That's fine if you wanna take pictures of it and hang it on a wall for all to see
FYI the cooler and crisper you make a paintjob look, the worse it functions.
All those items that come in nice clean multicam? Yeah it stands out like a sore thumb in the bush, too shiny, too defined.
You need something blended, shaded and dirty to blend in with nature, like so;

You're still going to have to do a base coat . That hydro film needs a light surface because of the opacity of the film . True that you are saving time when you dip your parts but it also probably requires a good amount technique , experience and technical aptitude to get right .
I enjoy the results of hydro dipping. I was looking into hydro dipping as well but there's limitations with this process also.
For me I would like the ability to make my own film patterns . That requires an expensive printer. And you pattern frequency is static , you can't scale the film if you want the bigger Camo patterns . And from what I have seen, most of the web retailers you can purchase dip kits from have the same limited selections of films.
These patterns in my mock ups , can be made with the traditional spray paint .
For me I would use the plot cutter I have access to at work to cut vinyl stencils. This way I can scale and modify the Camo .The cutter can cut pretty good detail and you get nice clean lines as opposed to cutting by hand. You also have more option in terms of custom colors

Either way there's no half assing

I find painting a base coat not a big deal, prep is not so bad, its creating the pattern on the items that is difficult, I have had a few things dipped, it holds up really well, the valve cover on my drift car is dipped wood grain (since I'm classy like that) and with the high heat of the turbo right beside the valve cover and vibration it still looks brand new with no discolouration, I don't think that spray paint would hold up the same.

edit* that gun above my post is dope!
