    I'd like to paint my smart cover with some color and/or some graphics but i have no idea what colour i could use to do that, i was thinking about glueing a fabric on it but i'm not sure it'll stay.
    Any ideas?

    I took a shoe shine kit to my black leather case. Shines it up a bit and kind of gives a little bit of an antiqued look..to me it emphasizes the fact that it is real leather.

    I thought about taking some stuff to it that we used in the (black boot) Army to give a fake spit shine to boots, but I like the case as it is now.

    i like the smart cover. I think all the other covers are ugly when the iPad is inside. But i don't think i can do the same as clyde2801 with the neoprene cover.

    thanks for that, some useful info in there, although they want to color their surfsuits so they have the problem that the neoprene will be streched and the color will peel off, i don't have that problem on the smartcover, so i'll just try with normal fabric color.
    Thanks
