences in each method?

Also any other good tips and tricks that can help me do spectacular discs like you guys would be greatly appreciated. I am also on a limited budget so cant get fancy tools. Pretty much what i have to work with is the basics, a pc and printer, dye, exacto knife, contact paper, some discs, a pan, acetone, and 70% & 91% rubbing alcohol.

Thank you for your time and any responses that i get.
