The course was spot on. It Was an honor to learn from rob and Nigel. I gained a lot of knowledge and confidence during the 1 day. I am now hooked and I highly recommend them.

This week at Dorset Hydrographics has been fantastic! The team of Nigel and Rob work well together which makes the course both productive and enjoyable. Now that I have been taught by the best I cannot wait to get going and put all I have learned into producing quality work. I would highly recommend these guys if you intend to start a business or just dip for pleasure, once again thanks guys.

My wife and I just finished a 2 day course, the lads were friendly, helpful and enthusiastic about teaching us all of the trade secrets, not just dipping but the preparation and clear coat finishes, we left feeling confidant in ourselves and now look forward to a future in the hydro dipping and air brushing industry.

No prior knowledge or experience is required, just a willingness to learn.

Demand for Hydrographics water transfer printing (or hydro dipping) is rapidly increasing in the U.K. If you would like to kickstart a new career, add hydrographic printing to your range of skills or just find out what it’s all about we offer comprehensive courses for beginners and for those with more experience.

Our one day hydrographics course is fully hands-on, you will dip at least a dozen parts during the day under the supervision of our experienced instructor.  We believe the best way to learn is by doing, not sitting in a classroom listening to a lecturer and taking notes.  However, there is a lot to take in so we do recommend you bring a notepad and pen, although all the key points are included in our free training manual.  We are also happy to advise on equipment and setup costs so please feel free to quiz your instructor during the day.

ALL TRAINING IS GIVEN ON A 1 TO 1 BASIS ensuring you get our undivided attention and maximum time on the tank.

Hot lunch, a copy of our hydrographics training manual, and a course completion certificate is also included.

  • You will learn from our experienced instructor:

    Introduction to hydrographics, the process explained
    Paint and Prep…the most important side to Hydrographics
    Activator gun set up
    Preparing and laying film without bubbles
    Dipping parts, angles and pockets.
    Rinsing the part
    Under and Over Activation
    What can and can’t be dipped
    The correct use of the Tank
    Back masking
    Double dips
    How to Clean, Dry and then prepare parts for clear coat..
    How to quote for jobs.
    The market today, where we think it’s heading.

No prior knowledge or experience of hydrographics is required, just a willingness to learn.

We recommend you bring your own respirator mask (also available to purchase from us), we provide overalls and gloves.

A one day training course is perfect if you have a spray painting background or experience in automotive painting.  If you don’t have any prior experience then we advise giving us a call to discuss whether a 2 or 3 day painting and hydrographics course is best for you.
