First Shaving Cream Dye

Postby aerodriver » Sat Apr 06, 2013 4:34 pm

I used Big John of GoHam disc golf's tutorial on his YouTube channel for this shaving cream dye process.

Tried my first dyeing technique yesterday. Have the second disc (green ESP Buzzz) being dyed as I type.

The colors are really cool, but come in a bit faded. The only "accurate" colors are the yellow and blue. The center of the disc is really splotchy, likely from the disc sinking too fast into the shaving cream base and the dye not setting in precisely.

I'll post a picture of the Buzzz when it's ready, about three more hours from now.

Looks like this one slid in the plate. There should have been a blue center. Need to work on the water/shaving cream ratio for the next time (if there will be a next time...)

I like the color scheme on the beast.

Thank you, it would have looked much cooler if the disc had sat correctly in the base.

I'm likely going to do more since I have three colors I didn't use and bottles full of the dye...

Did another dye recently, went with a patriotic theme where the ratio of stars to stripes was a little off.

Interesting take on an artsy kind of random dye, but jesus that looks way too time consuming.

It's the waiting that takes a while. Actually putting together the dyes and base is the easiest part. It's all about how quickly you're able to clean up too.
