Now I have finished the orange striae on all of my stripes, even the ugly green stripes are now done. Once this step was complete, I pull off all of the blue tape for the stripes. I let the wall dry overnight before re-taping for the thinner stripes.
Now you see the smaller stripes taped out. There are 32 of them, but who’s counting.
A change has been made. The center of the stripe will now be a deeper gold and two 1/8" burnt orange stripes will run down each side. Here is a detail look of my taping. I used many, many rolls of tape. So many rolls, I thought I would never finish. When it was taped like this, I then did the gold layer. Once dry, I had to re-tape again… over the gold and pull off the white tape to add the burnt orange. Now if the multiple steps of taping were not enough to drive me insane, I had the added dilemma of the tape now peeling off the wall as fast as I could tape it. To do the burnt orange stripes I could only tape ahead 3-4 stripes at a time. This whole process ate up two days and a lot of my patience.
I took breaks and played with my iPhone. I learned how to take pictures with the phone and how to send them in text messages. I was nervous using my phone because my new case that I ordered had yet to arrive, so it was "naked" and susceptible to my grimy paint fingers.
When I first wrote about my new iPhone, one of the comments I received told me about a great online site to order a case, so I went to the Incipio website and placed my order. Btw, if you become a fan of Incipeo on Facebook before you place an order, you will receive a code number for a 15% discount.
This case is perfect for me. It’s two parts, a silicone cover (the purple) and a clear, hard plastic that fits over the back and 4 corners (like a bumper). Now it is very easy to clean and I am much less anxious about dropping it. Thanks Tatjana!
