My first attempt at dying a golf disc. I didn't have transfer paper so I ended up cutting the design right on the disc. Used RIT liquid dye. It didn't take. A couple days later I applied a new sheet of vinyl and by shining a light from the bottom I re-cut the design using the old cut lines and slight discoloring as my guide. Second dye with powder dye worked great.


This was my second attempt at dying a golf disc. I cut the design using a desk lamp under a piece of glass. I then used painters masking tape as my transfer tape. This actually worked better than I expected. I think I went a little too dark with the mid-tones. But was happy with it for my first attempt at a "two color" dye.

These were my first dyes after reading a lot on the threads here. Orcal 651 with iPoly black.

Eddie took me about 3 hours to cut



The Obey dye took about an hour to cut.

Nice dyes. Love the lettering on Ring Wraith.

You gotta delete all the HTML and just leave the URL for the image inside the IMG tags for it to show up.
