Have a Nice’d Day! Disc Dye’n

Here’s a little article written up about Infinite Discs and Dying Discs:

Fast forward to a few weeks ago, when I began a hunt for the newly released Westside World…Over the past few months, I have been converting my entire bag to totally Trilogy plastic. (For those of you who don’t know, Trilogy is the conglomerate of Lat64, Westside Discs, and Dynamic Discs.) A quick search on El Goog led me straigt to Infinite Disc’s website, where they were stocking a few of these Westside Worlds. And with all of the stuff going on in this life of a new parent, I’m not sure how I remembered that Infinite Discs had contacted me many months prior, but nonetheless, I hit up Alan and BAM! He offered up a Shiny new Westside World free o’ charge in exchange for shameless plugs! We have a deal!

Now, I’m not partial to one specific DG retailer and I believe that there’s enough DG love to go around. With that being said, most of the time I’ll make the trip across town to the North side of Orlando to DiscGolfCenter, cause it’s always nice to feel the disc in your hands before making the purchase, and if you have a local store close enough and they have the selection of plastic you want, then by all means, support them. But sometimes, you’re in the hunt for a specific mold, color, or weight, and your local shop or retailer of choice just doesn’t have what you’re looking for, and if you ever find yourself in that situation, Infinite Discs might have you covered. Put them in your favorites, bookmark their website, like them on facebook, for Pete’s sake!

Thank you, Infinite Discs!

So I took this shiny, new Westisde World and I did the unthinkable! It had a beautiful gold foil stamp, and I just defaced the whole thing! I slaughtered the duck, and turned it into a smiley face! I was experiementing with a new dye technique, using iDye Poly mixed with acetone instead of water. In this way, you don’t have to let the dye set with nearly boiling hot water for long periods of time, basically it only takes a couple of seconds to set. I’ll go through the play-by-play after the break:
