Ok, so all the pink laptops were really weak. I guess pink=toy in the minds of manufacturers. So what's a pink lovin' gal to do? Enter: Spraypaint.
I was going to take my laptops cover off, but I did not want to risk messing up my built-in web cam, so I just very crefully taped it off.
The I sprayed a coat of white KILZ. After that I put about 4 coats of a super high-gloss tulip pink. 1 coat of micro-fine silver glitter spray, and about 5 coats of clear.
I buffed the shine off my original cover to help the paint stick better, and I lightly sanded each paint layer before applying the next, this helps a LOT.
I am thinking about applying some super sparkly Swarovski crystal rhinestones to make an "M" on the front (For "Michele"), but not sure yet. Its been done for about 2 weeks, so its good and dry now, but I think I'll let it cure a little longer before doing the stones.
Please ignore the chihuahua ear poking out of the blanket. HAHA! you can't ignore it now!!!
Here is a close-up:
And here is an extreme close-up:
This picture is terrible, but you can see the size of the glitter in it.
If you want better instructions, lemme know! It was fun. Its also pretty durable, this is the second one I've done and the 1st is over 3 years old. It doesn't have a single chip and only minor scratches in the paint.
C + C + Q welcome!
