Lazy man's die

Postby roman » Thu Aug 28, 2008 12:04 am

Still haven't dipped into the world of dying, partly due to laziness, partly due to lack of interest. Got bored tonight and whipped out a sharpie and drew all over the underside of my newly traded Buzzz. Came out pretty good, I think. It has sort of a ghost stamp look. The flash made too much of the marker show through the plastic, it really is more subtle than that.

I did something similar to my Z Predator. Too lazy to try dying it but I drew on the top of it with a Sharpie. Only problem with mine is that I do get streaks in it when stuff hits the top of it. Drawing on the underside is a great idea. Here's mine (taken with a camera phone.)

I'll have to take some pics of some that I did for myself and my wife. I still have to will myself to hook up some of my blank ones. I have a blank Force and Drone still waiting to be drawn on. The way they streak looks kind of cool, I just hate when they fade. Someday I'll break down and try a dye job.

I have done several dyes using sharpies. I have one that has a large NC State logo on it with my pdga number. I did it over a year ago and still looks good as new. When I get a hold of my camera I will take some pics.

I just now noticed this thread (been golfing more than foruming) and I have to say that sharpie'd discs are not the lazy man's dye. It's more of the dye for people with artistic skills. I mean, a sharpie is dye suspended in a solvent- not very different than RIT in water or acetone. It is a much easier application, to be sure, but harder in the sense of drawing and whatnot. There's some guy in Kennewick, WA that has sharpie'd a bunch of discs that make me drool every time I see them.

I say sharpie away, and keep posting them...

Here is a sharpie dye I did freehand a few years back.
It's a roc....I like the number 42....I like highway signs...
This is what resulted one night.

Too scared to spill dye in the house, so i'm a sharpie guy.

I'm pretty sure a friend found that buzzz at Peninsula Park, did you trade it or lose it there? He asked me if I knew who it belonged to and I didn't place it at the time...now I remember this thread.

I traded that Buzzz to a local here back in March. If I ever see him again, I'll ask him about it ;) Thanks for the heads up though.
