Off topic painting ?

I'm wondering if I can sand this otter box down to be able to paint it red... The one I will use is blue..... So from blue to red I'm hoping. Wouk this be possible or a waste of time?

If so what do you recommend using?

Re: Off topic painting ?

Well anything's possible with enough time, money, patience, motivation, and of course beer.

Use some high grit sandpaper, rough it up best you can, then spray it with some outdoor gloss red paint, then spray a few coats of clear on it to protect the paint.

I'm sure if you dropped it on concrete the paint would crack or be shot but every day wear and tear shouldn't mess it up too much.

They sell red ones. That would be so much easier. I only know this because they have them in the store I work for.
