Step 1: Supplies and Tools

  • Phone Case or Cover
  • Paint (water based recommended for easy clean up.)
  • Paint Brushes
  • Drop tarp.

Images in this Instructable do not show a drop tarp to protect work surface. Lesson learned! Highly recommended you use a drop tarp to protect work area from paint splatter and save you lots of time on clean up.

Step 2: Remove Phone From Case

Be sure to remove your phone from case before working.

Step 3: Prepare Work Space

It is recommend that you do this outdoors away from pavement and furniture. Sometimes your splatting gets out of control. Why? Because it is sooooo... much FUN!

No need to get paint where it does not belong. As mentioned earlier, use a drop cloth under your cell case to catch all the over splat!

Step 4: Pick Paint Colors

We used a rainbow of colors on our project. Choose the colors that best fit your personal style.

Step 5: First Color

Dip the paintbrush into the darkest colored paint.

Step 6: Flick It!

Flick your brush like you're playing tennis at an angle to splatter the paint on the phone case.

Step 7: More Color!

Move on to then next color in your spectrum. Remember to start with darker colors and graduate to brighter colors. Progressing from Dark to Bright will give the best visual effect.

Step 8: Repeat All Colors

Repeat the process through all the colors until you are satisfied.

Step 9: Let Dry

Once you are happy with your design. Let dry in sun for about 30 minutes or until dry.

Step 10: Replace Phone

After you are certain the paint is dry, place cover back onto the phone.

Step 11: Before and After

WoW! What a transformation!

You can use any kind of phone case for any type of phone. You can also use any type of paint. This product was made to bling up your plain old clear phone case. Hope you enjoyed this and tell your friends to check it out!

I think the clear case looked better. Neat idea, though.

I really love the idea of taking a clear phone case, and adding some color to it! Love the effects, and the colors are just so vibrant! What you can also try doing is using fabric and Fabric Mod Podge in place of the paint; just a suggestion!
