    Just got into hydro dipping and these were my first pair if oakley's that I attempted. Went with the Navy digital camo pattern. Turned out great!

    Thanks! I should've let them cure longer before putting the lenses back in though. If you look close you'll see a few small chips. Other than that I'm happy with them.

    Yeah I just left them on. I think I'll remove them next time I do a pair.

    Here's a set of Maui Jim's I did. It really is an awesome way to make these your own.

    can you get them wet without the hydro dip getting soft or running? I would think if you got the lens cleaner on any part of the hydro dip it would start to run from the chemical? I've hydro dipped a couple deer skulls but never got them wet after I was done. I have also cleaned off hydro dip with a chemical cleaner.

    I put a few coats of clear coat over the top of the film so it should be fine. I do know that if you don't clear coat it's a lot more susceptible to being ruined by chemicals.
