Zacks First Dyes!

Postby AustinDiscSports » Sat Apr 04, 2009 11:42 pm

Here are my first three dye jobs, not bad at all for a noob, or at least I think so! I'd like to hear some feed back!

Here is my very first one, its a tribute to my heritage (German). I put this on a 172g Champion Eagle. Its pretty well used, so it looks kind of scuffed up...
Image

Here's my second that I did later that night. On a 171g Champion Classic Roc. Putting isn't my strongest attribute, so I figured I'd give it a piece of my mind!
Image

Finally, just did this one tonight, a tribute to my favorite beer, and my first ever attempt at text. This is on a 167g Star Boss.

I hope to be adding several moreover the next few weeks!

Heres another I did last night for my girlfriend, trying to get her more involved by getting her a disc of her own. I did this mainly to practice my lettering (ive still got a lot of practice in front of me :? ), but also to just make her happy. I did this on a 171g Champion Spider.

I say run. :lol:

here's my advice for text: don't do it, or get a plotter. Or just don't do it.

How's her mom's butt? If you're thinking long term, it's an important thing to consider. :lol:

Dad always said "in 20 years she's gonna look like her mom" whenever I'd mention how hot a girl I was datting looked. He was VERY accurate in his predictions. :shock:

Haha! Her mom is good, tall and thin, not bad for an old lady, lol.
But anyway, lets move the convo back to my dyes, lol, here's a preview of my next two projects, hope to have them done sometime this week...

This I plan to stick on my TeeBird. The disc is a translucent orange, and I'm gonna apply the dye as dark black as I can get it so it'll pop out, I'm already getting exited to see how it turns out.
Image

This one I think I'm gonna put on a white rhyno putter. Its the flexible pro line plastic (I think thats KC, right?) I'm just hoping it will hold the dye, I'm also worried bout not being able to completely remove the green foil hot stamp, but its an old putter, it'll be interesting to experiment with it. The emblem in the center of the nested Texas' is the logo of UT's disc golf club, I'm gonna unveil it at our next meeting, so I'm pretty excited about that.
Image

I'll be sure to post the pix of the finished projects as soon as I finish them.

go go shiner!

since u are in austin I would recommend hitting up the Real Ale Brewery in Blanco. They make the Fireman's 4, which to be honest is their worst beer. The craft beers took away my love of shiner, and also Shiner 100 was a disappointment.

anyways...

HOOKEM!

and nice dyes
