Press the Sugru firmly onto the camera ensuring a good bond. Don't worry about the finish yet.

Step 3

Sugru moulded onto camera with fingers

Hold your camera and press your grip firmly into the Sugru. You might want to gently release your grip and reapply your grip.

Step 4

Smoothed over Sugru pad

Gently rub the surface to get a good smooth finish.

Step 5

For the next part of your grip, once again press the Sugru firmly onto the camera.

Sometimes using a bit of soapy water can help to get a better finish. Use the inside of your little finger to get it really smooth.

Repeat the previous steps. In addition to this you can also add a custom grip to the bottom of your camera for when taking portrait photographs. Leave the Sugru to set for 12-24 hours.
