Step 1: You Will Need
- Old Diaper Genie or White Trash Can
- Silver spray paint
- Painter's tape
- Paint brushes
- Modge Podge
- Craft paint
- Printed decals
- Painter's paper (or old wrapping paper like I used)
- Drop cloth (Dollar store shower curtains work great too!)
Step 2: Prep Prep Prep!
* Be sure to use paper as well as tape so that the rest of your droid stays white ;)
Step 3: Paint That Droid!
Lay down a drop cloth of some kind, and spray paint the top of your droid. I did 2 layers.
Let dry overnight.
Step 4: Find and Print Decals
There are MANY free sites with printable decals for your lovable droid. You can purchase them of-course, but printing them is FREE. You can be as specific as you like, I chose to do more of an interpretation (hard core fans please don't hate me) ;)
Step 5: Cut Out and Modge Podge!
Cut out your decals and Modge Podge them to your droid.
Step 6: Details!
I chose to paint the details, because I like to paint, but you could very easily use decals as well.
I did it free-hand, but you could trace your details first, if you prefer.
To make your droid more resistant to ware and tear, you can cover him in a layer of clear protectant spray as well.
Step 7: Enjoy Your Rescued Droid!
You did it! You made something awesome from garbage! You are an earth hero! And this droid could be used for a great many things!
- Party Prop
- Shoe Storage
- Dog Toys Storage
Keep your imagination alive, and the possibilities are endless!
