Introduction: Xbox 360 Black and White Controller Color Mod

Looks great, Has that sort of "the hives" feel to it's color scheme, and the paint on the joysticks / buttons give it a better texture for gripping them.

EDIT: Thought I'd add a better photo without flash, so you can see all it's glorious Detail.

The Camera doesn't give it credit, There's really no visible specs of paint / dust like there is in the photo, In real life it looks completely flat black with nothing in the paint.

Q/A:
Q: whats your xbox live?
A: I don't own an Xbox, I use this controller on my computer for emulators and games that were designed for Paddles instead of keyboards.
Q: whats a paddle?
A: You're looking at one.
Q: what type of spray paint did you use?
A: The kind you buy for 99c at wal-mart, as long as you apply in layers and allow for each layer to dry for 15 minutes, it will come out good and won't be gooey, runny, smudgey, etc. It will just stay on the plastic and not on your hands.
Q: do you have too much time on your hands?
A: Yes, Yes I do.

    technically, this is a control pad, or gamepad, a paddle has buttons and a dimmer switch, like for the old atari's.

    No, not at all. it shouldn't be sticky either, that is if you correctly spray painted it in layers.

    Did you just use paper to make the controllers hand grips longer or did you vacuum form a new case for the controller? If its paper, does it collapse on itself?
