Picture of Faux Copper Patina Paint Finish
I was building a bench power supply from an old ATX power supply, and wanted something unique. I went with a minimalist Steampunk theme.

Step 1: PREP

Paint Selection
  • Copper colored hammered finish spray paint
    • I wanted the varied surface that hammered paint has
  • Light moss (green) colored spray paint
    • for the patina
Preparation
  1. Disassemble the power supply enclosure
  2. Remove any stickers and/or labels
  3. Lightly sand the enclosure
  4. Clean to remove dust

Thank you for the kind comments. Light blue paint can be used instead of the green.
