    These are not the droids were looking for...Move along

    Just thought id post my work in progress...
    Printed and cut out. Water based decal paper.
    The laminating spray is next I think :-)

    You need to laminate the ink on the paper before you put it in water.

    Hope you like...oh yea Red led installed on front :-)





    The base I will have for it (soon) is a white with blue led glow...

    Let us know if you have any ideas on this ?

    Thx
    Tank

    Hi,

    I got the special paper from Crafty Computer Papers And Fabrics For Inkjet And Laser Printers
    Its water based white paper, like the tattoo paper you can get.
    Theres some helpful videos on their site...
    You need to spray lacker over your print.

    Then cut it out and simply leave it in water for a minute.
    Then slide it onto your Wii...and position properly getting any air bubbles out.

    I sprayed lacker over the areas when it had dried.

    I got the Wii template for the console shape on www.decalgirl.com
    Simply loaded this into photoshop and imported my own graphics, resized to suit.

    Tip for newbies using lacker: i.e. ME......... Spray on to surface face down. I held the wii upright and ended up with some drip lacker markings :-( Hard to see 2 feet away but on close inspection you can see drip markings.
