only one way to find out… I mean its only a dv888


#3

True but I still don’t want to ruin it…


#4

Ok so I think I’m going to just try spray painting it white. But I don’t just want it white. I want to add some splash. What type of paint should I use to just splash it on?


#5

I cant tell you my secret, but mask, dont splash


#6

What is masking?


#7

Covering and protecting from paint

Im the painting expert here! Lol…

First, make sure your spray paint says “Metal” on it. Also mask of the bearing seat and keep the axle in so paint won’t go through the axle hole…

Splash? Any paint, just make sure it’s acrylic.

I use Crafting paint…

Get a small thin paintbrush and dip it in the paint, then splatter it on, get creative Splat, Splat, Splat!!

Then add a clear coat if you please so the paint won’t chip or come off…

PM me if you want me to do it for you, (check my thread), or if you have any questions…

Creating a speckle/splashy effect with spray paint is painfully easy. Just pull back on the nozzle as opposed to pushing it down.

Grab a few sheets of paper or something you don’t mind getting paint all over and try it out.


#18

To make a speckle you stand back and lightly push down and it will squirt out paint…


#19

Ok I might try that. I’m thinking a coat of white, and then a neon green and neon orange speckle.

Okay you told me a secret, now heres mine:

Take a yoyo.

Strip it.

Paint it a color

Let it dry

Burn a candle and Drizzle wax onto the yoyo, or use cut up cursive stick on letters

Paint it another color

Let it dry

Peel off what you put on it

BAM!

Instant splash
