Revamp your old iPod | DIY Tutorial

45 notes Reblog Comments

My (super) old iPod nano

image

Old and boring, right? So I decided to revamp it since I was super bored a while ago (so impulsive) ! 

***

MATERIALS:

• Spray Paint (True Value at around P100+)
• Sticker Gems (Japan Home at P88 a sheet)
• Your old iPod
• Newspaper 
• Masking Tape
• Artist Knife (National Bookstore) — Will make your life easier but a regular cutter will do if you don’t have this.

image
• Some courage and a lot of patience ( I was so nervous the entire time!!!) 

***

STEP 1:

Ask yourself : “Am I ready to do this???” (☞゚∀゚)☞ if yes, take your masking tape and cover all the areas you don’t want to have paint on. Don’t forget to cover ALL openings (earphone jack, charger slot, etc) as well! Don’t ruin your iPod (´°̥̥̥̥̥̥̥̥ω°̥̥̥̥̥̥̥̥`)

Take your time and don’t rush! Use your artist knife or cutter to trace out the screen and navigation button. Be as gentle as possible and DON’T trace heavily as you might damage your screen/iPod. Be very, very careful and precise as possible.

***

STEP 2:

Once you’re done masking the areas, it’s time to paint 。◕‿◕。 wipee ! I bought this over a year ago at True Value. You can also buy spray paint in Ace Hardware/National Bookstore/Office Warehouse.

Please work outdoors. Spray paint is toxic  (✖╭╮✖) If you can, please wear a mask while spray painting. Also use old newspaper on your work area to avoid making a mess! 
***
STEP 3:
Wait for it to dry (around 2-3 hours or overnight to be sure). Be patient. Drink milk. Watch a movie. Read a book.
***
Step 4:
Carefully peel off masking tape! If the paint is still soft and comes off with the tape, put it back and let it dry for another hour or so.

You can clean any excess paint with a cotton bud with some on it acetone (in moderation) 
***
STEP 5:
Now you can add your sticker gems (or with any other deco stuff you prefer)
image
DO NOT add to much and leave some space for your thumb (round navigation button)
