The official I suck at plasti-dipping club thread

I might be the only member of this club and I am ok with that. I consider my self to relatively handy but this plasti-dip stuff is going to be the death of me. First I thought I was spraying from to far away. Nope no it. Then I thought it was the wind, so I moved into the garage. Nope not it. I even tried multiple different cans of the stuff and nope I still get splotchy areas and air bubble marks.

I have tried 3 times now and this is what I get....




Two things are for sure:

1)I should invest in 3M with all the painters tape I have used.

2) Pottery Barn catalogs can be useful .

I cleaned the hell out of it. I think I might be coating it to heavily or moving the can to fast or slow. Going to try it one more time.

It's funny you posted that picture with the papers because mine look exactly like that the other day when I sprayed some of my stuff.

I was under the impression that you don't need to sand with plasti-dip you need to sand when you are painting the chrome. With plasti-dip you just need to clean and degrease the area you spraying.

Re: The official I suck at plasti-dipping club thread

lol awesome thread... one thing i've found from working with this stuff is that if you want to peal of the tape covering the paint you should do it while the paint is still wet because the plasti dip will dry over the paint and will peel off with the tape

Re: The official I suck at plasti-dipping club thread

no need to sand with plasti-dip, that's the point! You need to start with a light coat, not even dark enough to cover, then another light coat 10-20 mins later. Then wait another 10 minutes and do a heavier coat (not too heavy) and then maybe another light coat to finish. Thicker the better since its easier to peel off all at once when its thick. Too thin and you'll be scrapping all day long. Practice on something small. Like a frisbee or something random. Its really easy once you get the hang of it.

Thanks for the tip.

Yup do that. That's how I've always painted. Pops taught me at a young age when he was restoring classics!
