I wanted to try this kind of finish for a while. This is my first attempt... It didn't come out as nice as I imagined it - I need more practice. It's easy to get the paint too thick on some spots. It creates some surface texture that I may have to embrace. Colour separation is not great either. I finished with two coats of varnish which makes for a thicker finish than I would like ideally. I'll go into more detail if someone is interested, but I'm definitely a beginner in hydro-dipping...
Definitely like the look of it, with the color variation and all, but could be smoother as I personally like a more polished, smoother finish…….but I do think you should continue to refine the technique as it’s very cool.
Appreciate your comments guys... Maybe I should have practised first, but I took the plunge. Worst case - I can sand it back. I'll keep it until I can do better and I won't be able to stand it... I haven't seen many slingshots finished like this - I guess it might be because it's a tricky thing to get just right. Onwards!
Like Valery says , it's an interesting technique. looked it up and I have a frame that was a prototype for a narrow gapped goblet that's made from a couple HDPE cutting boards that will be a perfect subject to try it on. Appreciate the inspiration!
