I bought a nice new Ken Climo Pro Aviar to dye for a good putter. I assumed the "Pro
" meant Pro
plastic, but it seems it only means "Ken Climo is a pro, and this disc is made of recycled scrap
I cut and masked with great attention to detail to get the font right(all hand-cut). I knew this was going to look clean and sweet when finished. I mixed some "scarlet" and "wine" Rit dye concentrate with a little water and into the warm pan it went.
After soaking for 10 minutes, the vinyl was dyed, but the disc didn't seem to hold ANY dye. OK, no prob, I'll warm up the dye again, let it go longer.....and on and on. No different. I added more dye concentrate. Same. By the time I was done, the liquid was basically all dye and no water. I left it in the pan overnight and through today.
This is the end result----a weakish pink/purple, looks like chewed bubble gum.
The lines are clean, no bleeds, although I don't know how a bleed would hold anyway......
So this will be a practice putter.
Word to the wise -- KC PRO does NOTTTTTT mean Pro plastic!!!!
