The first one is mine. topical on this topic showed that not everyone is willing to paint and color netbooks. Many are very conservative in their views on technology, but the gloss is still frowned upon. Especially for them, I publish the second version of the topic. How to get rid of the gloss on the lid, but leave a decent looking netbook. Not only that, it will look even better than the glossy surface (at least I think so).
So, the decision to just paint with spray paint is not a good one. Not all paints adhere well to plastic, you need a primer. Oh, and most of them will make the surface as glossy. Plus, the coating has such paints are not very resistant to wear and tear. But there is a way out.
This primer enamel, especially for plastic:
Degrease the netbook cover. Tape it with painter’s tape in two steps. First the bottom part separately so that the paint doesn’t get inside.
Next, we glue on the very edge of the cover, so that the paint does not stick the cover to the screen panel. Otherwise you won’t be able to disassemble it later (in case you need it).
Apply as directed, evenly and from a distance of 30-35cm. Otherwise it is possible to make small mistakes in painting.
This enamel will eventually create great touch relief! I’m attaching a macro photo of the netbook so you can see what I’m talking about (it’s a closed netbook, the lid with the paint on top):
Here is a more general view :
