    Yeah, I'm new to this, I'm thinking of using a stencil(s), and I have a few questions...

    1. What type of paint should I use on my DS?
    2. How would I go about making it glossy?
    3. What color shouldn't go on a black DS?
    4. What does polyurethane spray do?

    Those are the only concerns I can think of at the moment, any other advice would be appreciated too.

    Haha, funny thing is, that topic kind of inspired me to paint mine.

    But yeah, hopefully mine doesn't end up like that.

    Over there.
    I don't know about painting, maybe just buy a custom skin.

    If you do though, the only question I can answer is regarding the colours on a black DS. Go for green, red, or gold (cool, evil, bling respectively [​IMG] ) And do not use corrosive paints? But any paint may have a trouble drying.

    If you do decide to paint it what are you going to do in the time when it's drying?!

    If I were you i would consider what dark aura 12 said. Get a skin.

    It's funny that he still thinks he did an amazing job.

    Yeah... Better not tell him that his DS is ugly as sin...

    Let's do a side by side comparison of different DS Paint Jobs:

    That Zelda one is just plain sweet. I like the glowingness on the back.
