  • How to make a mixed media. Phone Throne Art - Step 1
    Step 1

    This is my phone cover for my BlackBerry curve, its lime green (one of my fave colours) and is quite durable as I never have a phone for more than 5 months. I always find a way (not on purpose) to break or disable my ohone hehe. Now, take your cover and clean it by wiping it with a damp cloth. Make sure its dry before painting.

  • Step 2

    Asseble your materials, and try not to mess with the paint on your bed like i do hehe. Now try do draw on the cover with a pencil (oulining) the image you want on your cover .

  • Step 3

    Paint it with the acrylics and as many layers as needed as it will show through, depending on the quality paint thats being used. :)

  • How to make a mixed media. Phone Throne Art - Step 4
    Step 4

    And VOILA! This is how mine turned out. "VISSIE" means "FISH" in English (Im Afrikaans, its a South African language) and i like roses! ;)
