I found an orange Innova driver on hole 14 during the second round at the Ice Bowl. Not sure what driver it is, looks like it's marked "BB". Let me know if it is yours, describe the stamp to me. Only the initials TM on the rim.
A disc was turned in at the Ice Bowl that wasn't claimed. I think baash was written on it. I looked briefly tonight but didn't see it. The good news is, it's near the top. Anyone that has looked in my car knows what I mean.
Jason Baasch lost a disc on hole 16 his first shot of the day. It was blue. Unfortunately he said he only plays the ice bowl so we may not see him until next year.
What I might try first is spin dyes and go from there.
I can make a design in either Photoshop or Illustrator and convert it to a vector.
My Technique for spin dyes was using a simple box fan opened up with a dimmer switch to control the speed. I never really had much control, but made some cool designs. Some of these I used 2 techniques on
Once you get started, its hard to stop. I started off just brushing dye, then spin dyes, then contact paper for simple shapes. Once I dyed over 30 discs or so, I bought the plotter. Now my options are endless, just need to find the time to do it.
If you have a vector image, the stencil is quite easy to cut. Id be more than willing to help whenever I get time.
Thank you. I cant take 100% credit. I use a vinyl plotter to cut my stencils. I am not a hands on artist, but i can work my way around Adobe Illustrator enough to fake it. I have done hand cuts, but gave them up out of frustration.
Some basic tips 1.) Use iDye Poly for really bright and bold colors. Rit was good, but they changed the formula about a year ago. 2.) Use Oracle 651 or 631 vinyl instead of contact paper. You can find it online or at any sign store. 3.) if you are gonna hand cut, use fresh blades. nothing worse than being almost done and having a dull blade ruin your work. 4.) Learn Adobe illustrator or inkscape. This makes stencils easier. (#1 for me) 5.) practice on misprints. I buy boxes of random misprints from Discraft and DD. They are usually under $10 each. Once dyed, sell them for double to a buddy. Its worth it IMO. 6.) Goof Off to remove stamps, not goo gone or acetone.
I cant really think of any other tips, but I can try to answer any questions. I am gonna try to come to tags next weekend, maybe we can go into more detail.
If you are really gonna dye a lot, it's worth getting the plotter. After the initial cost of the plotter, It cost me about $1-2 per disc for vinyl and transfer tape.
Thanks Jesse. You ran yet another great event. I had to leave early after the round. I hope everyone liked the Towches. I actually got to use mine for the first time today. Thanks again and see you guys soon,
