    Some minor updates on the keyboard. This has definitely got to be the most fragile and hardest thing to work with for this project. Not really done with them claws yet, just need them to harden first. Need to get another one up.

    Some 1/2 mold for the top of the keyboard

    I take a look into the small bucket next to it and... GOD.. THE KEYS!!! @_@ Basically gonna cover all the keys as I don't have to look at them eheheh. Estimate completion should be by next Friday plus the paintjob. Just an estimate if nothing came up that requires me to run around town.

    Finished layering the whole thing. 1 key is missing. The "\" key, gonna have to mod the sides of the keyboard by the looks of it. I've never used the Pause/Break key before so I'm gonna take that key.

    This is scary

    nice work on the keyboard. How thick are you making the paper on the keys? When you get it all together and use it, will they get squished from pressing on it.

    keep up the good work.

    Prob around 1 or 1.5mm thick only. Dont think they'll get squished, they get xtra hard on the case n poking doesnt do anything to the painted paper. Thank you! :clap:

    Here we go again...

    How it looks like after finalizing every side, about 4 hours ago. I keep the right side kinda plain as I'm a right hander (mouse?). Its not really as fun as the case itself as the thing have like "Handle With Care" stamped all over it. And not a big space for me to explore and turn it into a freak.

    After a heavy dose of gripping glue on the keys and the board itself, prep it for paint. Masking tape.

    I just did a dual layer black+brown like 2 hours ago. Brown's not so obvious now but its dual-tone just like the case itself. First batch of buttons go first. Then one layer of black for the board. And after that another layer to give it the gloss, and immediately brown highlights for dual tone effect.

    Thats it for the whole week + today. Imma highlight it further with brown tomorrow or the next day. And then some slime time (another slow moving process due to the keys =_= ) before 2 final layers of clear spray just like the case.

    Now... I have been thinking will I ever finish with the full set. I feel like making a custom mouse pad for it now. Someone please enrol me in Paper-mache Anonymous.

    Thanks mate. Slimed. Now just another batch of keys to work on (spray n slime). Should be able to finish later (4.20am here now), 1 day earlier than predicted.


    I just can't stop!!!!


    Thanks for the support mate. Yeah, no turning back cos...

    after this.. the mousepad :)

    Btw, I think MoTM's not closed yet hahaha its still a race. More keyboard pix in another 12 hours. Then I'd probably need some sleep before I start the mousepad. 100% paper pulp.
