First off, base coat, you know the drill. I frankenpolished the orangey base by mixing orange, yellow, brown and dark red polish, and applied it so that it looks like exposed film – well, sort of, anyway.
Then I painted the ‘frame’ borders using a striper and black acrylic paint. Google images ’35mm film’ for reference. You can totally use a nail polish striper, but acrylic is just easier to deal with.
Then I painted white stripes in the middle of the black lines on the sides, and divided them into sprocket
holes. 35mm has 8 for each frame, but you can do it randomly, no need to be a nazi about it.
Then paint the rest of the fucking owl. JK.
Then I diluted black acrylic paint with water and spread it around the edges of the ‘frames’. Watercolour paints would work even better for this, but I didn’t have any. Then clean up and put some top coat on, and it’s ready for the projector.
And there you go. Film on your digits.
