I'll answer my own questions now Smiley Enamel paint worked fine. It seems quite similar to nail polish (/ enamel!) but took longer to dry and produced a cool raised, shiny surface. However, some of the paint dripped and I cleaned it up with nail polish remover, which worked fine except it started to dissolve the camera plastic as well!! I wiped it off with water fast but the group picture icon was smeared.

I added pink and clear rhinestones to the trigger and the objective, and some silver stickers (one silver line, four corners) which I cut to fit.

After:


I'm probably going to add black lace instead of the strap it came with.

You could also stamp images onto it using metallic ink and then spray with fixative after a while.

Do you think paint containing solvents would damage the camera in any way?

a major *bump* for you.
I just bought a Holga and am wondering the same thing. I'm thinking of trying pink metallic paint on the square part behind the objective, the kind of paint used for model airplanes and such maybe? First I thought about metallic markers and then some gloss coating, but perhaps it would look stripey.

If anyone knows what kind of paint would work on a plastic camera, please respond Smiley

It looks like the army man is hurting your ear. But they're very cool.

I just got some stamps yesterday which I ordered from www.rubbertrouble.c om . Very affordable and original, and it took less than a week to receive them (I'm "international").

You could also just put rhinestones in the corners

There are waterbased brush tip markers which work fairly well, although I guess the colours look strong. Perhaps you can find softer coloured ones - light yellow, beige and such.

or you could make personalized plates, perhaps transparent glass ones decorated with movie posters underneath?
