 Smiley    Yes     Also called swirl painting .      The only limit is the size of your dip tank fixture .

How about Daron's hydro dipped Senator, rod and belly plate?  He said in another thread that they dip ATV's now.  Looks like it would be a lot of fun to play around with.

That looks pretty great! Does it come out smooth or require sanding?

Might give that a try for fun

This hydro-dipped Talica 50 was for sale recently locally:



Obviously professionally done though to get that pattern on there rather just a random swirl.

Professional Hydro dipping is done with a printed film. They have hundreds of patterns to choose from. It is finished with a automotive clear coat.  Joe

I tried it. None of mine looked as nice as the ones in the video, but I would definitely give it another chance. I also tried some with fluorescent spray paints and that didn't work out very well. Too watery.
