Want to make your Diana even more special than it already is? Give it a refeshing new look with a new skin.
This is what the Finished Product should look like:
First you will need the following items on this list:
*Some form of adhesive paper (Like label paper, sticker paper, or get a decal done at Kinkos)
*An X-acto Knife or similar cutting tool.
*Adobe Photoshop or a free alternative
Part I, Making the Skin:
Step 1:First save this template to a folder and open them in Photoshop. (This is for the front of your camera.)
Step 2: Once opened in Photoshop, import an image/pattern into the template. Be sure it’s between the layers named “Top” and “Bottom.” Next re-size the image to fit like the photo above. Note: You’ll be cutting out the green shapes in both templates, so arrange your images accordingly.
Step 3: Save your image as a .jpg file.
Step 4: Repeat the same process with this template. (For the 120 back) Note: The green shape is where the viewfinder should be.
Step 5: Print your image on the label paper, sticker paper, or whichever you choose. Make sure that the printer won’t re-size your image. Uncheck boxes like: “Scale to fit.”
Part II, Applying the Skin:
Step 1: Once you have your page printed, collect all of your tools and move on to the next step.
Step 2: Cut out the parts, carefully cut out the inner parts. Use the picture below was a guide.
Step 3: Once you’re done cutting the label, peel off the backing and apply it carefully to the 120 film back and the front of the camera. Note: you might have to clean it up and shave off the edges a bit with the X-acto knife.
That’s it! Now you have a new skin on your Diana! To remove, just peel it off and clean the adhesive with Goo Gone, or something similar.
