Dont know if its better to draw your design on to it or have design underneath, but depends if you looking directly over it or on an angle, it could mess up your design if you move around.
Did the quick dot outline around the entire design
Tried a couple different techniques. Top Left is the best finish to me, the others were trying to draw the actual line rather then dotting the entire piece, it leaves a real nice and neat finish, should go for that way and see what you come up with.

I like how that has turned out I will try it tomorrow I believe.
Sorry for the lack of updates my roommate is the painter and hes has gotten into Mass Effect3 for the past weeks so nothing has gotten done. But on a lighter note my buttons for my controllers came in.
I will give you a hint on the paint job. This one is necromorph themed.
This one is Issac themed
Hopefully more updates are to come. I have to do some work on my car so hopefully I will get back to this project soon. I"m going to kick my roommate to start painting today its going to be 70 today so its going to be perfect for paint. On that note what paint does everyone suggest. I was thinking dupli-color or rust-o-lium. Krylon I heard was good too. I have always used Dupli-color to do my projects.

I have used Krylon fusion here..here..and here..
Duplicolor vinyl/fabric spray here..
They both work well.. Dupli color is a bit thinner paint than the krylon fusion..
It all comes down to the colors you want.. Unless you can use an airbrush or paint gun, rattle can paint is limited in colors..
Just make sure you sand the substrate down with 600 grit wash and rinse..
Then either SEM light gray etching primer, or SEM adhesion promoter.
U can edit the post if u feel like its a jack.. Just wanted to show proof positive..

It has been awhile but I wanted to request updates. Liked how the mod was progressing hope it didn't get abandoned.
No it hasnt been abandoned. I live in the New England and the weather has not been warm enough of dry enough even for me to paint and that is pretty much the last step to this project before I can put in lights and the trimmings in. Hopefully the next coming week will be more forgiving. Sorry guys.

I feel you on the paint issue. The humidity has been a terror here in NYC too.. Try a dehumidifier..
I would love to use one but the only problem is that I have moved the painting outside due to fumes and my roommates complaining. So I am at a hold still till then... I'm bummed right now.
