Disc dyeing has been a part of the sport for almost has long as the game itself. What could be better than carrying and tossing around discs that no-one else in the world has?
It's the same reason we love wrapping our cars, painting our homes, and dressing up our furry friends. Having something unique makes us feel special.
Here at Disc Golf Swag we believe everyone should be able to join in on that fun no matter the barriers that may stand in the way. Our goal is to demystify the process of disc dyeing and make it even more accessible to the world!
1. Grab a disc you already have thats in a durable/premium plastic. This chart is a great resource to see if the disc you have will work.
White or light colored discs work the best and can accept the largest range of colors. For example a yellow disc would turn green when blue dye is added to it. But a white disc would show the blue accurately.
There are several dye powders and liquids that work well for dyeing. The most common would be iDye Poly, Rit Dyemore, and Pro Chem Disperse Dye.
A great beginners method would be a simple shaving cream mound. All you would need is a can of shaving cream (not gel) and one of the dyes listed above.
2. Make a mound by applying the shaving cream to a plate or container that is at least 9 x 9 inches across. Smooth the cream into a dome shape with a credit card or similar tool. Sprinkle dye onto shaving cream mound very lightly onto surface.
3. Apply Disc to the center of the mound and push down until streaks of color appear from the sides
3. Remove Disc after 8 hours or as long as 24 hours to allow for color to set. The longer the disc sits in the shaving cream dye bed the more saturated the colors will be!

The result looks incredible. Nice work and technique. I tried shaving cream to dye my discs before. It’s not as perfect as this
