Watching Objects Getting Dipped in Paint Is Sublime

It’s been a hard couple of weeks. You deserve something nice, and today that something is a bunch of sculptures getting coated in tiny galaxies of paint.

Paint-dipping is a process for covering an object in swirls and splotches of color that would be difficult to achieve by hand. Anything that looks sufficiently like a middle schooler’s idea of an acid trip? Probably dipped.


The process involves floating paint on top of another, heavier liquid and submerging the object. All the paint wraps around and sticks like a psychedelic one-of-a-kind soup skin.

Cool? Most definitely. But more importantly, a colorful reprieve from the outside world.
