Hi everyone,
I know this isn't strictly about nail art as such but.......
I've bought my mum a mobile phone for Xmas and the cover's horrible and plain. Rather than buy her a snazzy cover, I thought it would be cool to airbrush the one that's on there already but I'm not sure how to go about it.
Does anyone know if I can use my normal airbrush acrylic paint and then use something like a top coat over it or do you have to use an enamel kind of paint?
Any help would be really really appreciated.
Thanks
Carol

Right love...................
Take of the cover..........mask of the LCD area.....the little glass bit.........
Then use a plastic primer spray, usually grey in colour..............let it dry.....airbrush your design with airbrush paint.............let that dry.......then seal it with plastic-cote.......follow instructions on the tin...... let it all dry.........remove the masking and thats all................

Have fun............... :D

Thanks Ruth............ you're a star....... :)
I'm off to get the primer and top coat tomorrow and I'll attempt a masterpiece - though Leornado Da Vinci I'm not - but still hey ho
Thanks again
