dipping Odroid Advance's Casing in pink paint water to tint it??

Post by blueagent »

can i just to buy regular "pink" model kit paint, pour it into a small pool of water, stirred it thoroughly, then place the clear plastic casing of the "odroid advance" face down in the pink water and then let the plastic absorb the pink color so it turned into a slightly transparent pink casing?

i know there is a regular way to tint clear plastic but i'm a dude and its just too complicated for me, also i never painted model kits before, and i only know how to dip easter eggs in paint water back in elementary school, after that i failed/skipped art class till high school graduation, so i don't want the regular tint way......i just want to do it simple like this, so is it possible? even if this method suck as long as i can get it to turn a little pink, then i'm happy.

thank you so much for taking your time in reading this and letting me know!

I've not seen any one who sold a customized case.

There was a post a few years ago (and a youtube video) on how to color the transparent shell: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qsCsUe-FdAs

It was a spray process.
I think the OP needs a dipping process.

Not sure if water + paint is sticky enough for the case. Or if it won't peel off afterwards.
