Default This amateur is now dyeing discs!

I have been going at it for a few months but limited economy and plastic made it a rather slow process.

Hopefully i can give something back to this wonderful community that thought me practically everything i know about disc golf.

My limited amount of practice material have kept me from trying out the most advanced spin dyes etc but i feel i found my thing with bursts, lotion swirls/patterns, simple spin dyes and now, brainwave, or as i call them Dendritic dyes.

Unfortunately I-dye poly is the only dyes available in Sweden but i must say i have managed to get the colours i wished for out of it.

Any questions regarding technique and material will be answered in true hippie socialist mentality!

Holy spinning nebula!! Those are terrific dyes, man. If you have any interest in selling that tasty rainbow Instinct, shoot me a PM. Wife's birthday is around the corner, she would love that disc.

Now you're exaggerating but I love it. 😍

I unfortunately live in Sweden where plastic is expensive and for some reason our economy (I blame privatization) is worse then ever so you'd probably get 3 without dye for the same price.

It is in my bag (I sold my primal because I liked this one so much) but I am not impossible, dm me if it is still interesting! I could make you a new one.

And thank you.

The rainbow rim Instinct is the best. :-)


Where did you buy the I-Dye Poly? Online? Or at some local store?

And could you explain a bit how you did the dying. Did you mix the dye with acetone? Did you paint the circles with a brush? How did you do the other ones? Did you place the disc outcentered for the outcentered centrifugal force patterns? ... I'm curious. :-)

The spin dyes are the easiest to get clean and yeah, that instinct is the only swirly white one I have found...

Spin dye = detergent, aceton, record player and small brush.
The others are shaving cream beds! Dye mixed with a little parfume free detergent and lotion! Squirt out and make the pattern with a small stick and patience... 😅
The Dendritic pattern is the same dye mix but just smashed into something flat, the pattern is created when you lift it up again.

Thank you sir! I think Trump would send me to Mexico if i said my intended source of income was colouring frisbees.

Ps. I'm waiting for this long weekend to end, most likely working out a retailer deal with Latitude 64 so that i can dye and sell discs cheaper!

Managed to pull of a nice Dendritic rainbow and turn a golden/brown old MF Roc pinkish!
