My experience is that the disc alone is usually enough to get _to_ the edge - as in looking at it straight from the front it is covered. But if you want to go around the edge, like on Dans Buzzz, you need some weight on it.

My man Heisenburg on a Pure!
I was thinking of putting him on my putter. I use baseline plastic though so I think I will have my girlfriend draw it.

Thanks StoneWallKid!

That Valk and a few other dyes are up on a certain auction site

More coming! Trying to catch up, got a wedding today in Dallas GA, otherwise I'd be cranking out some work on Okthrowberfest and the like.

Tomorrow I will be working on getting details grinded down for Okthrowberfest, see who's pledged to donate, and start the ball rolling on this thing. If you're able to donate ANYTHING to the contest -- cash, PLASTIC, swag, ANYTHING, please send me a PM. I know you guys love this contest, so PLEASE help us make it pay out what it's worth! I know you have plastic collecting dust -- that could make some entrant's payout dreams come true!

Since I lost the original one, I spent last night doing it again - this came out tons better. Plus I got to try Dan & Bennet's "dyeing to the edge" techniques:

I dressed up an old Wraith with this simple pattern. It didn't turn out like I envisioned it would. The differences in shades of red/orange are a little too subtle but, as usual, it's better than it was.

So I finished the trophy discs for the DGCR Hawk Hollow meet....







The cold have been a lot better. But for a first multi color attempt it will do. I probably won't do multi-color again. It's such a hassle.

@FredVegas -- I think those turned out SICK! You're too hard on yourself!

I know multi-colors is a MUCH trickier part of the process, but you did a great job, and it's worth it if the job requires it.

Thanks Bennett, I guess I'm comparing them to some of the great dyes you guys do.


I appreciate how tough these simple dyes are. There is no way I'm gonna attempt some of the complicated designs you guys do.
