Those look amazingly detailed.  I'm not sure I would rock the same exact designs but this is a really cool way to add a personal touch to wedges.

 

Since I'm only slightly familiar with hydro-dipping, do you mind talking a little bit about the process you use to produce results like this?

The photos are the prep. I did not photo the process as it moves pretty fast. The driver will be redone as it is upside down. 

These were my first attempts ever so I think they came out ok. They are turning out to be very durable.

I suggest looking on youtube for examples. That's what inspired me to do this.

This is absolutely sick man. What would it cost me to send you my driver to have you dip it for me?

I like this way better than stamping and paint infills. What a great way to personalise your favourite 'keeper' clubs.

I say 'keeper clubs' as I doubt anyone would buy them afterwards due to the personalisation.

A PXG driver? I would be nervous!! lol

No cost from me just what it would take to get it here. I will cover sending it back. I'm in San Jose, CA so probably not a lot to ship to and fro. Turnaround would be fast I have no life lol

After a solid month of rounds and practice I can say the wear has been nearly zero. The wedges have been scrubbed in the range bucket and they show no wear so I guess it works pretty good. The driver is mark free. 

BTW the Ping Glide Stealth wedges are really nice. Very easy to control and seem to be accurate as they say.

Still look ok to me. 

I agree either you like it or don't; with respect to others not wanting the club. In the future I would tend to use less area and keep it inside the cavity. As this was the first attempt(s) I just taped the easiest lines around the edge. Time will tell if I do it again. The fact that it is very durable makes the decision to leave it easier.  

The driver however, is something I would do again. I am definitely considering doing the other woods to make a set. They are all different brands but this would unite them in a cool way I think.

Even though I am not from NY thanks for your service. We have quite a few NYPD retirees here. Fact a running joke around here was when they had most of our Coastal National Guard troops in Iraq we told folks not to worry we had enough retired NYPD cops here to make a small army with some redneck volunteers like me thrown in. Believe me between being a volunteer fireman and running a towing company I have worked with lots of police officers so you guys have all my respect

I looked up kits, and how to do this on youtube. I have 3 or for old old old I mean 50 year old wooden drivers and a few metal drivers that are only about 15 years old. So I'm going to buy a kit and see how it works out before doing my driver. You're right about being nervous. LOL I'm having second thoughts about dunking an $800 driver, although I got it for free through their Heroes Program.

The hardest part is putting the film in the water without getting it wet on top. If it does you have to start over with another one. 

 

Use the hottest water your tap can produce and let the film soak for the allotted time + a few seconds before spraying it. When its ready it will look like the film is now water. 

Dunk one end to the other with a steady motion. Finally the rinse does take about 5 minutes so run it under the tap and make sure the slimy feeling is gone. 

Just spray with lacquer. I went glossy but I am going to put a flat coat on this week.
