New Look for your Holga!

Somehow I wanted to redesign another camera, after I had redesigned a few La Sardinas. I wanted to give another camera a new look. My choice fell on my Woca 120 GF, it's identical to the Holga 120 GFN.

You’ll need:

  • Paper with pattern or design of your choice
  • double-sided tape
  • scissors
  • transparent adhesive tape
  • black marker pen
  • pencil

I had for ages a nice paper from the craft store at home, with many white cats as a motive. The paper is about twice as thick as normal printer paper. Finally I had the idea to use this paper.

First I took off the back part of the Woca and stuck a piece of clear adhesive tape. With a black marker pen, I marked the boundary and the film window for a template. The adhesive film I took off again and stuck it on a paper. Using scissors, I cut out the template and put it on my design paper. With a pencil I outlined the template, and then cut out the back.

For the front, I have measured the size and cut out my paper and just rounded the corners on one side. I’ve stuck to the double sided tape and this on ​​the camera.

Finished:

Finally, I made ​​another PEARLGIRL shield for the back with a label printer. The edges of the paper I painted with the black marker, so that the edges are no longer noticeable.

Have fun with you new Holga!
Your Pearlgirl

    Do have problems with the paper peeling off? I tried the same label on my cam, but it dropped off after one try :(
