Systm #43: Pimp Your Laptop with Paint, Lasers and Fur
A fabulous mink wrapped notebook? Automotive paints, laser etching and water bubble finishes? It's one of our odder episodes of Systm.
Bubble finish? You should see the texture David Randolph can deliver from a spray bottle of water and a heat gun!
Meanwhile, he's going more in depth on explaining how you get a VersaLaser (thanks to Universal Laser Systems for loaning us the machine!) to burn pretty pictures into your notebook... plus the uses of transfer paper to protect surfaces while you're laser etching.
Meanwhile, Patrick's going a different route with his notebook... something more... furry. Not in the animal costume sense (nothing wrong with that mind you) but, yes, he's covering his notebook in fabulously luxurious Mink. Faux mink, anyhow, thanks to the fur aisle at the local discount fabric shop, 3M Super 77 Spray Adhesive and a DIY vacuum bagging Systm.
OK... it's actually a SpaceBag, as seen on TV, but a pre-made vacuum bag is a lot easier than glueing together vinyl into an airtight container, adding a valve and -then- getting to vacuum tighten the fabric around your notebook while the glue sets!
