Personalize Your Konstruktor With a Shabby-Chic Look

When I got my Konstruktor I thought for a moment, "should I put it together right now or make a completely new design?" So what did I do? Of course, I completely redesigned it! I picked a beautiful color for my new design in the craft store.

Aside from your Konstruktor Kit, you will need:

  • color of your choice
  • brush
  • sandpaper

First, I painted all the components of the Konstruktor with a brush in thin layers.

After everything is dry, I went over some edges and the Lomography lettering with a piece of sandpaper, so that the black of the case shows. After that, I still used the supplied white leather for the front and back.

Then, I assembled everything together and finished my Shabby Chic Konstruktor. See how beautiful she is!

So, do not be afraid to reinvent the camera and to make a new design! I had a lot of fun and I’m very happy with my result. I used a shoe lace for a simple strap, which is enough for me because the Konstruktor is lightweight.
