Post pictures of your DIY painted w/e's!

 

Painting my HD-25's was a PITA, and took forever, but you learn something everyday.

Love the attention to detail on this paint job! Very nice!

I especially like the re-cable.

Amazing!

 

What type of paint did you use?

Pft. Attention to detail....

 

If you saw them in person, you'd see that I suck at painting. Where are you beautiful T50rp's!

 

I used Duplicolor self etching primer, then rustoleum lacquer, then duplicolor acrylic clear enamel. Apparently the clear enamel takes 7 days to fully dry, but I could never wait that long. :P

Is the red on the cups glossy?

They look very nice. Good job.

Yes the cups are glossy, took a few coats of clear enamel to get that look.

 

Really? No one else has DIY paint jobs?

I did it by hand with an acrylic paint. A terrible choice in retrospect, but a few coats plus a varnish on top and it wasn't half bad.

What's a w/e?

 

Is this thread limited to headphones, or are sources and amplifiers welcome?

 

I'm currently painting my starving student in glossy black and white. I'll post pictures of the paint job if it's allowed.

W/e = What ever. So yup you can post anything. W/e!

Great!

 

By brain had the weird reflex of changing w/e with week end. Kinda made me wonder what a DIY painted week end looks like...

 

Oh and by the way, that black and red HD25 is fabulous! It makes for an eye catching avatar, if nothing else. beerchug.gif

Holy crap. Just took a look at your Starving student pics and WOW! I will need to build a P2P starving student one of these days. Can't wait to see it painted!
