Yes, this is the way to go. It removes the sanding and painting dust and it evaporates before you paint the next coat.

Can you get an air brush cheap? Would make your painting projects a lot cleaner and easier.

Look around for a starter kit with a single action air brush and a few cans of air for it. :)

She's coming along das.dude! Can i add some input? To prevent acrylic from cracking, place a piece of sacrificial wood underneath when cutting/drilling. Have you ever gave any thought to dipping the chasis parts inplace of brushing them? You would have to disassemble the case frame though if going with multi colours, but you would'nt have the brush strokes to deal with after ;) For masking tape, you need to try and find the green stuff

Keep it up bro! :pimp:
i wish i could disassemble it, but i cant afford a rivet gun at the moment. that was my first choice. plus i am using very little paint. all the white work done has consumed less than 80ml paint till now XD. this white color isnt good. its kinda slowly turning a bit reddish afterthe paint is left on and dried. maybe i will add a tiiiiny bit of blue again XD


i have another big work in the talks. hopefully it will come through.

oh and i solved the brush strokes problem. used a brush with finer and softer bristles. plus diluted the paint a bit more.



mixed in some blue and tried i on the plastic bits of the front bezel.

also put in the acrylic insert in the front of the bezel.. the plastic there was too thick, about 5mm, making it impossible to fit switches( the original idea) but now this acrylic looks so pretty i might do some kinky lighting shit with it. like scuff it up, paint a little inverted picture thing. something to symbolize the build with.



these are the blues.

i may apply the blue directly as it is(right) without diluting with the white.

maybe a little white... like the one on the left

Turpentine might strip a little of the paint - isn't that stuff a paint remover?

diluter yes, but it cant take off paint once completely dry. since i dont let the layers cure completely the turpentine sorta helps with making a surface for the new paint to bond to. eliminating the need to sand everywhere.

What sorcery is this?:eek:
