4. Not sure, stencil would work if you find one you like. Not sure what you mean by that since you crossed out the first part of that.
Quick question though, what case are you painting?
Thanks for the quick reply. +Repped.
I am planning on painting my QuickFire TK's casing. Yes, I know it is already black. But hear me out.
I want to spray it one layer black first to cover up all the branding, even though they're quite subtle already. These are the CM Storm logo on the top next to the Lock LED indicators, and at the rear. I figured one even coat would cover them up.
Then, (here's where my boring "mod" idea gets revealed. No place like here though, so) I want to do a subtle, almost exact same colour of the CM Storm logo, but only as an Evangelion's "Nerv" logo, much like the cap I purchased from Geek_Feng. Hence why I'm wondering how I would stencil. I'm guessing... print out and cut out with my graphic designer skill with a scalpel knife, and tape it down and masking tape off as far as I can on the case?
What adverse effects might I face if I were not to sand it at all before applying spray/base? Again, treat me as a spraying n00b as the last time I sprayed something it required no finesse whatsoever.
EDIT: I'm in the UK, when hunting down bits and bobs for such a job. I'm thinking where I could get a giant cardboard box to use as a spray booth, lol.Edited by neo0031 - 10/13/13 at 1:23pm
