Spraying Plasti Dip - How To & Info


How do you spray on the plasti dip? I've never used it. I thought is was something you had to brush on... and if you spray it, does someone have to be in the suit while applying?

Not to sound to smart-assy but you spray it on.

There are two types of plasti-dip. Spray and brush-on.

Get the spray on which comes in a can like spray paint. Then hang the suit up where you can get to all the areas of it like you were painting it. Then spray away. If you are unsure about it spray something else and get the hang of it first.

thanks-- I never even looked at the product to see if it was a spray. I thought it was just something you applied with a brush.

Just keep applying light coats over and over again until you reach your desired effect. It is very cool stuff.

Don't spray the suit while its on... hang it up and spray it in a well ventilated area... TRUST ME!

Depending on the amount you put on things. It can go from being fairly flexable to very stiff. The parts you see that have been plasti-dipped that are shiny are usually very stiff.

I'm with Brother Keaton. Wear a mask or a respirator when spraying. Even though it smells good, you don't want to breathe in too much of that stuff. Be safe.

2 things: can you just buy it at Lowes or Home Depot and does it dry shinny or dull?

Only place by me that sells it is Lowes. It leaves a Matte type finish. It dries pretty quick and "mends" together a lot better than paint. After I have finished, I usually let it sit in the garage a few days until the smell thins out. Hope this helps.
