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
  1. Disassemble the power supply enclosure
  2. Remove any stickers and/or labels
  3. Lightly sand the enclosure
  4. Clean to remove dust
Love the idea of gining an atx supply some character
Thank you for the comment.
wow! great and easy effect to do! great job my friend!
Thank you for the kind comments. Light blue paint can be used instead of the green.
