[Official] Mechanical Keyboard Club - Because saving money is boring. - Page 1404

It looks good, I couldn't handle the raised text though, just a personal preference I suppose, I have a few keys already sanded, and have my first key drying right now, once its done, i'll wet sand and see how it feels.
( I typically wetsand after i'm satisfied with the coats, as It removes the high gloss, makes it look a bit more matt, and obviously smooths out the paint )

another mistake is people make painting they often sand with 100grit sandpaper, and I always wetsand with at minimium 2000 grit sandpaper.

And i'm hoping me doing several coats will help me not expose the corners while giving it its final sanding, I have no plans to clear coat as I would rather not have glossy keys.

If it goes well, I may just end up painting the rest of the keys, I'm only doing 4 keys right now ( E R V B )

I got light blue, which I think will look decent with my white blanks and my red esc and wasd ( though I have white WASD's as well )

Yours looks pretty good though, kinda sucks you have the heavy logo'ed version, but not a bad job. ( and honestly the pads are thick as crap so it would take tons of layers to build the paint up enough for it to be even.
though you could probably get away sanding the top of the key down till the text was exposed )

Hello I have an issue with my keyboard is not that big but it bothers me, well the thing is that like a month ago I spilled some milk on my keyboard. I clean it right away but obviously some milk went through the keys specially "L, Comma, Dot, and 9." I did submerge my entire keyboard in distilled water and press the switches to clean everything inside let it dry and everything you know the drill. The thing is that those keys doesn't sound as it used to be before, they don't make that "Click click click" anymore. I was thinking probably they need some lubrication? IDK if I'm right but that's why I am asking you guys, I hope I made myself clear enough

well, I kinda see why people don't recomending painting keyboard keycaps, after painting, sanding, painting, sanding, i'm not quite happy with the results. it didn't look bad, but just not up to my standards. but since full keycap sets only run about $40 I'll just order another set, and I can have 2 custom sets as well as another set for mods and such ( as I still want to make a few other custom keys )

He clearly meant "dye them", though I gotta admit I initially misread that as "die then". tongue.gif

Just making sure it wasn't a new mech keyboard trend where you press or pound the keys to test how solid the keys will stay until they break or something tongue.gif
Kinda like finding how many licks it takes to get to the center of a tootsie pop rolleyes.gif

- on another note, you don't like the color of the switches? sharpie might do, black kinda goes with everything lol, unless you have a white back plate then that might be to obvious.

I already have some white blanks, here is a picture of how they turned out, not the best, but passable. For $5, some free time, and the ugly stock caps, it will work for now.

Right now i'm currently in the process of creating a highly customized keyboard layout for Autocad, as I want to get another QFR to use at work.

You can see how its a bit different. for a one off key, it would work fine, but for a whole board I wouldn't recomend it.

im actually thinking on doing it to some keys when i get them. thinking a red and since the keys are gray that would make it a dark red but i don't want to screw any of them up so idk.
