Cool Disc design

I know it is not technically dyeing, but how do you draw a custom design on a disc. I got two g star thunderbirds with no stamp, and I don’t know about dying, but drawing a cool design seems good. Will it stay with colored sharpies? How do I draw it out first, pencil? Has anybody tried it? Does it work? Thanks

I've printed out a design on regular copy paper, taped it to the disc and traced it with a sharpie. Took the paper off it was kind of like connect the dots, finished the line work, did a couple touch ups and it stayed longer than I owned the disc.

That’s awesome, thanks. It is a red and purple disc if anybody has any ideas. (I will not necessarily take those ideas)

I let my daddy draw on my discs. He's stuck in the house and it gives him something to do. He makes the designs on paper and then tapes them to the disc. He traces the design with a fine-tip felt marker creating a faint bleed through version. Then he removes the paper and redraws with thicker lines, various colors, and so on.

Do a web search of "native american thunderbird." Lots of possibilities there that would fit your theme.
