I'm gonna combine these two projects into one thread, and I hope there isn't a thread on this already.. I searched for it, but couldn't find anything..  Cause I haven't made very many posts yet, it'll only let me post links to the pictures. Sorry!

The first project is two belts I made for me and a friend. I made the design in photoshop, printed it out, cut out the design using an exacto-knife, taped it on and then used spray paint. It was surprisingly easy, and after about 2 years later they'e still holding up pretty well, they just look a bit worn-in and loved..




The second project is a tin lunchbox I made for a friend's birthday. I bought a plain tin lunchbox at Michael's (the craft store, about $10). Same process except this time I used that sticky book-cover stuff (can buy it at Michael's or Staples), it's adhesive, clear and comes in a roll. It sticks to the surface of the lunchbox better and stayed in place during the 2 coatings of spraypaint I had to use. I also used special spraypaint for metal. Overall, it turned out pretty well.
