Thanks for the idea of using model paints. Is the phone fully useable during the 30-60 day curing period? Would using the phone or putting it in a bag hurt the paint job at that point? I don't want to use model paints if it puts my phone out-of-use for 1 or 2 months... That's crazy!
I have a flip phone that I think looks like an alligator head. That sounds weird, but it really does. I want to paint it green on the outside and add eyes for him. On the inside around the keys I'll paint him a big mouth.
Just to be safe, I'd be careful about setting it in things for a week or two, just to be safe, the phone is fully usable, but like oil paints it'll be dry to the touch but you can still mess it up a shade.
