Texas Keyboard

Well, my brother in law asked, and I did my best. It came out pretty good. I did learn some important lessons with this, which was what I was hoping to do.

Let me know what you think

Have you used that paint on other plastic items prior to this project? I have yet to find a medium that sticks to things like phones and keyboards that does not come off over time. Greasy, human fingers are the nemesis of paintjobs on plastic. I'd be very interested to know how that paint holds up. I've got a keyboard that needs decorating...

Clavus, you hit the nail square on the head. The paints can be a pain in the butt to adhere to plastics, or metals for that matter. I painted a keyboard a very deep metalic blue, it was beautiful, until i picked it up. It was like a lotto scratch card. It broke my heart.

Theres a couple of things I have figured out to get around this.

1. Base coat with a rattle can Kreon, or other purpose made primer.
2. Sand down, just to add a slight rough surface to let the paint adhere too
3. Paint in fine, multiple layers. This is a really hard step, because you just have to be patient.

I also use a plastic primer for stuff like that. Some of the stuff says it is flexible to keep better adhesion.

What about those new fusion paints? Anyone had any luck with those?

Edit: How rude of me. Awesome job on the keyboard.

How much does an airspray setup to do that kind of work cost? I was thinking about learning the art.
