I'm an armature looking to do this for fun... so please don't hate me already whenever I ask dumb questions!
I just bought some film from Liquid Concepts and tried it out last night... and for some reason I couldn't get the hang of it. The film would either not stick on what I was trying to dip and I'd have film hanging off of it under water, or it was all bunched up, or the film would fall apart before I would even get started. I never made more than 2 passes with my activator, and it seemed to work the best whenever I would just make one pass. When I say work the best.... I mean out of 5 objects only one looked good enough not to sand back down and start over, and it only ended up being 75% covered. We did it with water around 70-80 degrees and also tried it in cold water.
Can someone give me some insight on what I might be doing wrong? I saw where a guy was spraying activator to close to the surface and it expanded the film to fast. So please have at it, I'd love to know thoughts and maybe some tips.
