the project took 3 days. im pretty happy how it came out although im still waiting for the paint to fully dry.
i sanded the phone down
painted using krylon fusion white satin
dried another 24 hrs
i used a xacto knife to mask the parts i was not going to paint
i was going to leave the buttons unpainted. its pretty easy just get a pieace of painters tape and stick it on then cut along the grooves. i had done this before when i first had painted the phone black but that did not work out. IF you dont sand your phone it will peel off. next week when the paint has dried fully im going to use the knife to cut out the excess paint along the small areas.
make sure you cover the screen before you begin sanding.
you should probably not do too many coats unless you sand the phone down a lot, one coat for paint and clearcoat is enough, you dont want the phone looking bloated.you should probably tape off the buttons because when you press them the corners wont chip. use a knife to cut into the grooves.just stick a piece of tape on the speaker whole and stuff it.i will be cutting out the bluetooth light and the charge light in as soon as it dries although they shine through just fine. i also had sanded down that rubber piece on the back because it kept getting lost. for best results make sure you let phone dry alot 4 days later and the paint can still ding easily but it does not chip which is good. ill keep you guys updated.
