About Liquid Transformations

Liquid Transformations was founded in 2010 by owner Steve Waters. Prior to opening LT Steve was working in the mobile electronics and vehicle customization industry. Steve saw a need in Spokane for a company that could completely transform the look of a customers vehicle. Steve Waters was joined in 2014 by his business partner Steve “Mac” McDougall. Together their mix of talents, shared vision and dedication have turned LT from a hidden gem into the “go to” shop for quality custom coatings in Spokane. Liquid Transformations was founded on the bedrock idea that quality product and customer service are the essential tenants on which any good business are built. To this day Steve and Mac continue to take great pride in turning their customers visions into reality.

What We Do

Hydro Printing

Hydrographic printing is a highly specialized coating process. It is primarily a painting and dipping process. This process allows us to apply highly defined intricate prints and patterns to virtually any three dimensional object of your choosing. This process can be applied to but not limited to, Metal, Glass, Plastics and Wood. If we can paint it, we can print it.


Cerakote is a Polymer-Ceramic Composite coating that can be applied to metals, plastics, polymers and wood. The unique formulation used for Cerakote ceramic coating enhances a number of physical performance properties including abrasion/wear resistance, corrosion resistance, chemical resistance, impact strength, and hardness.

Vinyl Stickers

We have a high quality vinyl plotter. We can make banners, club stickers, or personalized one off stickers. We can integrate these onto your item, clear coat over them, or use them as stencils for additional painted custom touches. Flames over Skulls are an amazing looking example of these elements used together. The sky is the limit!

Around here we like to say our goal is to “Make It Yours.”™
We do that by customizing your personal items to your taste and preferences. The customization process known as Hydrographic Printing, or Water Transfer Printing, is how we get you there. We have perfected this process by using our depth of technical and mechanical expertise. We mix in a bit of artistic taste and talent, and voila, your project is “Transformed.”
