Doing this post sloppy from my phone, hope the pics are in order...if not meh. Anywho if I did it right this first one is the initial drawing on the case.

First cut, used a cutting wheel for the rainbow, a diamond tip bit for the butterflies/man...was my first time using the diamond bit and I surprised myself that I didn't butcher the case.

If ya can't tell its going to be a guy blowing his brains out..except instead of brains its a rainbow with butterflies. Going to start lighting it up soon....but suggestions on ways to go with the lighting would be appreciated. Also I have one more case lying around ....give me suggestions!

Thanks fer checking it out.

What works really well to get it really close is a set of files. There are an array of sizes and shapes of files that will help get in all the nooks and crannies. Once you get everything filed up, then take some higher grit sand paper and smooth it out and make the edges a little rounded.

As far as the lighting, you will need something to isolate the light in each section. This can be a little bit of a challenge, but if you can find a good way to do it then it would definitely add an entirely new level to the case look.

Keep posting up pics. We love to see them!
