This is another thing that I have done a long time ago, but now I’ve decided to release it as a HowTo. I had an old keyboard lying around and I was thinking how it would be to have one black keyboard (even though it’s quite easy to just go and buy one.) I didn’t take pictures of all of the segments, but I’ll try to explain them:
Material and Equipment:
- Frost Spray (The color you want)
This is the keyboard:
The first step is to get rid of all the keys. Set them aside or if you’d like to paint the keys too then go ahead and leave them in, it’s your keyboard anyway! But I’ll describe the way I did.
First, take off all the keys. I advise using pliers because keys don’t come out so easily. But be careful to not damage the keys.
Here are some pictures of it:
What you could do is leave your keys in a bowl with water and detergent and it will clean them a bit.
After taking all the keys off, it’s time to choose what you want to paint and what you don’t.
You can simply use tape to cover what you don’t want painted.
Now it’s time to rock!!!
Tape your keyboard with paper in areas you don’t want paint and go ahead and start painting! You should spray with a distance of about 15 cm and fast, don’t leave the spray on the same point for too long. The first coat probably won’t cover all of the keyboard, so you should wait about 15 minutes and then spray it with another coat. Keep going it until it’s fully covered.
Some pictures of the process:
Now you should wait 24 hours until it is fully dry.
Now it’s time to put the keys back. One piece advice, before you start this project, you should take a picture of your keyboard so you know where to put the keys again.
And then it’s ready.
Hope you liked this HowTo.
