Default DIY Spray Paint HydroDipping

I came across this the other day and thought there may be some TBHers wanting to HydroDip something on a budget. Seems pretty cool!! Not sure how long it holds up but I am definitely going to be trying it!!

Here is one I did right after seeing this same video - very easy just take your time dipping and removing the skull.

I've got a big boar skull I've been wanting to do, but haven't figured out how to tape up the teeth.

Coat the teeth with silicone and then peel it off.

Man... Just tried this. Maybe I have the wrong paint? I tried to swirl it and the paint just gummed up and turned into a big 'ol glob. Anyone else have that issue? BTW, I even warmed the water.

I had the same issue with the paint glob sticking to a stir stick. I'm guessing its the spray paint. Though I used warm water with borax as shown on YouTube video.

I've done two old deer skulls I found in the barn just to play with it a couple months ago and they still look like I did it yesterday. I'm impressed

Did you have to put primer on the skulls to make it stick well?

I haven't done any skulls, but I needed a youth stock for my wife's H&R Handy rifle and I could only get it in wood, the fore end was camo. I got as close as I could to it.
