This thread was made a few weeks ago and dissapeared. Diabolos don't paint well, use RIT dye.

Yup, been looked into a few times. They dont paint well, the cups squishyness makes it hard for paint to remain, ends up looking horrible, RIT works best (even then on some diabolos and colours).

Suck it up and use your pink diabolo like a man.

(check out the gear sticky or search for RIT if you want to find more info)
