1st attempt at hydro dipping

Post by xpert1111 » Fri Nov 10, 2017 9:15 am

Instead of bleaching this time I tried my hand at hydro dipping.

That looks very nice! I'd be really proud to have one turn out that good on a first attempt. I like the color scheme. Congrats on an even finer trophy.

Looks good, I like the color scheme also. Just got one back from my fishing buddy who is also a taxidermist, he only bleached it but I can't complain, he did it for free! Hummm, might need to show him a pic. of yours and tell him how much I like it, like hint! :lol:

Looks pretty good! Did you just follow the instructions from a kit or did Utube help?

I watched quite a few YouTube videos on how to dip. I wasn’t confident enough to try this system just yet! I want to read and watch more before I take the leap of faith! Lol
