Clean job! How do you go about painting the computer case? What type of paint do you use?
I need to do some homework on painting electronic appliances. I just don't know where to start. Anyone has documentation, a website with details on how to paint different surfaces into difference types of finishes? I'd really like to know how to do a piano finish...
I just did a "good enough" paint job on my starving student. It was more a learning experience than anything else. The so called "epoxy enamel" paint is not as hard as epoxy resin, even though it's advertised as so. I used Krylon's, and it can be scratched with your nails. The Hammond enclosure is anodized aluminum, which is a porous surface. I thought the paint would stick well to it, but it does not. My glue gun dropped some hot glue on the paint while I was assembling the amplifier, and removing the glue took the pain off with it. It also took a dozen coats of white paint on the transformer to get a good even coat. Conclusion: it's the last time I paint without a primer coat first, and a clear coat last.
That computer was piano bronze at last. But it is very hard to do unfortunately.
Wet sanding with 2000 grid sandpaper in every way (like x and + ways) and a few coats and patience. At last clear varnish and after a month wax polish. Thats how you get piano look.
I used Duplicolor spray paint. Always warmed up the spray can and shaked a few minutes. Also you have to paint in a room without dust.
But about notebook painting, I dont recommend that. Notebook gets hotter than before after painting.
Yours is also nice I think.
