Hey Army brats,
“I gotta tell you, I’m stressing. And ya know, I should know better then to let anxiety get the better of me, but working like this can sometimes throttle the best of us, right? It’s just, as soon as I touch that disc down into the dye or brush to disc, THAT’S IT, color is in and done. Man, I hope I don’t mess this up, I hope I don’t ruin this whole thing…”
Has this crossed your mind when you look at all these complicated “techniques” and sweet designs? Is that what’s stopping you from becoming a world class disc golf custom dyer? The thought that your oh so expensive plastic circles won’t be “worth as much” if you don’t create a picasso from elmers glue and gummie worm dip?! Are you the most powerful wizard in all of the LAAAND!!!
Exactly. You sound crazy. Stop that.
Relax, my ingenious brats.
Disc dyeing is an expression of enjoying life, not lingering on the depressing ideas that weight our lives down. And for shit’s sake, we’re coloring what people used to call “frisbee’s” over here, let’s work on taking over the world after we made a few mistakes and create some kick ass art first, shall we?!

First and foremost, you can’t ruin a disc. you can make it look less the way you wanted it to, but no matter what the hue, the disc is still going to fly the same what it did before you got you hands on it. For me, second thing to keep in mind is when you create, try and keep in mind that the person who the piece is intended for has to find the disc once it’s thrown. Lastly, a piece that creates an emotion will be appreciated most of all. Whether something remembered or something inspired, that personal touch is a detail that defines true artistic path.
So take a chance, live in the moment, and have faith that the outcome will be worth the journey.
With no regard for the past,
