Bought a couple Lat64 pures for putting duties. Got a zero line and a grip line. Here's the zero line. Dyed really well. Yes it's supposed to be grey. The image is from my two youngest kids school. Their mascot is the silverwolves.

One of these days somewhere down the road I'm going to get a plotter so I can do type like I would like to on an image like this. I wanted put the words bulls eye on this one, but the way I wanted to do it was a little more than I wanted to get in to since I was in a rush to finish this one so I could start playing with it.

Beauty. It looks as if you dyed the underside but its on TOP! Actually could be a cool effect if we could dye some on the top side and some on the bottom. I feel an experiment coming on :twisted:

Is this your personal artwork or are they images you found somewhere?
Either way you have fabulousss execution!

Some of this is personal artwork. But most of it is stuff I've found using google images.

I did this on a few discs before, and it definitely is a different effect.

Nice work.

Nice that is quite the treat, but returned plastic deserves a treat.

Absolutely. If I get the word out on the home course that I dye discs for anyone who returns a disc I hope I get more discs back. :D
