Sounds like you got it figured out. Good Luck, can't wait to hear how they come out. A few months ago I contacted a few of the major manufacturing companies who sell the products you will need the do "Water transfer printing", which is what they call the technique used to dip skulls.I wanted to get set up and possibly practice on a dozen or so, in different patterns, and display them at a friends hunting and fishing store. EVERY company was tight lipped and would not offer any info, unless I bought their "entry" level set -ups which the cheapest ran about $7000.00. I explained to them that I just needed to figure a few things out about the process, but they still would not budge. I did find some of the companies that would sell me the camo patterns, the activator, But I still needed to learn the proper temperature of the water, exactly how long to keep the skull in the water, and the other "little" things that matter most. Anyway, if you search "water transfer printing" on youtube, there is a few videos, here they are. I'm leaning more and more towards the DIY kit, because it may be able to answer the few questions I still have. Have Fun!
