I wanted to have some vintage cameras decorated with my new designs for my booth at CHA. I covered three cameras with my new washi tapes, but I still wanted to figure out a way to transfer my other patterns to the cameras. I remembered Jonathan Fong showing me a wonderful product called Craft Attitude last summer. I thought this was a perfect application for this, and was super excited to try it out. This was my first time using the products, and it was everything I hoped for. Here is the step-by-step on how I created the cameras.
I painted the cameras with white spray paint made for plastic.
I printed my designs using my inkjet printer directly on the film. While I was letting it dry a little bit, I made a rough template for the camera out of paper.
I carefully laid the film on the painted surface and worked it until it conformed to the shape. I think the fresh paint helped it stick, and I used a glue stick and hair dryer to make sure it had good adhesion all around.
Once the face of the camera was covered, I cut away some of the extra film to make it easier to wrap around the sides. I used a glue stick and hair dryer again to finish it off.
I was surprised at how well it turned out, and I think I chose a hard first project to try it on. I used the Scrapbook Attitude, but I think any of the Craft Attitude products will work.
I also used it on the typewriter in the post below.
