It would be a sin to throw and ruin this piece of art. Hat is off to the artist.
Flat shots need running on the center line of the tee and planting each step on the center line. Anhyzer needs running from rear right to front left with the plant step hitting the ground to the left of the line you're running on. Hyzer is the mirror of that.

Holy crap. 2 colours(apart from black) scare me.
Did you unmask-dip-remask all the way? Or handpainted in some fashion?

Either way its just fantastic.

Black is dipped. All the rest of the colors are hand painted.

A bottom dyed Respecti. Wanted to do blue marbling on the top. But it didn't take. Going to have to rethink what to do. Top view.

I've dyed discs with all of my kids school mascots. This dye has my high school mascot on it. Gold Line Flow.

Wow dude! Amazing work. Makes me want to get back into dying discs. Love the multiple colors and the faded color technique you are doing.
Are you making a paste for the hand painted stuff?

Yes I am. About 2 tsp. of powdered rit and maybe 1 Tbsp. of liquid laundry detergent. It makes a pretty thick paste.

Nice! Have you been able to find any other agent other than laundry soap? I've been trying to find other binding agents that aren't soap and haven't been successful yet.

I haven't. But I haven't really tried either. I store mine after it's mixed so I can just keep using it. Lasts forever. Dan is using shaving cream for his marbling. I know some people have painted with the shaving cream mixture. But you can't store it. There is a guy on dgcr, goes by DyeingToPlay, that is doing some pretty amazing painting stuff with acetone and dye.

I'm trying to find some sort of gel that would work.

I've been thinking of trying agar agar. Its a seaweed product they use as a thickener in food. There are some other gastronomy things I can't remember right now either
