Picture of Canucks Hydrodip/Paint Job

A buddy of mine asked me to refurbish his mask for him. He was a huge Vancouver fan so I went with this design. It is a combination of Hydrodipping, masking, and painting. Hope you guys enjoy it!

Step 1: The original base white mask

I gave it a light sanding with 200 grit paper. Then I cleaned it up with wax and grease remover.

I live in a small town south of Port Huron michigan. There is a company called warwick masks, that does a lot of the goalie helmets for the nhl. Do a Google search for them. seriously the shop is tiny and a lot of people in the town probably don't have any idea that these great helms are made right here...

That would be so cool!

I would absolutely love to do helmets for NHL goalies. But apparently there are some certifications you need to get before you can be allowed to paint pro helmets. Something about making sure the integrity of the mask being intact after the process is done. I will definitely be looking into said certifications though!

That's beautiful work! Your attention to detail really makes it look like a professional job. I did not realize that one could get such great results hydrodipping in one's garage. Now I have to find something that i want wood-grain on! One question: did you remove the hardware or mask over it? Those snaps look perfect, but they also look like they might still be attached in the first few steps...

i masked each of the snaps off because they are riveted in. The cage is held on with screws so that was easy to remove. And yeah, hydrodipping is not a difficult process once you get the right set up. I am still working out of a poly stock tank but at the moment I am building a self-heating and filtering 500 gallon tank. Thank you so much for your comment. Glad you liked it!

Hey thanks!

As a Canuck fan myself, I like how this looks. Too bad you couldn't take photos of the hydrodip, that's the really interesting part.

I hope to be doing much more of it so I will do my best to get some documentation. Glad you like it though!
