The Philadelphia native and master behind DIY or DIE, Wayne Walker and his team are breaking ground in their development of new vaping flavors. He regards eLiquid development as "a combination of science, aroma, and food. There's NEVER been a medium like this before." Ever since getting serious about vaping years ago (when he stumbled on his father using a mechanical mod), Wayne's been pushing the boundaries of flavor ... and his impact on the DIY community is apparent.
Wayne Walker - DIY or DIE
Liquid Barn visited Wayne Walker - the creator behind DIY or DIE - in Philadelphia to talk about his start in the vaping industry, his role in the DIY community, and what goes into creating flavor profiles for vaping.
The most refined version of a Strawberry Malted Milk Wayne has created. Sweet juicy strawberry blended into a soft and creamy malted milk. The vape oozes with flavor and has a thick, rich, and soft mouthfeel perfect for flavor heads, as well as cloud chasers. Delicious right off a shake, but best after 3-4 days.
This is a recipe put together out of a need for a real tasting watermelon vape. Too many watermelons are far too artificial and almost medicinal in their flavor. Not Water-Malone. This is exactly like biting into a fresh ripe watermelon, all the way down to the texture of the pulp. When it comes to watermelon - there’s no better.
Kings Custard is Wayne's take on the traditional custard profile: thick rich vanilla, egg, dairy, and light butter, whipped up with a touch of butterscotch and caramel. This is a flavor that is as delectable as it is smooth, and it's a throwback to the "golden age" of eLiquid, when recipes were a bit more simple.
Sang Pétillant is a sparkling blood orange champagne recipe. The blood orange is exquisitely bright, sweet, and balanced masterfully next to light notes of white grapefruit and white grapes, followed by a finish of sparkling champagne. It’s been crafted with opulence in mind, and meant to be vaped immediately.
