If you wanted to dye the entire wing area, this is my suggestion: Cut a vinyl circle just a bit smaller than the I.D. and attach on the bottom. Mask the flight plate with the same size circle and then dunk your entire disc in (color) Rit for a day.

I learned the downside of this color very quickly: I live in California, where all courses are carpeted (about 330 days per year) with a nice dry bed of yellow grass. I couldn't possibly come up with a better color for a disc to camouflage it in this environment. I have no doubt: if I continue to throw it, I will lose it. I will lose it in plain sight. I'll walk in circles around it and never find it. Nevertheless, I like the stamp and what-not that is on the disc, and it is cool to display that I'm throwing a disc made by a good company that isn't Innova or Discraft.
Thus, I was wondering if there was a way to dye the rim a bright red color, or something that would add contrast to the yellow so that I won't be soon departed from this disc. I thought about doing a dark color, which could also work, but it would be nice if it were a color that would also be visible in lower light conditions, as the winter is approaching and sunlight will soon become scarce.
I always found that dyed discs are harder to find than solid colors.
