    Hello, pretty new to this forum so unsure whether you guys would know anything about this but here it goes anyway!

    I'm wanting to paint a monitor (plastic) the same colour as a apple wireless keyboard, that aluminum type effect. The monitor i have is a HP 22xi which is pretty much identical colour but the stand has been scratched and chipped away.

    So basically i was wondering if any of you had experience in this or knew what touch up paint pen/spray paint to use!

    Any tips would be great

    No clue. Based on my model building days, some spray paints are made for plastic. The question is will it look like brushed aluminum or aluminum paint? And how susceptible will it be to being scratched off?

    Think i'm going to just opt for painting the stand with blackboard paint and use it as a handy notes area, as you said - aluminum paints exist but will it look the same.. doubtful. So may as well go all out craziness and opt for blackboard style.
