  • Phone case painting is an inexpensive and fun way to decorate your smartphone. It is much cheaper than buying a ready-made phone case.
  • The process of painting is fun and creative! You are making a completely new unique accessory with your own hands.
  • The acrylic and oil base of Artistro markers is permanent, so the drawing will remain bright and fresh forever! (If necessary, the drawing can be sealed with varnish so that it will be protected from any damage like that from pocket friction.)
  • It is not necessary to buy a lot of art supplies (like different types of paints, brushes, fixers, or paint remover) — one set of markers is enough to complete any picture.
  • If you are tired of your current drawing, you can easily replace it by purchasing another blank phone case and making a new piece of art.
