Remember Plasti Dip? We first heard about it when Aaron blogged it here several years ago. But we had never seen anyone actually use it. When we recently admired a cheery tomato-red hook in our friend Camilla's bathroom, she said she had used Plasti Dip to transform the coral shaped hook from its original white.

We love how the new red hook stands out and takes center-stage of the white door! Plasti Dip is is an industrial coating which is designed to make the rubberized non-slip grips on tools, steering wheels, and automative parts. In this case, using traditional spray paint wouldn't have adhered very well to the porcelain. We love how Plasti Dip coats the hook perfectly, and adds a soft, velvety red, matte-rubber finish. Its hard to see this in photographs, but the finish is also pliable, and doesn't dry hard like paint.
If you're thinking of using this for a project, Camilla did warn that the fumes were strong and that like spray paint, you should use it outdoors. We can think of so many creative uses for this!
