Console painting tips? also check out my work.

Postby TheTechDoc » Thu Sep 14, 2017 1:44 am

Hey guys and gals, so I am modding a 360 jasper to sell, if you have seen me on instagram under thetechdoc_mods, youll know Im a moderate fan of making custom cases, but one thing ive never really done (at least not for sale) is a hand painted design, well out of nowhere I had an idea on what to add to an xbox Im currently modding (rgh, preloaded games,leds etc) and it ended up being a joker themed xbox of sorts (pictures below) its still not done fully though im not sure what else it needs so suggestions would be nice, though im not crazy about the red on the power button, might either re do it or add something to it ? I dunno

but my problem is, the hand paint I used is...well, lets just say dime store crap, and as such it scratches off very easily, stupid move I know but I am way to broke to buy good stuff at the moment, so my question is, what can I do to make it a bit more scratch proof? I know I can clear coat the whole xbox but from my experience it just makes the console sticky if not done perfectly in one coat and tbh I dont want to risk ruining the console as is the best hand painted thing ive done on a console :lol:

so any ideas on some kind of coating I can add to make it scratch proof to a degree? I thought clear nail polish to paint over the hand paint but again, dont want to rush and ruin it,

any help is appreciated,

Cheers guys!

two options as follows:
1, HVLP powder coating (auto sprayer and workspace) though that would be quite expensive.
2, the more realistic option would be primer/undercoat and a top coat, normal auto-body aerosol paint.
^^ as for applying it, you know what the deal is there.
nothing is scratch proof, you can get very close though.
tube searches will help on both painting styles.
have fun, good luck. :mrgreen:

Sand it all down, final sand with a really fine wet & dry paper then appropriate light ot coloured primer followed by two coats of gloss paint and/or you artwork and finally two coats of clear coat. All coats should be applied evenly and sparingly (car spray cans are usually fine). If using decals use waterlside decal paper to print your designs then clear coat them before applying then clear coating again.

Sometimes you'll make mistakes but just clean them up/cover them as best you can :lol:
