Oogoo, in my experience, is basically silicone sealant with cornstarch added as a catalyst so it cures faster. I use about a 1:1 ratio, and it doesn't stick to anything. The silicone disc was about as grippy as the oogoo used to make darts, so I didn't bother making another disc and testing to see if it worked. I'd be interested in finding a way that allows painting/lower friction though.

I, for one, think firing washers is a terrible idea.
Firing straight washers, yeah... bad idea. Crotalus didn't even mention washers though.
Ferrite element does not seem to equal washer. It could be just two counter-wieghted magnets. This is also assuming that there wouldn't be anything on the outside to cushion it, like the foam that allows there to be a spin.
Just like firing metal bottle caps= bad (not to mention that it doesn't work); but with a foamish cushion, it's quite viable.
