My first attempt at hydro dipping. What you guys think?

Yes, there are lots of imperfections.

The base coat is bright orange but after it was dipped it looked very pink. I want to try a white next. I could have probably touched up the orange areas with a gray paint or even black. There was lots of black touch-ups.

This is the first hydro dipped body I've seen on the forum.

Nice! This is the second one I've seen, there was another one on f******k, an audi, also w/ skulls.

How about a carbon fiber look like this one?

First I've seen but I was incognito for a few years ;). I think this process is really cool and there is a large selection of patterns.

I'll search for that Audi.

Thanks

i liked the idea of hydro dipping for a while now( mainly real car parts). my only concern is how does it hold up, especially on these when getting hit

Yeah thanks! It turned out better than expected for a noob.

When it's not cleared it is delicate. I've yet to run it on the track with other cars. I'd say as durable as it could be with clear coat.

I did several dipped bodies last year. It has a learning curve to get it just right. I was able to get a few come out great. I'll look for some pics to post up if you don't mind

Looks really good! Did you use a home kit to dip it?

Yeah. Home kit.$79 shipped to my door. Enough paper to do 5-7 bodies. However it all comes in cans and you would need an air brush to do more than a couple bodies. They give you a large can of compressed air but it's not enough.
