How To Marblize Your Macbook!

How To Marblize Your Macbook!

My love for marble is endless so when I came across a marblize Macbook online, I was ridiculously excited to give it a go myself. I already owned marble contact from another project so it was just a matter of taking the time (10-15 minutes max.) to apply the contact. It can be a bit fiddly but luckily it’s pretty easy to manoeuvre and re-stick. Worst case, it’s not super expensive so you can play around a bit.

What you’ll need:

  • Marble contact – you can find it on ebay or at Bunnings Warehouse
  • Wooden or plastic ruler – found this to be best as it won’t cut into the contact & pushes out the airbubbles.
  • XACTO knife – from Officeworks
  • Scissor

tools

Preparation:

Make sure lid is clean. If it’s slightly damp that’s ok, as it will help to avoid air bubbles as you can move it around until it dries.

Step 1: Peel back the corner of the contact from the film and lay edge down on lid.

Step 2: Hold sheet in one hand and ruler in the other. Use the ruler to push the contact down onto the lid. The ruler guides the contact onto the lid and also smooths bubbles out.

Step 3: Use scissors to cut off extra contact as close to the edge as possible then use XACTO or Stanley knife to carefully remove any excess around the edge of the lid.

Step 4: Cut out Apple logo with the aforementioned knife.
