    So my ring had started to chip, and I decided to sand it down to get plain black. I was almost done when AHHH!! two of the three prongs broke off doh! So I ordered a new ring and trackball [both pink] and decided to experiment with this one until the other comes in. I painted it with nailpolish! It took a good 30mins to dry fully (otherwise it was soft to the touch) and looks delightfully tacky. So far it has lasted to my wear and tear, but we shall see. Just an idea for any of you who are daring enough to try it...



    ps. sorry my trackball is soooo yellow and grossy!

    That looks really good. You should try to leave it on to see how long it lasts. I'm not saying I'd do it to mine, at least that color, but....

    either way, let us know!

    I painted mine w/ a black sharpie. Let dry for 10 or so min. and took clear fingernail polish and used it as a clear coat. Also painted my trackball black w/ a sharpie. Turned out nice!

    Hey you!!!

    Remember that you can change the colour of the trackball with ColourPearl.
    Its a free download and make your "yellow and grossy" trackball light up with colour.

    Cheers!

    Nice job w/ the pink.. Not my bag, but whatev..

    Word of note: If you're doing black, or want to get to the base color, don't sand or paint it. Just leave the ring in bleach for a few days and the silver will literally wipe right off. Trust me. I already did that with my ring so now I just have to get some Rit dye and black out my trackball.
