How to create textured/rough surfaceJuly 25, 2008 at 09:54 | Posted in How-to | 1 Comment

First, you apply plastic cement on the plastic surface, like so:
Before the cement dries, take a used toothbrush (make sure you don’t put it in your mouth later) and just ‘brush’ randomly on the plastic surface. Notice I’m using pliers to hold the piece coz I don’t want it to fly off when I brush vigorously.
Once you’re satisfied, let it dry and you’re done. Below is a comparison between the textured (left) and original piece (right).
There you have it. There are other methods to achieve the same effect using primer/surfacer, but I haven’t tried it myself, so I can’t comment.
