Fearless Friday, Hydro Dipping


Have you heard about the new craze Hydro Dipping?




You fill a tub with water and then spray paint the surface with several colors





Then you quickly take an object or canvas and submerge it in the water





The paint forms an abstract pattern on the object

Very cool!!





This is Super Boy’s current passion

Here’s what you need…





A plastic tub, several colors of spray paint, disposable gloves,

and a little brother to shake the paint cans for you!





It helps to have a Dad assistant too…

{By the way, Southern guys insist on wearing shorts no matter what the weather!}





You also need something to dip!

He loves to dip water bottles like the one below

You can get them on Amazon here




He also has done phone cases,

he bought clear cases at the Dollar Store and gave me these two for Christmas!






To prep the object for dipping, use masking tape to cover areas you don’t want painted

He covered the top, and rim that the lid screws onto,

completely with tape, to protect these areas from paint

You don’t want to paint any areas that will come in contact with your mouth





Once paint is completely dry, remove tape and put on the lid





Super Boy learned how to do this by watching You Tube videos…

Here’s a link to some Hydro Dipping videos

Endless possibilities!





Have fun and Be Fearless!

    What a fun project for the grands Jenna! I love how he transformed those dollar store phone cases as gifts for you too 🙂

  2. This is unbelievably cool. I’ve marbled before and it can be a mess. I’m sure this has that potential too, but if a kid can do it, that’s promising. Pretty cool it sticks to metal and plastic. Are the spray paints waterbased or enamel? Thanks for this one — it’s a keeper!

    • The spray paint is enamel. He is really going wild with this, always looking for something to dip. He tried a wine bottle, but the paint just slid off…not sure why it works on metal and not glass, you have to dip something with a bit of texture to hold the paint. Thanks Jeanie

  3. Jenna, I didn’t know about hydro dipping…how cool is this! Ella Mae would love it, I think I will wait for warmer weather. The phone cases and bottles are so cute. I had to laugh about the shorts, and yes bare feet. It is still pouring rain here this morning, stay warm.

    • Thanks Pam, I couldn’t believe the bare feet, but when he was doing this last weekend it was much warmer! The rain is gone here this morning, hopefully the sun will come out soon!

  4. This is super cool! Super Boy did an awesome job! It’s also a great way to use up extra spray paint!

    This is really fun. I haven’t done it but I did see a video of this somewhere. I’ve got to give this a try, perhaps when the grand is here. Cute little kiddos and yes, you are so right about the guys and their shorts. Happy weekend…..

    What a fun project! All his projects turned out great. The little brother did an awesome job on shaking up the cans, lol, what an awesome helper. That creative gene must come from you.

  8. Bonnie Morgan says:

    I’ve never heard of this but it is super cool! My grands would love it.
    I’ll pin this for them to try. They love making things.

  9. Sheryl says:

    I’ve never heard of this technique, but it looks like a lot of fun.

  10. Rita C. says:

    You have another artist in residence! Awesome!

  11. Jill Kuhn says:

    Wow!! That is so cool!! I will have to try it this summer. Does it work on paper too? Looks like fun! 😎

  12. Kitty says:

    Wow Jenna!! What a great project for kids to do!! I am super impressed with the water bottle and the phone cases. My grands would love to do this. Thanks for sharing the fun!

    • Yes, tons of fun! If you do this with the grands, I recommend watching several You Tube videos to get more detailed instructions, but it’s really fairly simple, thanks Kitty!

    It is actually a form of Japanese paper marbling. Just learned myself.
