This simple and quick keyboard mod took more time to dry than paint, and it can be easily customized. Want to feature Saturn? UFOs? More nebulae? You got it, Neil. You drive this spaceship.
Step 1: Remove key
Sand very lightly with fine sandpaper. This helps the paint bond to the surface.
Step 2: Paint
I used some basic acrylic paint, mixed liberally and often with water, and used a very fine-tipped paintbrush along with a toothpick to make those smaller stars.
Using a picture I found online, I worked off of the image adding a lot of watery layers of color to my space bar to give the Milky Way more depth. I wanted to get the background colors right, before drawing in any stars.
When you feel good about the base layer, start dotting on your stars. Some can be watery distant universes, others bolder and brighter blue supergiants, and others tiny toothpick-drawn stars to add depth. This is space after all - try and capture it's infinity
Step 3: Protect
And I think it's gonna be a long, long time till touchdown brings you round to find...this clear layer has dried. 8 hours, in fact. Wait it out Rocket Man
