personalizing lighters
    #2779578 - 06/09/04 11:54 PM (12 years, 5 months ago)

i remember a recent thread where someone made their own lighters, and i would like to make my own...in light of that:

how is it done?  my friend measures the lighters than prints out copies and decupages them on...

however, the decupage is a poor way to mask on the image.  it leaves lines giving in a shiny woody finish i dont agree with. 

if anyone has any suggestions please let me know how to master the "do" of personalizing lighters!

thanks all
peace

maybe you should do a search in the marketplace forum because a long time ago there was a guy who customized lighters for people on the shroomery and for himself ofcoarse :cool:

Carving really can create original designs and stuff, but i'm always paranoid I'm going to burst the lighter in my hands.

No, I don't see any reason it would cause a spark so there would be no flame.. but the plastic shrapnel sounds painful.

Clear packing tape & double-stick tape works well. Print or Cut an image out & make it the size of the lighter by wrapping it around & cutting off excess. I currently have lighters with the following pictures: a Ginger candy wrapper, a Green Tea bag, a campfire.. and one I made a paint pen drool all over & then blew real hard on the wet paint getting a crazy design. clear packing tape around the outside & it's don
