The last few times I’ve posted about deco-ing my iPhone there have been a lot of requests for tutorials. I’ve done a lot of deco tutorials over the years but I’ve never been able to do a video because usually deco-ing the thing that I film with XD

This time however I was just doing a case so I filmed the whole thing on my phone. YAY!

The video is below but here are some tips and answers to questions I get quite a lot:

What glue are you using?

2 part 5 minute epoxy. You can buy it at any hardware store, this one is from Daiso.

How long does this take?

Depending on the complexity it usually only takes a few hours.

Where do you buy the parts?

Bergamot Charms are available through my Etsy store. I buy locally at junk stores, sometimes I buy from ebay, Full Moon Deco is great for parts and run by a super nice lady.

Where did you get the clear case?

Ebay.

How are you picking up the pearls/jewels?

I use either a cuticle stick with a tiny bit of water on the end for tiny jewels or reverse tweezers for regular ones.

How long does it last?

If you use epoxy it will last a very good while especially if you take care of it. I’ve had things (cameras mostly) which have lasted for years.

What if I make a mistake?

Don’t deco directly to an item if you are worried about making mistakes, put down a layer of clear contact first. You can easily remove contact if you don’t like the final design.


It’s kind of cool seeing all of this in fast motion! If you have any other questions feel free to leave them in the comments 😀
