I know, I know I am late to both the galaxy and pop socket bandwagons. I finally bought myself a pop socket online, and I love it. It was just a bit too basic for my style, so I busted out a few trusty craft supplies to give a new look. Learn how to make your own galaxy pop socket with Mod Podge and Dimensional Magic.
Before I get started, I need to tell you NOT to do what I did. Don’t try to do this project while the pop socket is attached to your phone. It’s best to take it off of the case in case of messes. Don’t be like me.
I started with a pop socket that already had a galaxy-esque design printed on it. If your pop socket does not, you can achieve the same effect by painting the pop socket black and then splattering on some blue and purple craft paint. Let it dry completely before moving on to the next steps.
I added some major glitter effect with new Mega Glitter Mod Podge. Since I still wanted the blue and purple to show through, I only put a very small amount of the Mod Podge to the pop socket. If you want a totally glittery look, you could completely cover it with the glitter. Let the Mod Podge dry fully.
Make sure the pop socket is on a flat surface (again much easier if it’s not on your phone case). Then add Dimensional Magic to cover the top of the pop socket. Dimensional Magic has really strong surface tension, so it will level itself off to create a smooth shiny finish. Add small amounts at a time, so that it does not overflow off the top of the pop socket.
Next, use a pin to pop or remove any bubbles from the surface of the Dimensional Magic. If you don’t remove the bubbles now, they will harden in place permanently.
Let the Dimensional Magic dry completely. Then enjoy your sparkly and shiny galaxy pop socket!
