    Project - CLOWNED!!

    Alright, let's start over. This is Project - Clowned. This will be for my Mom. The specs are unknown. I have parts, but may change them all, I just don't know yet. I want to do a Clown Theme case, since my Mom collects them. I don't want an evil clown like from 'IT'. I'm still a bit unsure on the total color pattern or what the window will look like, but I have started anyway. I'm using this OLD Hewlett Packard that was once equipped with 32MB of SDO RAM! Here's the before pics.







    I thought the case would look good with white, red and yellow. There may be some blue added later.











    Here's the front panel.



    I sanded off the writing.



    I painted with a clean plastic primer to start.



    Here's the two panels before. The one that will have a window will have to wait until I decide what I'm cutting and have done the work.



    Here's the paint I'm using. Has anyone tried using this laytex H2O spray paint?





    Here's the first primer coat of white. I'll be doing two coats of primer.



    I painted the drive plate too, although I think I may not be needing it.

    I was thinking of a blow hole that's a clowns open mouth. That may happen. I also want the window shaped like something that has to do with clowns. Maybe a balloon dog

    i wouldnt mix enamel primer and water based acrylic paint, youre gonna possibly end up with bubbles or peeling, for the plastic bezel i would recomend Krylon fusion or vinyl dye. just my .02. Its looking quite good!

    Who said I was using water based paint? I've painted many cases, I know what I'm doing.

    I painted the front with that laytex paint. This stuff is awesome. It comes out at about double the pressure as normal spray paint, but doesn't bubble up.



    Then the right panel.



    Then I let them dry.



    And here's the front after two coats.



    I flipped over the case and touched up the red.



    Here's the floppy drive I'm using.



    And here's the slot loading CD player with a coat of white primer. I'm ordering a new DVD player too. They'll both be painted red.



    I added the project name to the case too.

    I have no plans for the other one, but you never know with me.

    This morning I set the slot loading drive into place.



    Then I painted the top and side edges of the front red.





    I put on my last coat of clear on the panel...



    And on top.
