America's First In Home Camouflage Dipping System!
MyDipKit is a do it yourself version of the commercial process known as water transfer imaging. This allows you to process parts on a small scale in your home. The MyDipKit contains the printed film, chemicals, paints, and other basic supplies needed for processing parts at home. You will need to provide a container for dipping parts in. You will also need to supply warm water, and the item to be decorated. With this kit you will be able to camo dip your own items!
This is the same process that gun and ATV manufacturers use to print camo patterns on their guns and ATVs. In addition this is the same process automotive manufacturers use to print wood grain patterns on plastic interior pieces. This process can be done on any hard surface part that can be safely submerged under water!
The basic steps are:
1. Clean and prep the part
2. Apply primer paint
3. Apply base coat paint
4. Dip the part
5. Apply clear top coat
What is Water Transfer Printing?
Water transfer printing, also called hydrographics or camo dipping, is the process that transfers an image or pattern to a 3D surface. Traditional printing methods cannot fully print on 3D objects, especially if there is hard to reach areas, or if the object is odd shaped. The water transfer printing process eliminates these issues by submerging the item into water, covering the whole surface.
The hydrographics process can be done on any material that can hold the base coat and that can be submerged into water safely. Some materials that the process works on include metals, wood, plastic, stone, Bakelite, ceramic, etc.

Tips for Picking The Right Hydrographics Dipping Container
The container can be made of any desired material such as plastic, glass or metal. A square or rectangular container is the most desired configuration.The container should be of a size that when you lay your desired part to be processed in the center of the container, you should have two to three inches of space between the sides of the container. Also, the container should be deep enough that when you process your part it will be totally submersed below the water line. Your container can never be too deep, but it can be too shallow.
