MyDipkit is an at home do it yourself version of the commercial process known as water transfer printing, or hydrographics. This allows you to process parts on a small scale in your home. The kit contains the printed film, chemicals, and basic supplies needed for processing parts at home. You will need to provide a container for dipping the items 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 that automotive manufacturers use to print wood grain patterns on plastic interior pieces. This process can be done on any part that can be safely submerged under water. The basics steps are:

  • Clean and prep the part
  • Base coat the part
  • Dip the part
  • Clear coat the part
