Painted my keyboard - trgc - 09-08-2016

Painted my keyboard today, turned out alright. The gloss black previously picked up fingerprints far too easily.

Have any of you done anything similar?

What exactly did you paint and how did you do it.
It would be interesting to know how you achieved it and with what type of paint too.

Original look:

Painted just the upper frame piece to reduce fingerprints.

Larger area in the top right looked strange empty so I slapped a sticker there.

Paints:

Sanded down with steel wool, painted with primer, painted over with matte finish.

I like the matte finish a lot, I am half tempted to try this.

Nice colors, especially like the sticker.

I have the same keyboard. The stupid glossy finish is bothering me basically since day one. When my Ergodox is here and assembled i'll give this a shot.
