Ok...guess I'll start a gallery thread of my own.
To blatently get my post count up to beyond noob.

A stencil of Yoda with the two quotes...
Luke: "I don't beleive it"
Yoda: "That...is why you fail"

On a Green Champ Valkyrie that I found at a tourny.

Love how it turned out.

Made a few mistakes still...
1. I wasn't careful enough when putting it into the dye.
2. A minor bleed due to a slip of the knife. (I was fearing far worse bleeding though)
3. Few millimeter air bubbles caught on the cut out contact paper.

But...make the attempt and learn from the mistakes. :wink:

Pictures aren't that great.
A dye for a friend.
A grim reaper, smokin a [censored].
If you can make out the bottom word, you'll get the idea.

On a 175g Orange Champ Orc I won at a Tourney.
Figured out what to do with prize discs that I don't throw.

Learned from the slip of the knife from frist attempt that that's how you can get really thin lines.
Just make a cut in the contact paper.
That's why it's difficult to see the blade of the scythe.

On a 175g Red CFR Starfire-L
Stamp was already wearing off anyways.
Maul would kick Vader's arse.
Prior to being f'ed up by Obi-Wan, it'd be different.
But as mostly machine (as he's generally known) Vader wouldn't stand a chance vs Maul.
Yes, I'm a Star Wars Geek. Have read most of the books as well.

A Skull of Spades design that I saw on ODSA that I had to make.
On a 175g White Evolution Element I won at the Benny.
Little disappointed with this though.
The stamp (07 SnowBowl) caused some major headaches.
First it didn't wanna come off completely.
Then, since the stamp was so concentrated, the stamping process singed the plastic a bit.
And when the acetone finally got the stamp off, the acetone caused the singed plastic to peel back.
*sigh*
Removed the peeled back plastic with some sandpaper.
A when dyeing, the mask began to peel back from where it layed upon the 'ghost' stamp.
Caused some minor bleeding and the areas of the 'ghost' stamp that were to dye, didn't take the color completely.
Can't really see these probs in the pic, but I was soooo annoied by this.
Leason. Don't dye discs that had complicated stamps.

Image
A stencil of Neo from the Matrix and the altered quote: "There is no Wind".
On a 175g Blue Z Wasp, my headwind disc.

Ok...so only Black & Red, but start off easy, then step up to more difficult.
Intertwining Dragons.
On a 170g White Pro Starfire-L

A 175g Pink Champ Teebird
er...a tribal beasty design??? Looks like Pan from the recent Spanish movie "Pan's Labyrinth"
Done with Blue dye, so it looks purple.

Back to one color, but this was to test another masking material.
One that I could cut before placing on the disc.
Previous masking material required cuttin after placing.
Left minor scratches as I cut out the design.
Except the fact the scratches followed the design, they're indistinguishable from normal use scratches (sliding across rocky surfaces, etc...).

This was made using Sign Vinyl and the dip method.

The Image is from the Magic: The Gathering card, "Avatar Of Woe"

Used sign Vinyl to just do a slight grey outline on the disc.
Then painted on the rest.
