Welcome to the Painters Club of OCN. This will be a place you can ask any and all questions about painting Computer cases and components.



Reasons for this club.
This is a place members are welcome to ask questions about any computer related painting they may have. This covers everything from Cases, speaker boxes, even a custom desk. There are many types of paints, bonding agents, additives, and epoxy's now days. I feel we can lead them into the right direction to achieve the right quality, finish, and effect they are looking for.

Rules to join.
I ask that you have some kind of experience painting. I prefer in a professional painting environment, whether it be automotive, or industrial. I also ask that you show something you have painted, it can be sent to me by PM or email. This is to verify only, I will not judge skills or anything like that. as a painter I know we all have our own area of expertise. I will accept members who use rattle cans as I have seen some nice paint jobs in the mod sections that look like they have been done with HVLP. Members with wood painting skills are welcome as well. I am trying to get a broad rage of painters to be able to cover anything we can run into.

Since I haven't seen anybody else respond yet, I figured I'd throw in my two bits.

I think it's a good idea, but likely a slow starter here. Most will either send out the painting to be done professionally, or will do it themselves with rattle cans. I would personally love to do painting professionally, but I don't have the space or equipment for that. I do have a friend who does, and I may drag my current build out to his shop and borrow his equipment for it.

As far as rattle cans, that's pretty well covered here and on the net. I don't consider myself to be a pro painter, and I certainly don't know everything. I'm proficient with the rattle cans, and pretty decent with an airbrush. I've done a small amount of work with HVLP on aircraft. I know how to get good results. I also tend to spend too much time cruising the forums and giving assistance in other areas. It's tempting to add myself in here as well, but just don't have the time.

I'm not convinced we need a special club/section just for this. Would be happy to be proven wrong.

Perfect time for this thread to come up! Where are all the guides for painting case fans? Could of swore I saw a bunch around a year ago on OCN. Can't find them now.

Edit: haha, there's a sticky on fan painting right here in case mods section doh.gif. That's one, more is always nice.

well the biggest thing about painting is the prep work. if you do not have a good start than the finish will not be as good. i see alot of them where they pull a fan or shroud of and just prime and paint, or just paint. while some of them look decent, the paint will not hold its shine, and sometimes will chip/ crack/ or flake off. i need to write a few guides. one for plastics and one for metal, then maybe one for stuff that will flex or bend. i will start on it soon.

I need a way to get these rubber pieces on these Cougar fans white, obviously the paint flaked right off rolleyes.gif. All 7 of my other Cougars are cleaned and taped up ready to go, guess I'll paint them tomorrow.

Have you tried plasti-dipping them and then sticking them on with some rubber cement?

An epoxy or oil based paint should work decent for you. it will be better than most poly based paints.
