Talking New Cell Phone - I Swirled It!


Yesterday I bought a new cell phone. I got the Sony Walkman W580i. My other phone was over 4 years old. I'm still not all that fond of the phones that are available, but now that I've got this one I'm liking it alot more than when I was originally looking at them.

It's a slider phone, which I think is really cool. It can play mp3s and Sony's proprietary compression "mp3"s. It's also got a 2MP camera as well as a video camera. These are things my old phone couldn't do. Hell, you can even stream FM radio and XM radio to it if you want. It's also got a memory card slot where you can add extra memory. I'm going to be keeping this thing a while.

It's still kinda new I guess, so there's not alot out for it as far as accessories go. I did pick up a clear snap on case to protect it. So last night I decided that today I'd swirl it. Unfortunately, that left me no time to do my other project.

So here you go. It's swirled with every fluorescent color I've got AND has holoflake sprayed on top of it. If you look really closely in the pics below you should be able to see the flakes reflecting in the sunlight. In person it really shows up, but not too well on pictures.

What do ya think?

sweet swirl and phone... if only you had done these when the razr's were hot...
maybe you should consider making swirled cell phone skins for popular makes and models... hmm!

Cool idea, and the results look great.
I don't know if you paint your nails or not, but if you do , the next time you do it you should swirl them

peace

I think it looks great, but don't you JEM nuts ever get tired of the 80s and their swirls?

Well, I don't own a Jem so I get pretty excited over seeing swirls. As far as I'm concerned there can never be enough...as long as you use different colors each time.

I wouldn't make all my stuff that way, but here and there is pretty cool for me.

I was just having a go at you. I'm glad you like different things than I do. Honestly, the world needs for more people to have their idea of what is cool displayed more often. I'm tired of how so many guitars look the same. And you did do a magnificent swirl on that phone. I expect to see something Loch Ness Green next time.

Re: New Cell Phone - I Swirled It!


I've already got a LNG body done. I had been working on the headstock, but it's just too humid to do anything else. I might just leave it as done. I cut out a custom Ibanez logo out of MOP. I should've recessed it into the headstock first, but I didn't. Next time.... This project also has the holoflake on it. I just love holoflake. You can't really tell it's on there until the light hits it at an angle and them, BOOM, you get pulled in to the shiney goodness. LOL
