Any experience with paint marker? I've tryed it on a tiny little space and had troubles getting rid of it which is a good sign I guess. I'd rather buy a paint marker (pink  Smiley ) than a nail polish as it's see through so the original gold cover (I have Nokia 3510) would look nice under that, and I could do something with the rest of the marker (as I really never use nail polish).

someone's bf just painted her blackberry sparkly pink. i can't remember where i saw it but if you do a search? she talked about what he used and it sounded very durable.

that was me!! http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=118838.0

Be aware that the paint he used is ACTUAL CAR PAINT - which is very toxic and has to be handled carefully until it's fully cured. and has to be painted in an area with lots of ventilation. If you want, PM me and I can send you a link to the paint company. It's made by House of Kolor (I have it spelled wrong in my original post). Also - it's not cheap - I'm not even looking at the credit card bill, 'cause I don't want to know how expensive.

Thank you I've seen that post earlier (that was what gave me the idea to paint my phone)  awsome job by the way, but as I said before it's an old phone it can die anytime (and after that I want to buy a new one) so I don't want to spend a fortune on the paint. But thanx for offering I may need that information other time. I think I buy some nail polish or paint marker on Thursday after my exam and try it on a tiny bit. (Accidentally I found some red one but it's a cheap dollar store one  (in fact 100 HUF store in my country  Cheesy) and I could easily crack it up with my nails. SO I'll sand the phone a bit use a fancy nail polish and sand it with that kinda sandpaper what supposed to make your nails shiny. What do you think?

I had a motorola V300 that had a removable front and back, I painted the front like a turtle shell and the back said my full name but I did it so it looked like "TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES".  it was awesome and I never had any problems with the paint coming off.

I painted it with model car paint, I got a huge set of it that was pretty inexpensive from roberts or michaels. And I also covered it with some sort of seal, I can't quite remember, I'll ask my friend when I get a hold of her but it was just a basic sealer that you'd use with that kind of paint.

enamel should work...i guess its latex enamel...it comes in spray cans but im not sure whether it comes in pints or not. but yuo can use tape or paper or something to mask of that parts you dont want to be painted so that you can use the spray kind. good luck!

not too sure, because it depends on what the cover is made of, but acrylic enamel paint should work.... but since you already painted it it's not like it matters...  Smiley
