That's awesome, Kate! Super killer job!
Did you get all your dip supplies from DYC?

That chameleon effect is spot on...
Thanks a lot! Actually no, I bought unthinned dip from awarehousefull.com and thinned it myself (it was cheaper). Bought the pearl from pearlsandpigments.com. When I ran out and bought more pigment for my second time around I went through DYC since they've teamed up with P&P. Everything else I got at Lowes, and I already had a paint gun so I didn't need to purchase one.

so I plasti dipped the back of my phone, the battery door. so I could get a rubbery feel and non slip type deal. ill see how it holds up with being taken in and out of my pocket. maybe I found another use for this. all my old phones had the rubbery back to them and ive always liked that

Doubt it will hold up to the pocket test. You could use the plasti-dip primer though, which makes it a permanent bond, yet still gives you the rubberized texture.

I chose to debadge my Impala vs plastidip (did remove & spray imterior wood grain panels then trimmed in chrome)but murdered out my Tahoe from bumpers, moldings, wheels, grill strip, badges etc (same on my yota).
I resisted the dip until I tested it out (applied/removed), now I'm a dip-head with Plasti-dip sprayer & compressor lol.

Note: Tahoe (4x4) wheels dip job looked same as day I sprayed them when I removed it over yr later (mind you this no pavement princess Tahoe). Wheels were still mint underneath w/no adverse effects from being dipped that long.
