Default PAINTING case with paint brush? will it work?

I don't feel like scratching my alienware case (plastic) with sand paper.
I just think it will ruin it

using sandpaper will make the paint job look and take better...and no, don't use a brush, spray cans if you don't have a gun.

The more prep you put in the better the end job will look, consider it a return on investment.

But... won't sand paper make the plastic feel all nasty? (not smooth)

The outside plastic of the alienware is very weak for it is just a cover, keep that in mind

That's why there are different grits (intensities) of sandpaper. Rougher for hard work, and less rough for lighter work.

Forget what they said, you can totally paint anything with a paintbrush and some standard wall paint.

Just make sure you rub vegetable oil on everything first so you get a smooth finish.

Oh and post pics once you done!

ahhh, and make sure you use the cheapest water based paint you can find.

What the heck, dont even use brushes just throw the paint on it from the buckets, and let it sit outside in the wind to dry.
