Solid dye question...

Postby pask2155 » Sat Jul 28, 2012 3:02 am

I just bought a white ESP nuke. I hate white because it seems like it is hard to find after thrown so I was thinking about dying the whole thing just blue. So here's my question can I just buy the rit powder and dye the whole disc and leave the stamp on it? Or will the stamp look dumb once it is dyed?

Essentially I want a blue stock looking disc not white. Is this possible? And does esp hold color well over time?

Yup. It will fade, but all plastic does that.

The stamp will say the same, like Dave said the dye will fade and lighten up. It won't fade to the point of being solid white though, so isn't that the point?

You could even do a marbled dye with blue and it would probably look really cool.

Where the heck are you playing that makes it hard to find a white disc? The Antarctic?

IIRC December through April of thick snow in my town so PFFT. 28"tops. A little in November and May.
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.
