We started with an old video cassette recorder some people call them VCRs.

  • We sanded the whole thing down and sprayed it with white rust oleum gloss.

  • We let it sit in the sun for 2 hours

  • We taped it diagonally to get the red triangle and then sprayed red

  • Next we cut out all the stickers using a Cameo 3 Vinyl Gloss paper

  • Then we stuck on the stickers

  • Easy.

We started with an old type writer.

  • We sanded the whole thing down and taped the parts that still looked ok like the keys

  • sprayed it with white rust oleum gloss.

  • We let it sit in the sun for 2 hours

  • We removed the tape

  • Next we cut out all the stickers using a Cameo 3 Vinyl Gloss paper

  • Then we stuck on the stickers

  • for a final touch we printed out a google drive log in page


Iā€™m hoping to do more of these. Like a cassette Walkman that is done in the style of spottily. A mores code machine done with Twitter branding. Let me know if you have any ideas.

20 20 hind sight we would not have sprayed the front with undercoat first. It made the front a little to textured.
