I love that this post is right after another post about glitter,
but if you know me then you understand.
I'm kind of a glittery person.
basically everything I own is a victim of rhinestone-ing or glittering
including my phone case!!
everyone is always asking me how I make my phone case, and I just got another one so I thought this time I will put it up here rather than explaining it every time.
it's very easy though, I swear.
supplies: mod modge (I use the orange satin finish one for this), glitter (I like recollections extra fine, or martha stewart brand), a paintbrush, hairspray
first, mod-podge the case. only do the back though
(we'll go on the sides in a second)
sprinkle the glitter onto the wet mod podge
when you have it good and covered,
tap it to get the loose glitter off.
now find something to prop the case on ...
(I usually use a little aspirin case or a small food container)
coat the sides (one at a time) with mod podge and glitter them
just as you did on the back
let the case dry for a while.
I usually leave mine for at least an hour.
when it is dry, rub over the glittered case to get the loose and almost loose glitter off. if this makes a lot of gaps or the glitter is very very rough, mod podge the case again and glitter another coat on.
when you are happy with the glitter, the big secret: hair spray.
yes. seriously. that's how you finish it so that none of the glitter will come off.
hair spray the glittered case (with lots of hairspray, don't be shy) and let it dry.
I repeat this and ultimately spray the phone three times, but I'm kind of crazy.
It doesn't get sticky (not even in Arizona summer heat)
it holds the glitter on,
and it makes it smooth!!
ok sorority sisters ... I love you ... now stop asking me how I glitter everything :)
