    "LavaBerry" Case

    "My greatest accomplishments are almost always accidents". - me 10/2/2007

    I had a clear plastic case for my BB8830, but didn't like it, so I painted it red, and then put a clear coat on it to protect it.

    My wife pointed out that the red was very obnoxious and loud, so I sanded it down lightly and painted it black. When I went back to collect the case after giving it time to dry, the black paint had "cracked" and receded in some areas. It occured to me that it looked a lot like lava flowing from cracks in rock. I put a few more clear coats on it, and changed the wallpaper.

    I can't even begin to explain how to reproduce this effect (refer to the leading statement in the post).

    If only I could remember how many layers of paint, clear coat, etc. I put on the case, and in what order!
