Another one I did a while ago. While dying the bottom rim I forgot to turn the temperature down. And when it got too hot the pressure release made the dye splatter. It's a star leopard.

A S-PD. Finally got around to putting a dye on my secret santa disc. The freak stamp is a bugger to get off. Some lines around the middle and the side of one of the points are the stamp. not bleeds.

I finally got around to getting a couple more done. This one is purely an experiment. Will be doing some more of these. I learned a lot with this one.

This disc is a bugger to take a picture of. There is so much reflection off the disc. Gold line River.

I dyed some discs for a local tournament set up on a temporary course at a farm. These are some discs I dyed for the winners of each division. The artwork was drawn by a local and then I cut them out and put them on the discs.

I love the disc golf cartoons.... I might just bum those and make a collage of cool pictures for my desktop.

Right now my wallpaper is a picture from a local course, always gets complimented here at work.

A couple commissioned dyes I just finished.

Cal Poly dye on a Star Katana. I wish I had done a quick dip in dark green to darken up the green a little.

and a Sons of Anarchy dye on a star TL. Can't tell you how much I hated doing this dye. Started with a low quality picture. Plus missed a few spots while weeding. Everything about this dye sucked. Except the finished product looks pretty good.

Is that Cal Poly SLO? That's where I go to college... do you know if the buyer is a SLO Thrower?

Sorry don't know what SLO is. He said that's where he goes to school. His name is Jarrod.

San Luis Obispo... there's another Cal Poly in Pomona (near LA). Just wondering which one he was at.

Ah gotcha. I'm mailing to Atascadero. So I'm guessing SLO.
