I live in Spokane, WA and while reading through the local boards, I came across a group of guys who run this business called Liquid Transformations. I checked out their website and the quality of work they did looked awesome, so I took my lunch break one day to go down and check out their shop.

I originally went to meet SGT member RLHas, whom I had been talking with, he was out, but I was greeted by Steve Waters and the rest of the team there. I told him I saw their website and was really interested in the custom hydrographic printing/painting services they did and Steve was nice enough to take me behind the counter and show me around the shop.

I felt like a kid in a candy store! There were uppers, lowers, foregrips, mags, fully disassembled firearms, car and bike parts, all getting treated with insane detail. Steve walked me through the hydrographic printing process, showed me the prints, explained how they put them in the chemical bath (live streaming "dip camera"), and demonstrated how detail oriented everything was. I had to put my eye dam near over the seam to be able to tell there was even one there in most cases.

Not only do they do all the custom painting and printing, but LT is also a fully operational FFL with gunsmith (RLHas). So if you're in the Spokane area and need a place on the North East side to do transfers and tune ups, it's a pretty convenient place to go (just a few blocks East from Francis and Nevada).

Everyone there was extremely nice and approachable and very passionate about the work they do. There may be other businesses in the region that do work similar to LT, but I highly doubt that they can match the quality or array of services offered. These guys are one of those "diamond in the rough" businesses that not many people are very aware of, but they definitely should be.

I look forward to heading back over there in the near future with my video camera and getting a chance to talk to all these guys again and show off all the cool work they do on my youtube channel. So if you get a chance, check them out or stop on by if you're in the area, you won't regret it!

Most of the work looks like those pencils we had in the 80s that had multicolor paint dribbles. Not that this is a bad thing, just a random comment on what it looks like. I am all for getting away from the black/green/brown military and camo colors in favor of some pimpage.

It looks like they do very nice work. Aside from finding RealTree camo appealing on a few firearms I'm mostly into solid colors, though. I have a few Duracoated pistols. I'd hate to get one scratched if I sprang for the cost of some of the more intricate patterns.
