Introduction: Turning a Beat Up Backpack to Design Object
This is a backpack I got from my brother. It was in poor condition. The only way to make it usable was to add something extra to it.
Step 1: Covering Seams
I wanted to keep some of the original red colour to the bag so I covered the zippers and other material with tape.
Step 2: Making Shapes
I also wanted to use the original colour to make some shapes to the bag.
Step 3: Before Painting
Just a flick of the bag before I started painting.
Step 4: Painting.
Spray painting is simple and fast. Remember to keep distance from the surface you are painting to avoid drops and colour problems. Its probably a good idea to use gloves as well.
Step 5: This Is What the Zipper Looks Like After Painting.
Step 6: Detail.
I got carried away and went on painting some details.
Step 7: Final Product!
5 buck backpack converted to a design artefact for 5 bucks (spray paint and tape). Remember to let it dry well as it will stink of spray paint if it is not dryed properly. Have fun!
