More good stuff. I'm not sure what controller this is - is it some kind of Genesis replica? Either way, it looks very polished and professional.

How did you do the N64 job?
Course clear! You got a card.

The Genesis controller is actually a 3rd part replica. I got the effect by creating a gradient of solid sky blue, and blue candy, then spraying it with water. Then carefully spraying one side of the water droplets with one color, and the other side with a brighter color. the black light effect wasn't intentional, but was spotted when I realized that the bright color was actually florescent yellow.

That N64 controller was tricky.
You would not believe how many tiny parts you find in these things.
That aside, I got the effect by coating with Solid green, then wrapping in an old onion sack. Then coating random parts with Green candy, and blue candy, then applying gold candy after removing the netting.


This is one I did today. It was supposed to be a black light effect, but I used too much electric blue, and it got absorbed by the clear coat... WHOOPS!

Whoa these are really cool!

I don't know what the "painted controller" market is like but if there is one, these could be sellable.

Just had to google that one. Seems to be mostly tutorials on doing it rather than services being available...

It's strange, I had no idea there were so many of these tutorials out there.

I will post another pic of this when I figure out how to capture the glow in the dark effects on it.

I wouldn't normally do an entire game console, but the original owner absolutely mauled this thing.
At least now it looks nice. Shame the same cannot be said for my game room.

At first I saw the bag of temporary tattoos in the background and thought that the EverDrive had decided to get tattooed!
