Learn how to Customize Headphones

Have a look at the pictures to learn step by step how Bobsmade customize

headphones. It takes around 6 hours.

 

Here is everything you will need:

 

  • Headphones (I use Philips Shp 1900 - 15€)  
  • Permanent paint (Molotow One for All - one color bottle costs 17€)
  • Permanent Marker (Posterman from 3€ , Faber Castell Multimark 1€)
  • An old clean cloth
  • Thinner  4€
  • Varnish (Prisma colour spray 6€)
  • Some tape 1€
So if you have to buy everything new, incl. 3 Molotow colors you have to spend around 80€ just for the materials. Maybe it's not bad to think about ordering     some from Bobsmade :)  
There you can also find more examples and a How to paint on Headphones video.
Good luck if you try it yourself, and show your work if you want, by sending me a picture at -> contact@bobsmade.com

    hey there!
    Well, I think I'm gonna try this out, but other then thinner and tape, I don't have any of the materials, so...
    Is there any other brand you think will work just ass well as molotow? I don't know if my parents are willing to spend a lot of money on this (you know, with the headphones, the paint, the spray, the marker, etc) and, where I'm from, it's usually more expensive. It's probably a one time thing, so I think it's not worth it for me...
    help?

    Beautiful! I wonder if the paint and artwork fade over time though? Although it seems like a simple enough process, I guess you could just re-do it.

    Would beats by dre headphones be good phones to customize. I think they are made from the same material.

    Edwin Yeung (Friday, 16 December 2011 01:17)

    Could you suggest a paint that would work just as well as molotow? Because where I, live, I cant get any at the art stores in the city, and I cant order anything online.

    Marco Sardinha (Wednesday, 21 September 2011 18:57)

    Hi, I've read the tut and found it to be quite enlightning. However I still have a few questions!

    1) How many colors do you advise buying? (from the one4all range)
    2) Do the refills already come with the markers? (like the ones you used to paint the grey parts on the picture of the tutorial)
    3)Any other brands you advise buying?

    Thank you!

    P.S.: You're drawings are awesome, just thought you should know!

    That's awesome you've included a tutorial here; thanks! I started doing stuff like this before your website, but I was using all the wrong tools; they didn't look as nice as yours! Thanks for the tips, I'm more likely to order from you now!

    It's hard for me to find Mowlow paints at the store, and I'm not allowed to shop online yet. Are there any other brands that could replace Molotow that I could buy at a craftstore?

  • #72

    Jaopanda (Thursday, 19 May 2011 07:02)

    What qualifies a permanent paint to be permanent? What makes it different from other paints? I'm trying to find other permanent paint brands that I can buy at Micheals,Joann fabrics and so on.

    @Luka (Monday, 28 March 2011 21:57)

    okies then but do you think i will still be able to use the molotow though ??? and what shoe tut i can't find it :/

  • #68

    Luka (Sunday, 27 March 2011 20:16)

    @Fran
    I'm pretty sure they use acrylic paints on fabric, and probably no acetone, because its just used to remove the polish ^^ Maybe use the shoe tut?

  • #67

    fran (Sunday, 27 March 2011 16:16)

    does these materials work the same with the hats??? i need to know asap ! ;3

    ReaKid (Thursday, 10 March 2011 20:10)

    oh OK then, so this aceton or acetone (as i search search on google) is basically Polish Remover ?? and i know where to get the molotow and prisma is the cover for it ?

  • #63

    Muin (Friday, 04 March 2011 23:08)

    Well, i'm from Colombia and there's no way to get Molotow Permanent Paint here. Actually, any permanent paint at all.
    So i'm trying with Acrylics, because I really want to try, and i'll post the results here later, so you guys can use it as a reference.

    hab mal dringend ne frage ^^
    weisst du nochwas was man als glanzspray benutzen kann außer dieses prisma colour spray? vorzugsweise was was es im baumarkt/emmel gibt.

  • #61

    Bobsmade (Monday, 28 February 2011 12:25)

    @reakid you don't have to buy materials by these brands. Every other aceton and spray should work, too.

    @rahma just try it :) but permanent paint would be much better.

  • #60

    rahma (Monday, 28 February 2011 08:46)

    hai :D
    i have question .
    i wanna try it , but can i change permanent paint with acrylic paint ?
    and thanks before ^^

  • #59

    ReaKid (Friday, 25 February 2011 18:56)

    hey Bob xD I'd like to know where do you get the aceton tin and the Prisma colour spray because these are the only things I'm missing at the moment, to actually have a good at trying this out, which i really want to. please reply back A.S.A.P !!! :D
