In this manual and on the back of your aerosol cans, you will find complete instructions and safety information for this process.
You will need a dipping container. Make sure the container is large enough to accommodate both the size of your film and the part you are going to dip. Most objects will be dipped at a 30 degree angle. If you are dipping a rifle stock, be sure the stock can be fully submerged in the tank without touching the bottom or sides of dipping container. Bathtubs and sinks are not recommended due to clean up challenges. A variety of plastic containers are available at local box stores that vary in price. Locate your dip tank in an area that will not be exposed to wind, falling debris, or splashing water.
