    I've decided to pick up another hobby (in addition to paper crafting): Painting!

    It started off with my urge to paint my DS Lite. Instead, I ended up hand painting the clear case for the DS Lite. I didn't want to risk taking the DS Lite apart and possibly damaging it. I was somewhat content with the finished product (sorry, no picture), but I decided to be a little more adventurous.

    I took an old GBA SP that I had laying around and decided to take it apart and paint it. I didn't take pictures of the process, but here is the finished product. I used a textured metallic gray for the main color and a metallic gold for the triforce.

    After painting the GBA SP, I decided I'd take it a bit further and find other stuff to paint. I noticed that I had a plain white Guitar Hero III Wii faceplate. I made two stencils out of card stock using the same mario image. I first sprayed on the base coat in textured metallic gray. Then, I spray painted one layer of metallic blue using one stencil cutout. Finally, I added on the final layer in white. I think I'm going to use contact paper next time because I had to tape down the bits and pieces of the card stock and it was very time consuming and sloppy. I ended up having to touch up the image by hand. All in all, I'm happy with the finished product as well and I feel like I'm getting the hang out it.
