Painting Computer Mods

There are two components to game play and computer use: software and hardware. For gamers, computer modding is often a term used for a very popular complicated coding process that modifies a game to create a different style of game play. Computer mods also often refers to the process of turning a tired looking hardware component into a work of art when you paint computers with a special paint intended for plastic or vinyl.

Computer mods use something that already exists and adds your own flare of style. Gamers and software modders know the term to mean changing the code to change the game play, but while you're modifying the code, why not first give your old computer or console a new look with special paint for computers! Personalize and change the look of your computer or gaming console to reflect your personality, your gaming character preferences, or merely to look good with your décor.

Maybe you're tired of looking at the same old case day after day that looks like every other case sold. Maybe you want to personalize it to reflect your favorite game or character in a game. Maybe you like the retro feel and want to revamp an old computer or gaming system, or recreate your own retro look with a new computer build. Painting your computer or console is an easy way to tranform your PC into something new that you will enjoy looking at with the satisfaction of knowing you created the new look.

When you paint computers, you don't want to use just any can of paint unless you don't mind watching it peel right off almost immediately upon application or yellowing, melting, and cracking over time. It requires a special paint that is designed to last and stick to the plastic and metals that make up computer and gaming console cases. Vinyl Dye is the only online seller of the kind of paint that is made to stick to leather, vinyl and plastic. Create simple designs to complex images using the multiple array of colours available for computer mods.

Select the colors that fit your style and desired effects. One satisfied customer's computer mod was successfully transformed into a retro look of a Commodore 64 or Amiga A1200 using several layers of white vinyl dye spray paint. The end result looks as if it came fresh from the factory with a skin meant for this model. The paint covers so well that you can go from black to white or cover a rich red to white without notice of the previous colour.

Prepare for painting by taking apart only the pieces that will be painted and finding a spot to spray with cardboard or wood underneath. You will definitely want to paint the case, but to do the job well, you will also want to disassemble some of the inside parts to change the colour of the inside plastic parts cases to match the new colour of the outside without damaging the delicate electronics.
