Today I won’t show you how to put decor on a wall or so, but how to decorate a phone case in a decoden style !
You will need :
A Phone case!
Silicone ! And a silicone pistol , if needed!
In my country silicone is packaged in this manner, and its really annoying because you need a “pistol” to push the silicone out.
ooh silicone. *heuheuheu* iykwim
If you use the pistol, the silicone will come out.
Nicely shaped cake-making thingy. And a plastic bag
How is it called, I totally forgot.
what ever, onto the tutorial !!
Grab everything listed above and lets start !
First you have to cut one end of the plastic bag. But just a bit! Don’t make the hole too big. you can always make it bigger, but you can never make it smaller. I feel like this could refer to a lot of things.
Then you have to put the pipe thingy in the bag and put it through the hole. It is not supposed to fall through it!
ooh its in
Then tape the pipe thingy to the bag to secure it ! Use as much tape as you need.
Then you can put the silicone inside the bag, this can be messy sometimes, but this time it wasn’t.
put the pistol in and pusssshh *heuheuheu*
this is what the pistol looks like
Put as much in it as needed. I usually put too much in it, but thats better than having not enough, since the bag gets messy inside, and putting more in after you’ve alread started is a pain in the buttocks.
Then push the silicone through and do a few test rounds before you start putting it onto the case.
Every silicone is different, and some can be liquider than others. Mine here was really cheap and therefore not so nice,and kind of hard to push through the pipe.
Look ! it works !
Unfortunately I only had flexible cases on hand, and I needed some special plastic glue.
I need this glue.
¡If you have a hard case cover you wont’t need this glue !
Here you can see how flexible my case is. Without the glue the silicone would come straight off on the first use.
my case is flexible, which isn’t that good.
If your silicone is smoother you can do different shapes of frosting-art on your case, but mine was horrible to work with so i just made some straight lines across.
Put the silicone on !
After you have put on the silicone you can decorate the case in whatever way you like.
I have these decorations, that I made for decoden.
This is what i put on my case !
This is the design I choose.
You can either leave it like this or put glitter, rhinestones or half-pearls on it.
I decided to put half-pearls on it, to correct some mistakes I made and to fill out some spaces.
Depending on the silicone you use, it will take different drying times. Mine will probably take forever.
But this is how you do it !
Make you own phone case that is super kawaii !!
P.S. don’t forget to clean your pipe thingy ! you can throw away the bag, but the pipe thingy should be used a lot of timse. I wouldn’t recommend to use it for cakes after you have done this though.
