I have this pair of wide pliers that I use to make fabric wristlet keychains. They are super handy but they have a tendency to scratch the metal end that I am squeezing closed. I’ve tried to attach cloth and felt and neither worked, even as a short term solution. Then I saw this plasti dip and I am hoping it is the answer that I’ve been looking for.
How to Plasti Dip Your Tools…
Here is a picture of the plasti dip and my pliers.
The directions seem pretty easy. Find somewhere to hang your item. I used a support under my table where I did the dipping. I used an S hook to actually hang it from the support. I put a flattened box with paper to protect the floor from drips. In my opinion, this was pretty fumey so I did it outside.
Stir before dipping.
Since my pliers were wider than the container, I poured some into another container with a lid. You are to dip at a rate of 1 inch within 5 seconds. I thought that was rather specific but I took it to mean dip rather quickly and purposely.
I let some drip back into the container.
I put it on the s hook. Let dry for 30 minutes between every coat.
When you’ve completed all the coats that you wish to do, let dry for 4 hours before first use.
I had a small peak left from a drip. Other than that it was perfect.
I used a scissors to snip off the peak and I’m all done.
Pretty cool, I’ll let you know how they hold up over time.
I’m pretty happy. Next time I might draw a line and dunk to the line for a more even look.
I’m so impressed with this product.
I have a ton of Plasti Dip left. What would you Plasti Dip next?
