I decided that the laptop I had been given looked a little plain, but it did have a nice flat surface so i thought I would paint it.
what you will need:
various colored paints, I used acrylic paints but you could use spray paint
Compressor and airbrush, if you're using acrylic paints
Clear Lacquer , the stuff you use on cars is fine
Small Paint brush
Paper and pencil
Transparency sheet for OHPs
Step 1: Get your design together
you need to think about what you want to put on it, I wanted to stencil the grim reaper, I copied a picture i saw on the net on to a sheet of plain paper.
next i put a transparency over the top and traced round the outside of the design using the OHP pen, use the bulldog clip to hold the transparency in place while your tracing the original design.
then using a hobby knife i cut round the traced areas carefully and pulled out the bits I don't want.
I already I have an idea for the background which will be done freehand
