DIY Camo Dipping (Hydrographing)

“bowhunter4e” has created a video tutorial on DIY. camo dipping (Hydrographing). I am inspired to give it a try. About half the items in my office, from my sunglasses to my stapler, would look better in camo 🙂

The DIY kit used in the video is the My Dip Kit which costs $99.

Part 1 and 2 are embedded below.

    Too cool. Probably will screw up the first few items!

    They did this with Ibanez guitars too a while back and a couple reissues. People do it on their own to replicate it as well. “PAW” or “Passion and Warfare” was an album by Steve Vai (ibanez guitar endorsee, major accelerator of the 7 string guitar development etc). The reason they call it PAW or “Passion and Warfare” swirling is because of a specific guitar that was on the cover of that album. They are replicating it.

    Off topic, I know but it’s so cool to see this is similarly done using water etc for camo.

    People actually wonder what mix of chemicals to use in the guitar swirling hobby. It’s up for debate as to how the original guitars were swirled and what mixtures were used. Maybe they can just get this guy’s stuff instead or employ things from his kit?

    Very cool. Thanks for sharing. That was worth the price of admission.
