Custom Painting / Hydro Dipping

I was searching the web for new ideas for my paintball collection. I came across a company that does hydro dipping of firearms and thought I would give them a call.

The process goes something like this: an object (in this case, a JCURT milled autococker) is media blasted, then a primer coat is applied. An image is selected to be put on the object, the image is then put im a vat of water and an activator is sprayed on and the paper drops away from the image. The object is then dipped into the water and the images sticks to the object. It is cleaned and sprayed with a clearcoat.

I contacted Duckville Imaging ( Duckville Imaging - Camo Dipping - Transfer Printing - Camouflage Dipping ) and spoke to the owner, Ron Huffmann. He assured me that what ever I sent him, he could do. I told him he could do whatever he felt would best show off a pump autococker.



Now if you are interested in what he can do, check out his website and feel free to contact him for a quote. Be specific on what you want done since he does not play paintball and is not too familiar with different brand markers. Here is a link to the sample images he can do: Film Gallery

If you have any questions, feel free to post them and I will do my best to answer.

Sorry about the large photo, but it shows the detail better.

I was a first time sample type deal. So I only paid for shipping. If I would have had to pay for it, I would have been willing to pay between $70-$100 for it. The quality is incredable. notice he did not cover the holes in the freak tip.

So that others know... There's another company called Oregon Hydrographics that's already a dealer on our forum. They do top notch work, and have been doing paintball guns for a few years now.

It's nice to see some competition in the market, but you guys should check out what OHG can do, too.

(Nice gun, btw! Turned out great!)

Duckvilleimaging charges $15 a part to dip. If interested contact Ron. I just sent an Invert Mini to get done. I will post pics of that when I get it back.

I am also curious on how well this holds up to normal use?

I seem to recall that it holds up rather poorly compared to anno. HOWEVER, it's much cheaper in most cases, and has a ton of image options available, so it's a choose your poison kind of thing.

I've seen some beautiful examples of the process. I'm eagerly awaiting the first guy that does a whole gun in the "wood paneling" pattern.
