Step 8: Now You Can Paint

Paint - Put the drop cloth down before you begin painting.
  • Box
    • Be creative and paint the box any way you would like. You can use a sponge brush or a paint brush. Get good paint coverage so only the colors show up.
    • You may need two coats.
  • Clear plastic cup
    • Paint the interior of the clear cup as that will be your lens.
    • A clear cup may have to be painted twice if the paint is not thick enough.
Very cute!
Thanks, it was a lot of fun to make too.
By adding a film roller and light-proofing the right portions of the box this can easily be made into a functioning pinhole camera/backpack. I like the idea.
OOoooohh, now you have me thinking about that. I will have to look into that. Thanks!
