Simple question guy's, how long after dipping do you leave it before washing off?
The reason I ask is after just getting into dipping DIY style i'm slowly picking up small problems and solving them fast,
One thing I'm not sure about is the wash off! the few things I have dipped have turned out OK but when I wash off very small bits of film are coming away,  now is this the prep or am I washing off to soon - straight after dipping
Any help appreciated

Hi Scotty, little spots that wash off are known as pin pricks. This is normally due to slight under activation or can be dust or debris.
Where it is under activation then slow your activator pass down a little and keep your pattern well contained with dams
You should hold your work under the water for a minute or so to allow the activator to calm a little so you do not rinse of paint or pattern
