The Mad-Swirl is a design I stumbled upon and borrowed from other crafts.  Being the first to apply, perfect, and share the Mad-Swirl in rod building, I named the Mad-Swirl after my daughter, Maddie.  Essentially, it is very similar to hydrodipping, but you do not need all the supplies required with hydrodipping.  This just requires paint, and a bucket of water.  There is some prep depending on the medium you choose for you base material.  A Mad-Swirl can be added to grips, reel seats, blanks, sunglass frames, piggy banks, your kid’s electrical faceplates, etc..  I think you get the idea.  If you have any questions about prep or the paint, I sell the paint and I am a representative for Magic Marble Paint, so feel free to give me a shout at
