Cast idea

I fractured my growth plate in my ankle so playing sofyball so I have a cast. I asked the doctor for white but they only had glow in the dark so i just got glow in the dark. anyways, i went to the store and got all the basic sharpie colors in the rainbow such as red,orange,yellow, etc. i then asked my friend who can draw tiedye pattern so she drew tiedye pattern on my cast and it glows in the dark! the only thing bad about having the tiedye drawing on my cast would have to be that my friends and family couldnt sign it. But, hey, i have an AWESOME design!

liquid chalk ;)

i broke both my arms:( and i got white casts cause the doctor said the hospital couldn't afford colors! so i got lots of colored liquid chalk from smigggle and its like paint but it drys quickly and it slowly fades it takes a week to disapear completely so you just draw another design

Cast decoration

You can get a long sock with patterns on it and cut wholes for your fingers then slip the sock over your cast. That makes your cast look like its patterned. You can also get some patterned wooly fabric and make a little tube to put over it.

Vines & nail polish

Yes nail polish sounds weird but it actually stays on and it look really pretty. Also my mom drew vines with flowers along my arm and its really pretty too.

I drew a mustache on the side of my arm cast and put it up to my nose so it looks like I have a mustache! :)

the silver sharpie

I had a blue cast and got a silver sharpie for my friends to sign with. I thought it would look cute but the silver rubbed off and looked gross :( . I would not recomend using a silver sharpie on your cast.
