Introduction: 5$ DIY Phone Cover/case
My phone looked kind of old because the back cover opaintstarted peeling off. So in the spirit of making I decided to make a custom phone case/cover/back plate to complement my love for iron man.
Spray paint x 2
I had everything so the build was 0$ for me
Step 1: Prepare, and Spray Paint
Picture your design in your head, and think of the colour scheme. There will be two colours, one is the background, and the other is the colour of the object.
First spray paint a few thin coats of the colour you want your object to be in. In my case the object would be in red so my first coat was in red.
In the next step we prepare the design
Step 2: Design
While the first coat is drying, take making tape and lay it on a cutting surface. Then cut your shape on to masking tape. This part will be what the final finished piece will look like. Look at the above picture no.1
Take another piece of masking tape, and dirty it. What I mean is that stick it onto random objects so it looses some of its stickiness. Stick this semi sticky piece of tape onto the design, and pull the design onto the semi sticky piece of tape.
Now place this piece of tape on the phone, and transfer the design onto the phone. Since the transfer tape is only semi sticky, the transfer tape should easily peel of.
If this part confuses you, then look at the picture 2 onwards, or drop a comment down below
Step 3: Final Coat
Spray the final background coat over the whole phone. Since you have covered the designed part with masking tape, theat colour will remain.
Peel of the masking tape only when all the paint is dry. sugest waiting day for the paint to dry.
As a final coat add some clear lacquer on to the back plate to seal everything off and to give the design some depth
That's it happy building. Feel free to drop any comments below
