With reference to what has been said so far, in the following steps of this guide there are some useful tips on How to decorate a phone case with different methods.
How to decorate a phone case?
You will need:
- Assorted colors
- Transparent protective spray
- Various enamels
- Various stickers
Apply a glitter
To carry out the work referred to in the introductory phase of this guide, first of all considering a specific model of mobile phone and/or tablet, it is necessary to buy a cover that is compatible and perhaps already colored, in one color or transparent. That said, to decorate it according to your tastes, you can opt for adhesives, glitter or paint of the color and shapes that are considered most suitable. At this point, once you have bought the cover, first of all it is advisable to wash it very carefully with cold water and neutral soap. This operation is essential to “glitter it” with a specific shape to be created, and then to be placed on the inside of the cover itself and also on the outside. Once you have obtained a corresponding cast, you can proceed with the application of the aforementioned glitter.
Fix the color
Once the operation of applying the “glitter” on the inside and outside of the new cover has been completed, it is also necessary to fix the color by spraying some hair spray. If, on the other hand, there is the intention to make it all “glittery”, then it is better to sprinkle the entire surface with transparent enamel, starting from a certain point until completing the operation. At this point, it should be emphasized that later there is also the possibility of painting the cover with a specific shape, for example by placing a stencil on it with a predefined shape or created with wood. Finally with a thin brush and with the most pleasing color.
Dry the color
After having also applied the protective spray for the “glitter” and provided the necessary finishes, before mounting the cover on the mobile phone or tablet, it is advisable to let it dry (not under heat sources) for about 30 minutes, after which it should be washed gently with cold water and soap in order to check if the “glitter” comes off at any point. In this case, the operation must be repeated once more and the same applies to the painting drying procedure.
Opt for decals
On the sidelines of this guide on how to decorate a mobile or tablet cover, it is important to underline that in addition to the method described in the previous steps, it is also possible to opt for another much faster one. Specifically, it involves fixing cold decals on the entire surface that are available in various shapes, sizes and subjects such as butterflies, flowers, geometric figures and much more. Also in this case, after having applied the aforementioned transferable figures (with simple water), the use of a hair spray or flatting (glossy or opaque) serves to protect the decal from cracks and scratches.
