    First Attempt: Hydrodip / Hydrographic Water Transfer in Camo

    Alright. Here's my first attempt. The key here is to use a very light colored watch, like white or light gray. That way the film will show up.

    And this is very durable. Since I used a light color resin I didn't spray any type of base coat, which solves the "bending paint issue".

    Not too bad for my first shot. My next one will be way better since I know what to do now.

    So I went with a navy type camo, and it started separating a little because I couldn't get a good grip on the resins quick enough. I know how to solve that one now.

    Here are some shots. Came out pretty unique looking:

    That definitely looks great! Did you actually dip it twice to cover both sides of the strap?

    That looks great. Looks like it's carved from stone.

    Great work, looks really good

    Is there any way you can reverse the process and erase the graphic on the resin or you have to start on new one?
