My first real case mod.. and an idea I have never seen

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
My son is 11, Im building his first real game pc, found an old case , free, but was silver.. now its what I call full moon camo.
, we had a bunch game mags sitting round.. was flipping through them .. found a bunch of cool old FPS shooter games art .
I Was wanting to paint bio hazard on the front and side.. but the idea came to me .. magazine game art .. solves a bunch of thins I wanted to do.

Im going to cut out the best shooter images I can get .. then glue to case.. and clear coat over the case to protect the paint job, and seal the graphics from being messed up.. cant wait to get this done.. gonna be so slick.. of course will be posting the pics

Looking on the net .. never have seen any done this way!

stickbombing a case has been done, but i wouldn't really call this idea a stickerbomb

if you don't believe me on the stickerbomb just do a search here on ocn and you'll see at least one case with it

Might I suggest laminating the images after cutting them out and before gluing them to the case? It'll keep the clear coat from soaking the pages...

Glue should already soak through the pages, so it would be more like clear coating paper mache than trying to clear coat paper.

So you laminate the image, lightly scuff the back of it for grip, and use contact spray to put the image on the case. Allow to dry, then clearcoat the crap out of it...
