Taking a break from cars for a few paint jobs we ready to have some fun painting some PS4 Controllers, one with a Fortnite (video game) theme, and another with inspired by Rick and Morty. Here are the two videos:
To prepare these controllers for paint, it needs to be cleaned and primed following the correct plastic procedure. Here is a video that looks a preparing plastics in more depth.
Plastic Cleaner – Used to remove residue left from plastic manufacturing. This helps plastic primer adhere properly to create a long-lasting paint job.
Adhesion Promoter / Plastic Primer – Coating used to prime plastic, this allows other paint products to stick to the plastic. If not used, the paint will usually flake off the plastic.
Price: $11.36Was: $12.11
Silver Metallic Paint – If you are going to be doing candy effects, a high/coarse metallic paint such as this will create a good base.
1 Part Clear (Aerosol) – This product is used in a variety of ways in the videos above. It is used as a protective coating over waterslide transfer paper in order to place your decals on an object. It is also used as a barrier coat to protect waterborne paint. You could use this product as your final clearcoat, however, you will not get the same level of gloss and durability.
Waterslide Transfer Paper – Using an inkjet printer, your designs can be printed on this paper and placed on an object, in the case of this project, our PS4 controller.
2 Part Clear (Aerosol) – If you want the ultimate shine to finish off any paint job, a 2 Part clear coat such as this is ideal. You need to press the button on the bottom prior to using for activation, the can will have a shelf life of only a few days once activated.
