camera revamp

Monday, July 19, 2010 2:39 PM Posted by ckscribbles
A while ago i got this camera at a flea market.
well the leather started falling off of it and it looked like it was real dirty underneath. I took alcohol to the dirty parts after ripping most of the leather off. The alcohol took off most of the dirt, dried glue and grime then i dried it with a clean towel. I used the leather parts that were on there to create a template and then i just cut & glued. Now i have a cute unique camera that looks like it belongs to me
I'm proud of the way it came out. I really do love the look of it. If this paper ever comes off i will probably just recover (or paint it) in a new way. I love that this isn't to permanent but permanent enough that if i want it to stay this way it most likely will!

Have any of you guys revamped an old camera, i would love to see pictures!

I hope everyone is having a happy Monday. I have to go to work in about 2 hours, but i don't really mind seeing as i haven't been there in almost a week!
