Painted Skins & Custom Re-colours for PCs + Gaming Consoles

Hydro- what?


Nintendo Wii custom painted skulls and roses silver

We can take any gaming console — be it an XBox One, Nintendo Wii U, PlayStation 4, or legacy consoles —  or PC case, and hydrodip it, based on a selection of designs you can choose from (or BYO).

Hydrodipping is a form of manual printing requiring great skill, where designs are transferred from a film onto complex 3D surfaces on the surface of water.  It is distinct from other forms of commercial printing because it results in much more vivid and very highly-resolved images.

Hydrodipping is not to be confused with vinyl wrapping, which is a service we do not currently offer.  As opposed to vinyl wrapping, hydrodipping provides a true and permanent modification to the surface of products.

Our Services


Our hydrodipping services are ideal for turning any pedestrian, plain-looking mass-produced product into a stand-out product.  We specialise in modifying gaming consoles and PC cases.  We use the same paint and techniques used to modify performance or luxury cars, which means quality and durability to excess.  We can handle orders of 1 — 20 units at a time.  Larger jobs can be negotiated, but it would depend on the complexity of the job and the workload that translates to.  Contact us to negotiate a job.

In summary, what we offer:

  • Hydrodipping customisations for PCs and gaming consoles
  • You have 2 options:
    1. Send your own custom design to us – possible, but costly to for us to do at low volumes for individuals.  If you are a company wanting to replicate one design on many pieces, this is much more cost-effective.  To BYO, you will need to be able to provide us with an editable vector graphic in the form of an .ai file (preferred), or EPS, PDF or SVG.  Please contact us for a quote.
    2. Choose a design from our collection – most individuals opt for this option, as while it costs to achieve, represents a sweet spot in terms of pricing and wow factor.

What we do not offer:

  • Painting a design on by hand, one stroke at a time – you would need to privately commission an artist to do this; this is not something we offer.
  • Graphic design services.  For the most part, we either use pre-existing designs in our collection, or one that you bring.  At this time, we can’t design skin art specifically to order.  Perhaps in future, we may expand our offerings to include graphic design services, but not for the time being.
  • We will not modify your existing console/PC – you need to purchase a new console/PC from us to be eligible for this service.

Common uses for our services include:

  • Personalisations (popular among gamers and hardcore computer users)
  • Customised gifts (for that wow factor)
  • Business branding and logos
  • Sporting and national advocacy (to show you’re a fan or supporter!)
  • Seasonal and holiday decorations

Skin options

Shipping

We ship Australia-wide from Sydney or QLD using tracked courier services.  Contact us to get a shipping quote.  Cover for goods is optional but forgo at your own risk.

Turn-around time

Hydrodipping takes up to 2 weeks and includes adequate curing time to ensure the best quality outcome for you.  We can expedite the process to meet your schedule; this would be negotiable for an additional cost.
