You have likely seen commonly used items with awesome paint patterns on them. Hydro dipping is the process that is used to apply a limitless range of patterns to objects. You can have a professional do the job for you. Or with basic tools like a large tub, two cans of spray paint, primer, sealant, and water-soluble tape, you can learn how to do it on your own.
Here are five of the top things that you can hydro dip and customize to make uniquely yours.
Interior and Exterior Car Parts
Interior trim pieces that are non-porous can be hydro dipped. The pieces have to be small to medium-sized. This includes things like door trim, door seals, stereo install kits, center console trim, and dash trim panels. You can take any of these pieces and completely change their color or add unique patterns, like woodgrain and exotic wood finishes.
When you look at your vehicle, you may feel tired of the black finish on the exterior parts of it. If you want to take bland parts and make them look more classy, unique, or attractive, a color and pattern can be chosen that will set you apart from all other drivers on the road.
Motorcycles and Motorcycle Helmets
If you are looking to go big time, the major components of the body of your motorcycle can be hydro dipped. Or you can choose to have just one area hydro dipped, like the gas tank cover.
Perhaps you want to start a bit smaller. A great place to start is with your motorcycle helmet. If you are a first time hydro dipping do-it-yourselfer, starting with your helmet may not feel so intimidating.
The first time you were introduced to the idea of hydro dipping may have been through an awesome pair of shoes that you saw. The great thing about hydro dipping shoes is that you have some options for customization. For example, you can hydro dip just the bottom part of the shoes. For example, if you have a white shoe, you will only see the pattern from the hydro dipping on the bottom part of your shoe where the sole comes up. Keep in mind that the paint is likely to wear off more quickly when hydro dipping this part of the shoe.
It is also possible to just hydro dip the top part. This is great for slip-on shoes. With this option, the paint will last a lot longer.
Cell Phone Covers
You can easily transform a non-porous cell phone cover case into something that is uniquely yours. If you want to make a fashion statement, hydro dipping your cell phone cover is the way to go. This option is also great for those who want to try hydro dipping on their own.
The cost of custom wheels may be too much for your budget. However, hydro dipping can take your wheels and turn them into something that will set you apart from all other drivers on the road. You can choose from a variety of patterns and colors to fit the style and color of your vehicle. Hydro dipping is a great way to take your wheels with a boring finish and make them really stand out.
While these are five of the most popular things to hydro dip, your options don’t end here. Consider hydro dipping your bike frame, glasses, paintball gun, and video game controllers. And don’t forget the wide variety of household items that can be hydro dipped, like tumblers, mugs, coasters, and cups. What you are looking for is something that has a non-porous surface and that you would like to customize to make uniquely your own.
