Custom Controller
Ok guys I'm getting ready to make me a new controller and its going to be 95% custom maybe 100% depends if i get bored and want to try my hand at installing LED's. The color of the controller is going to be ,from left to right, silver, or white haven't decided, to blue fade. I am going to do a Blue to silver fade of KEQ o the bottom. I am stuck on what would look better when it comes to buttons. I want to do either clear, dark blue, or white buttons all around including the R1 R2 L1 L2, start select and ps button, and the d-pad and tcxs. If clear I am going to make a mold. other wise I am just going to buy them.

RE: Custom Controller
hmm
A silver to white fade would look...meh kinda boring I guess coz tha shades don't have significant depth
Blue to white shade would be better IMO coz it creates a true fade like visual
If its a dark or navy blue that would b more dramatic in depth visually coz in between where tha main fades depth is it has a vast array of blueish tones
Which would look great visually
And with that I would go for white buttons
If its a light sky blue then tha fade won't b as deep or dramatic coz it already has large amounts of white in tha sky blue
IMO that wouldnt look so good
What colour is tha blue paint and blue buttons?
A nice spray of sparkle on tha finished painted casing would look good IMO if you use a blue paint
Silver won't take sparkle too well coz it already has an element of shine in it
Silver is great in small amounts IMO
But it really depends on tha silver u use
LEDs look good if you have tha right colour scheme IMO

Have u looked up painting your controller on YouTube?

RE: Custom Controller
Its a deep blue gloss. I've also already painted a couple of controllers and they didn't turn out bad.

RE: Custom Controller
I've decided to do either bright orange or a burnt orange fade to deep blue with white buttons.

I asked my dad bc he does some body work on cars and is pretty good at painting them about what would go good with blue. But now I also bought a navy blue because i wasn't sure that my blue was dark enough.
