Hi guys.

I'm about to load up my cart and make my first purchase. Then see if I can learn this technique.

My question is simply, how many cans of activator should I realistically expect to use in my first 5 meters of film?

I will be using the digital desert camo film and dipping n a plastic tub to start with if that is a factor.

Also, and advise on base coats and clear coats would never be refused...

Thank you peeps.

Mike.

Hi Mike,activator does go a long way but the digital camo is a wide film so I would probably play safe and get 2 cans. An extra can is £12. if you find out you need another can and then have to pay postage again then it would cost you  and extra £8.50 on top.

Thank you Hydro-T.

I decided to reduce my initial outlay at the last minute and went for the tan and black camo and one can as its half the width. 
Just until I decide if I am actually any good at this stuff.

If I can do it, then I will be ordering the digital and probably other films too.
I haven't even started yet and can already see everything in the house getting dipped.....

Thanks for your help,

Mike.
