What materials would you recommend for customizing a white macbook?

I've been living with a stock macbook design, i.e. none, and I want to shake things up with some illustration or design on the white case top. What materials (inks, paints, ???) has anyone had success with applying to the case?

If you can get your hands on vinyl stickers/ a vinyl cutter ala Notcot, the possibilities seem sensational.

Here is a How to Video on spray painting a laptop case. It has a ton of prep that you may or may not need, but is really informative.

If perhaps you don't want to apply paint or ink to your laptop:

MacStyles makes a variety of skins to customize your Macbook. Possibly get a default skin with no design, and paint that, so you are not directly painting on your case.

Skinizi has similar skins with more artistic designs.
