Burls Art made some resin guitar bodies that he wasn’t too happy with, so he decided to refinish one of them by dipping them in a tank of water and paints to produce a marbled design. It took a few tries to get it right, but after some trial-and-error, the finished guitar looks pretty awesome after the clear coat.
Awesome Hydro Dipping
(PG-13: Language) Hydro-dipping is the process of adhering a film to the surface of an object by floating it in a bath of water and adding an activation agent. We’ve seen it done to shoes, guitars, and helmets, but the guys at Russia’s Garage 54 tried to dip an entire car. Unfortunately, even the best-laid plans can go very wrong.
