    Thread to a long discussion about it:

    Diy camo dipping kit - ArcheryTalk Forum: Target & Bowhunting Chat

    Or you can cut to the chase and watch:

    YouTube - D.I.Y. Camo Dipping a.k.a. hydrographing: Part 1

    and

    YouTube - D.I.Y. Camo Dipping a.k.a. Hydrographing: Part 2


    Overall it looks like a decent idea. A bit pricey, but for the D.I.Y. types out there, it is about perfect. I am just waiting on them to offer the Skull Camo pattern before I buy a kit. No word on it, not even sure if they are planning on offering it... In the event they do, however, I will be sure to jump on it.

    I see that they added several new camo designs to the patterns that are available for the dip kit. I think that the digital military patterns will be a big hit with many people.

    Just curious about durability and if there is a coating put on to seal once dipped item dries.
    Thanks.

    The camo dipping kits are no different than having any project hydrographed professionally.

    Just MUCH cheaper...You can send a bow off to a company to hydrograph and it will cost nearly $200 to do the whole bow, or you can do it yourself for $99 in any color you want.
