Again within the 1980s, computer systems had been largely shades of beige or gray plastic. Whereas this look may appear dated by right now’s requirements of slim, glass and steel gadgets, there’s no query that these retro colour schemes instantly carry again fond recollections of the early days of non-public computing. Effectively, now it seems that you would be able to paint no matter you need within the colour of the basic Commodore 64.
Polish firm Retrohax sells this spray paint that’s aptly named “Commodore 64C Beige.” It’s truly the colour of the C64C, which got here out in 1986, reasonably than the precise colour of the unique 1982 C64, nevertheless it’s shut sufficient for me. The spray paint produces a pleasant satin beige end, although priming is beneficial to make sure good adhesion.
Retrohax additionally gives basic laptop paints in Atari XE/ST Gray and Amiga 500 Beige. Sadly, on account of flight restrictions, the paint is presently solely obtainable in Poland, however its makers hope to ship it to different international locations in some unspecified time in the future. For now, perhaps we are able to discover some off-the-shelf beige paint that’s comparable in colour.
I feel these items would look nice on all types of contemporary gadgets. I’m contemplating portray the aluminum elements of my iMac with this, or perhaps the again of my iPhone. What would you paint with these items?
