Does an European alternative to Plasti-Dip exist?

A single can of imported Plasti-Dip in my country (Bosnia) sets me back way more than I'd like it to. Does anyone know any alternatives to it? Appreciate it.

Is plasti-kote enamel brush on paint transparent? Answered

I have some plasti-kote enamel brush on paint and I was wondering if it's transparent? I want to paint it on some bottles, but I want it to look like stained glass and not a huge block of paint, if that makes sense. I have tried the tinting trick with the mod podge, water and food coloring, but after i baked it, it still peeled off and I need something that will be a little more durable for the project I have in mind. I had these and found them when I was cleaning up my crafting area and though why not try them, but I don't want to waste a bottle since i sort of need all of them for the project I'm working on.  Any help on this would be great.

Building custom computer case with metal or plastic.

I recently saw a compilation of images of a bunch of custom computer cases. They was amazing looking cases too. Anyway, I really want to make my own case, but, I'm not as to how I should go about doing so with metal or plastic, I thought about making it with wood (something I know more about), but, I figured wood would attract a lot of dust and generate a lot more heat. What I'm looking to do is trying to find a way I could "warp" metal into 3-dimensional designs, I was hoping for something Victorian looking design. If that wasn't possible, I thought about plastic, although, I know nothing about creating with plastic. Can anyone give me any information about how I could go about this?
