    If you're here reading this, it's because the title of the thread appeals you. How I ruined my...
    I will first explain why I intentionally ruin the box of my OP8pro.

    • Why I ruined it:

    Tomorrow OnePlus will start marketing its famous Andre's box. I must say that I appreciate his Street Art concept. It's to tell you my frustration that it will not be available for the OP8pro model.
    So I went to buy some paint fat the shop, got some pictures of the artist and his work and made my way.

    • How I ruined it:

    I went home, I thought about what would be the best way to ruin the box I received at the Pop-up event. I chose one, the ugliest one according to my liking (green) and started to trash the case.

    I coated it with paint using a kitchen sponge. Then I put it in the oven to dry it. Given my frustration, I didn't want to wait until tomorrow to continue the ransacking of this case. After about fifteen minutes, the paint dried in the oven and I was able to start drawing by hand on this case.


    I patiently drew, I'm not very good at it, the reproduction of one of these drawings (the one I prefer, I pasted it as an avatar) From the satisfying result, I took out the paint cans I bought this afternoon from the modeler! And I kept on messing up this case with even more paint, a little brushstroke here, a little brushstroke there... After a good moment of a little brushstroke, this hull was unrecognizable... Revenge!!!!


    Why OnePlus decided not to offer an A-sign case for the OP8pro model? There are marketing choices that only marketers can explain!


    Was it worth ruining this case? Tell me!

    [e]1f601[/e] as this is for personal use, I doubt he'll sue anyone.
    Copyright begins when you do commercial purpose!
    I don't, it is just to fulfill a something forgotten by OnePlus.

    The result is great, it only remains to be seen the resistance of the paint to wear and tear, perhaps it would be convenient to add a varnish

    hi @mojoyoyo77 indeed, I had to set a nail coating because the touchy feeling wasn't nice and the paint on a long time would be damage. Now the coating is applied I can say it is a soft plastic touchy feeling.
