Thanks!! Working on a dye for a friend who got me into Disc Golf a couple of months ago. It's a little more intricate than this one. Will post when done.

I noticed that you curved lines are an issue for you. try doing the curved edges in one smooth cut and turn the vinyl as you cut if needed. a sharp blade help a great deal as well. I try to use a new blade every stencil or 2

Thanks for the tips. I remember not doing the curves in one cut like you said. I used contact paper. Vinyl was really expensive when I was shopping around. Is there an advantage to this over the contact paper?

Anyway, here's a disc that I dyed for my buddy. I think I may have put more teeth than he actually had.

Nice dye! I used contact paper at first, and it was good for some simple dyes. But once you start cutting really intricate stuff the small cuts stay in place a lot better. Also once you start doing multi colors it will bleed a lot less after being in the hot water for so long.
