Disclaimer: This is my very first instructable. It might be crappy and if it is, please bear with me and leave me a wee bit of constructive criticism. Oh yeah i am also not responsible when you screw up your own iPod.
so im jealous of the back of new zunes, right who isnt?
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Materials!!
-A sharp mind and body. ie. dont try this after drinking a whole spike energy drink or after six shots of tequelia maybe
-An iPod with a shiny back, maybe one with a matte back?
-A xacto knife
-Tape, most kinds will do, yep this mandatory
- felt tip pen, but not permanent marker
Step 2: Drawing
Draw directly onto the ipod with your felt tip. try not to make things too complicated
Step 3: Tape
I can hear you say why tape?
well there are two reasons,
-Stability, No-slip, cause stray X-acto scratches are bad.
-good to know where you already cut
and for the image i am not actually engraving boob! it is just for tutorial purposes.
Step 4: SliceCut
Start cutting. a few tips.
-maintain even pressure through out the word unless using advanced technique
-get it right the first time
-Paitence is key
one interesting idea is to just remove the letter pecies of tape and use sandpaper, steel wool or scotchbrite pads to brushfinish the letters
Step 5: Results.
Yes! This looks great in person. i think this will be a great anti-theft feature. and it is quite stylish at the same time
I also made that case, but thats another instructable...
