I managed to get my hands on a second Wii-mote today, but after getting it I realized that it's essentially impossible to tell the different between it and the original one I got. So in order to make them more obviously different, I decided it would be cool to come up with a cool design and paint it onto one of them.
I'm planning to just use a black paint, since this will mostly be an learning experience if I want to try it again. Plus I figured just black and white would give it a cool enough look.
Where I am right now is that I've come up with the basic design I'm going to do thanks to Photoshop. I've got painter's tape, and black primer paint for plastics.
But there is one thing that worries me that I figured I'd ask here and see if anyone had any thoughts about it. Basically the top face of the Wii-mote is a glossy plastic, and I'm concerned that if I try to paint it as is it won't adhere. The only solution I can come up with would be to sand it, but I'd like to keep the shine there if possible.
To give a point of reference the glossy plastic is a lot like the case of the DS lite.
