From what I have read and seen in videos, contact paper is low on the list to use for your stencils. Every thing I have seen reccomends 3M brand mid grade sign making vinyl. It will stick better and you can get get the material to stretch lightly to seal better on curved surfaces when you are smoothing out the designs with a straight edge.

If you heat the contact paper up a little with a hair dryer before you stick it to the disc. It will make it more playable. I exclusively use contact paper and have no issues. Practice makes perfect. Vinyl is the way to go, but I choose clear contact paper myself.

I love this dye and how it kind of flickers when you throw it. I did two of them myself I liked the design so much.

Did this for my 5 year old. The more she likes disc golf the more I get to throw.
Great idea! My daughter is only 7 months old, so the only thing she would do with a disc is chew on it, lol.

Last summer, I did one with the same design I used on this one, but with the sun rays like yours, and I lost it. This was supposed to replace it, but it flys totally different, so I'm gonna sell or trade it.

Dip dyed all the black outlines, removed all vinyl except foreground, shaving cream pattern, airbrushed blade, removed rest of vinyl, color in the rest by paint method like a coloring book.
