This afternoon we shared our excitement for finding a can of Plasti Dip paint. Thus far, we had only seen it in paint cans, so the discovery was a good one. Once we arrived home we noticed something unexpected on the cans labeling that we had never noticed on the smaller "dip-style" cans...

Although we've coated many things in Plasti Dip before and have grand plans for its use in the future, never did its use on electronics cross our mind. Using this wonderful rubbery substance to deaden sound or as insulation is a fabulous idea (and far more practical than painting a ceramic figure rescued from the thrift store) and could easily put a stop to any shake from items placed on your entertainment center that a sub-woofer might cause.

Likewise, it would be an inexpensive way to coat the back of a door to your band room (Rock Band can get a little crazy you know) or you could coat the inside of a cabinet or desk where you're doing a little sound recording.

How could you put this can to use? Let us know in the comments below!
