Those are pretty cool. Remember the LED's themselves are usually colored on backlit keyboards, so you'll have a blue LED shining though them.

If you find a way to color the rest of the key, and leave a little bit unpainted for the lettering- it would turn out even better.

thats what im trying to do. Either with some kind of glue(i cant find the right one) or with a laser engraver, I could outline the letters or mark them. I need more tech on those haha.
I just saw a pic of these keycaps on blackwidow, since those are the same as cherry keycaps, its lower than the BW keycaps, which made it bad to fit with BW.
