    I think acrylic would work though. The spine is plastic and therefore easier to spray paint and make it look good!

    as long as it's some kind of acrylic paint, it should work fine.
    otherwise, have a backup case.

    I dont think it would work - obviously it wouldnt paint well on the silicon-ish material the bottom layer is made of, and if you paint on the acrylic spine it will probably chip when you bend the spine to put it on. but if not, then you could easily paint the spine. just sand it down a bit (so its easier for the paint to stay) and use some auto paint or something similar (NOT house paint! seriously it would look like crap and probably wouldnt stick well)

    I recently bought a black Rebel Touch, and decided it needed some extra color. So, I took the hard plastic "ribs" off of the back and took out some spray paint. I spray painted it gold for my school colors and it turned out extremely nice!

    I highly recommend customizing it like this! Sorry, I don't have a digital camera so I can't send pics, but you can trust me it looks great.
