If the typical plain black hockey puck seems boring, then try adding some colorful designs to it. You might opt for a simple color change or choose an intricate painting for one side of the puck. You can use your new puck in a game or as a small art piece to put on display. Either way, you can create your own design for a hockey puck with basic supplies.
Place an old hockey puck on a plain sheet of paper.
Trace around the puck on the paper using a pencil. This will give you an accurate idea of the dimension of a hockey puck and what kind of design would suit its dimensions.
Draw several designs. Hockey pucks often have team emblems on them, but try several designs to find one that suits you.
Use photo editing software to create designs, if you don't want to draw your design by hand. You can use the software to experiment with shapes, colors and images.
Send a copy of your design to a professional puck printer. You can print several copies of your customized puck using one of these services. If you don't want to spend the money, or you are just designing a puck for fun, then try painting one yourself.
Apply a coat of primer to the surface of your hockey puck. This will make the surface easier to paint on and make your design stand out. Once you have applied a coat of primer to one side, carefully recreate your design using acrylic paint.
