hot glue

i dont know how well this would work for discs, but i play lacrosse and i dye my lacrosse heads alot, what i usually do is take the RIT power and mix it with very hot water, then i put my lacrosse head in. but the hot glue goes on the head to make a design, you leave it there for 10 minutes or so, let it cool overnight then peel the glue off. my question is do you guys think that the same way the hot glue works with the lax head will work with a disc? tell me what you think.

I've heard of/seen pics of this type of dye, but have not tried it myself. I would think that different plastic types may be more/less sensitive to the heat, but if you can lay it on without melting your disc it should work. I think someone suggested placing the disc on a bag of ice or something to keep the disc cool. Experiment with it and let us know what you find out

I have used Elmer's Glue in this way and it worked, but eventually, the glue melted, but not before making the design I wanted.

Just use rubber cement same result with no chance of melting your disc

I've had success with hot glue. Just some abstract freehand stuff though. It did work quite well on Star plastic FYI.

I used a standard hot glue gun on the low setting.
It looks totally different now the black has faded to a purple and the red is now pink.
