My thrilling day job is as an inventory manager and paint mixer for an auto body shop. As such I mix and create a lot of interesting colors for everything from compact Toyota's to Ferrari's custom painted with matte finishes. I had this idea pop into my head not to long ago while mixing up some bright yellow paint. Has anyone ever painted their controller with automotive paint? It seems like it could work, and give a cool looking element to a mostly mundane object.
Now before people jump in and say solvent paint isn't safe, I agree. My shop is 100% water based paint, so there isn't any risk there at least that I know of. The only risk I can foresee is failure, but it's a Mixtrack (Not even pro) so the loss won't be too bad if I ruin it. I am looking to see if anyone had any similar ideas/projects and how the turned out. Also, what kind of steps did you take?
