Step 4: Paint!
- 1 qt of sherwin william's interior acrylic latex satin finish
- Miniwax polycrylic protective finish
- Two foam brushes (2" and 3")
- Tack cloth
- 220 grit sand paper
Pick your favorite most bright color and go to town, using a foam brush to make it smooth. Use the different sizes of your brushes to cover the areas you need. You could use a high gloss paint, but since high gloss paint is hard for me to control I used an acrylic latex satin finish, and then finished with a glossy protective coat (step to come).
Sand with with 220 grit sand paper in between the color coats, while using tack cloth each time. Wait for it to dry. Do 3 coats, or as needed to get a solid color.
*To paint right above the keys, make sure the back of the keys are taped off. Then, smash the keys down with your arm and use a small brush.
