    Here are some of the blue colors. Keep in mind these are not painted on cases that I am selling, these are dummy faceplates. As you can tell they are not as smooth.

    This is mainly to show the blue colors that I have.
    Hmm...I'm kind of digging the 2nd blue. I'm looking forward to seeing a picture or a finished plate.

    Hi Becky! I don't know if anyone asked but do you do 8120 cases? If I buy one and send it can you paint it? You do great work. I can't decide between the pink or the apple green!!! I love them!

    I agree Benzworn...Becky is very talented!! All the colors look sweet (the green is an eye-catcher)

    Becky, you should think about creating a web page to display your work and from there people can place orders..that'll be a good idea I'll stay tuned

    Hi,

    I wish I could do the pearl cases but I cant, the screen is different. I actually had a white pearl until I decided to get the curve. When you take it apart the color on the top of the screen is a part of the screen. So if you were to paint it it would look really weird. I honestly thought of everything possible but unless you want the phone to be a couple different colors (at least 2) it wouldnt be worth it.

    Let me know though. Take care.

    Yesterday I purchased flat black, and a bright white color. I painted swatches and will definitely be painting cases when I get my order in. I will definitely post the final product. Thanks!!

    Got the paint and waiting for the case. I actually got a clear coat that is flat too since there needs to be some type of protection. I think the test that I did turned out good. I will post once I can get my crappy camera to take decent pics.

    Thanks, you guys are sweet. I hope that they only get better once I do more and more and learn the tricks and stuff.

    My husband is a web developer and he is working on a site but its time consuming ... but definitely on its way. More info to come

    Becky, the pink case you did is absolutely stunning.
    Looking at all your pics, esp the back of the phone, they all have this incredible "leather" look to them; just fabulous. For a minute there I thought I was looking at the back of a BOLD!!
    I'm itching for you to do 8330's. I already know what color I want.

    I dont have any 8330 cases. The one that I did was my verizon curve, which is how all this started. I bought it and painted it and then decided that I didnt like VZ and had to send back my phone. I ended up finding someone here to trade me (thank you!). So I figured I would purchase the cases that you can buy and paint them and see what happens.

    I did find someone internationally (a company that my husband works with) that can sell me some but they are expensive and I would have to get 50 at a time which is a lot since right now this is just a hobby. But I am waiting for that person to get back to me with the shipping info. If I get the 50 then I will have them for sale if you want it painted, and i might sell some as is for those that want to be creative on their own. So I should know anytime now and I will post something with the details. Keep an eye out if your interested.

    I'm ready when you are, I see the white and apple green up there. PM me so I can send out my spare housing and I will wait to get back the other housing when you have them in.

    LOL- nope I'm a Nanny and a student, but I look after infants so they sleep a good chunk of the day, and lectures are about as interesting as having my leg sawed off so I fiddle with my website (canadianmilitarygirlfriends.ca) while I'm bored...it's user-supported so I can only make it as good as the girls who use it want it (maybe once I'm no longer a student I'll spring for a better hosting package but for now 5$ a month is about all I can afford!) but I'm proud of it...

    I'm so torn on what colour I want Becky!!
