you cant dye anything that's already black. also any white plastic needs to be dyed with acetone water

What moffet posted- the red/white finesses look awesome, you should give that kind of pattern it a go, langerz- maybe black and white or some even more contrasting colors.

Also, someone oughta' make a tutorial for taping diabolos, and what kind of effects you can get with it.

You can't dye that sort of hard plastic that (finesse) hubs are made of can you? Or at least not the black stuff.

Well i dug up a old diabolo of mine wich looks like a Harlequin and a Sundya Flys made a baby
And i just drown everything but the metal bits in black
Its looks good.
Hit the floor a few times but the paint didn't peel off or even get scratched
But the thing is somehow now its like 2x its normal weight

So yhea.....

That was just an experiment with paint
So no need for solutions
Will eat for Diabolo!

That seems like a contradiction to me.

Digging up this thread since I recently stumbled on this website:

www.spacepaintings.com

They show there how to that sprayart with templates that you can see artists in the big cities do sometime.

What has this got to do with diabolo?

Well, there was a guy who instead of paper painted his skateboard just like that and it turned out absolutely awesome (just to get broken hours later unfortunately ::)). Figured this could maybe be a cool alternative to dying if anyone think it´s worth a go.

I believe you mean stencil's? Banksy is a great example.

Unless you have stencil's or masks maybe which fit a diabolo's cup I don't think it's possible.
Well.. until a certain level of detail. You can always put some tape on a surface, spray paint it and remove the tape leaving a void.

Actually, anyone using spray paint on their diabolos?

I've been using certain type of paint on some jazz at the mo, and I've got it to stay on. I've now got a custom jazz that the paint stays on even outside, I've tested it by getting it spinning and launching it into the floor off of the back side, still the paint stays on. Langerz has seen it, those coming to my place will see it.

So forget spending money on died circus. Give it a month or so more of testing and trials and pick up a pair of proper custom circus.

P.S Anyone know any decent cheap airbrushes?

hahaha.

I really can't see the appeal on spending a long time dyeing diabolos.

Langerz is bound to now post some crap about yoyos :)

Well a stiff template would not work you´re surely right but maybe cutting pieces of paper in shapes and placing them on the cups separated from the axle would? I dunno but it´s a future experiment for me at least ;).

Does that require some sort of coating like the coat you use for painting (english?) or will it just stay on anyway? Because driving a copule of painted diabolos on concrete would maybe mess up the paint (or make it cooler in lucky cases).

@Diabolo88

The quote you used is the answer. The test I've done, the paint stays on...

On concrete also without any fading/chips from the paint. Sorry if this is the third time I ask the same, just want to make sure here before trying to spray one of my own ;)

your such a child. i like doing it, i think its great. thats why i spend sooooo much time doing it (apparently?). the yoyo market is very different in this context because you can make a profit on stuff like this. so to sum up, as a community we are cheap and uptight, whereas yoyoists are lovely people.

besides, yoyoers are better at press ups

To answer it a third time... Yes, it will stay on, even on concrete. Let me know how you get on, I'll be interested to hear how it turns out, specially as we will probably be using different techniques.

you are going to make NO profit on these. just to let you know.
I reckon there was probably a time when people thought that about yoyo.

I promise you because I'm keeping it simple, they will be quality.
That would of course depend on how you define quality.

We could of course let this decay into another petite argument, or people could just not post if they have nothing progressive to add to this topic. Simple as, you may not want custom diabs or dyed diabs but some people do, so you could continue to show your immaturity by saying pathetic semi derogative comments, or you could shurrup and let out some of that pent up testosterone by going an rubbing one off. Play safe kids!
