Use a matte finish sealer and you'll be okay. Are you trying to paint the keycaps? I have never seen that turn out well. I painted my Black Widow Ultimate with success and I can tell you about that.

well id been thinking about it last night and i think ill just try and paint around the keys like there slant not the top casue i really want to see the blue light pass through the keys still so it will be like a white keyboard and keys except the top those will still be black and ill take the blue color i find and do a circuit board design then ill matte finish it like you said.

Id love to hear about your keyboard paint project.

If any one has anything else to add/ offer let me know plz
