About 2 months ago I became known with something called dekoden. It's short for decoration denwa, which means decorating your phone. It's a Japanese thing. Anyway here's my take on the dekoden thing ^^
First up, my mobile phone:
I used a marble, a little white bow, pearls, butterfly thingy, shell, gold glitter glue and glue.
I glued it not directly onto my phone but onto see-through foil (the ones you use to cover books in to protect them) so that when I'm tired of the design, I can change it! (tip is from VioletLeBeaux: http://violetlebeaux.com/)





After that I bought some modeling paste (paste which painters use for bringing textures into acrylic paintings)
and went for a whipped cream look. I used decorating tips to create the cream effect. It dried fully after 3 days (or earlier)
It was a very boring first-aid kit, but now it looks like this:





more pictures can you find on my blog

Let me know what you think ^^

Using the modeling paste with the decorating tips is a great idea! I think your phone is cute and unique. Will using the foil as a base allow you to change the decoration when you want to? Thanks for turning me on to a new type of craft! *goes to look up more info on dekoden*

Cuuuteee! I never thought of using those glass marbles.

I used to dekoden a lot before when I was in high school/college. But when I got a job that wouldn't let me have my phone, I ended up taking all the sparkilys and jingly things off of it so I could use it discreetly. haha.
