Here’s how I brightened up my Diana Mini for summer. What’s more summery than sunflowers?
I went to my local craft store and bought tiny paint brushes and enamel paint in white, yellow, green and brown. Personally I think enamel paint is the best for painting onto plastic as it produces bright colours and definitely won’t rub off. The little pots cost £2 but there was more than enough for my decoration.
I decided to just paint the bumpy surface around the middle of my Diana Mini. First I painted the background white which took a few coats so that all the bumps were covered with paint. Make sure the paint is completely dry before painting another layer or a different colour which can take a few hours. Then I painted the yellow petals of the sunflowers onto the white background.
For the centre of the sunflowers I painted brown oval shapes with short lines coming from them, they look sort of like fat spiders. Then I painted the stems and leaves with green and finally I painted yellow, white and green dots on the brown centres to depict the sunflower seeds.
Ta dah! My Diana Mini is now ready for summer. Get creative! I would love to see anyone else’s summer decorations, this can be done with any camera, and design and any colours! Happy summer everyone.
