Default my 2nd batch of dyes

the cthulu design turned out great on my putter (it bled a little and made a really cool effect around the rim) so i did a second on a driver, also did an obligatory bat symbol on a glow disc

Dyed my first Captain America disc over the weekend on a Starlite Roadrunner. The star in the middle turned out good except for where I over cut & a little blue came through. I also had some minor bleeds around where I cut the circles when was dying the blue, but the scarlet red covered them up nicely! The red bled onto the white circles when I was rinsing the disc, this is the first time this has happened. I am going to fill the white circles & star in with silver sharpie. The circles are a little off center & the circle patch I put over the star when dying the red was a little too big & off center so I filled it in with sharpie ( red, then brown, then purple ). color match is almost perfect! Overall I'm happy with my first attempt at a Cap Amer. dye!

Tom,

I actually really like the spots that were over-cut on the star. I think it would look pretty killer if one side (rotating clockwise) had a 30-40% over-cut. Little bit of a 3-dimensional thing going.

Good work.

Little off center, little bleeding... But, meh.

Raptor Paddock logo on an RDG Amber Raptor:


Pylam Red dye takes CRAZY fast! This was done in a Ziplock, no acetone or other solvent, just water and about 1/12oz of Pylam red for about 30 minutes. It took so intensely that the disc looks almost black if it's not in sunlight. On the one hand, I LOVE that, but it's certainly something to be cautious of! However, I'm not complaining for it costing $12 per 1/4oz.

I dissolved about one quarter of the 1/4oz bottle into 20oz of warm water and got incredible deep, rich color. Now that I know to adjust the time and mixture, I'm mixing the rest up in a Mason jar for re-use and can't wait to see what I can get out of this Pylam.

I know it doesn't look exactly like Wilson, but I decided to stop while it still kinda looked like Wilson. Shouldn't have used black for the lines either, they ended up too dark. Shoulda used silver/grey.
