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!
