As for paint, have you tried the ones you suggested yourself then? I'm not sure I understand what you mean by "LightBase" - it's just a general term? Not a brand?
Could you please link me to the type of paint you refer to in a common brand like Glidden or Sherman Williams? Thanks very much-
I'm not sure offhand if the Sony will actually draw more than the normal 0.25-0.5amps or whatever a standard PC USB provides, but it'll hopefully work much faster/longer with your new 2amp.
LightBase is a general term that's often written right on the can of paint.
I personally have been using:
-"ColorPlace brand (from Walmart), flat, interior, Light-Base."
A gallon is about $10 and it can also be tinted different light colors or greys or left alone as a clean bright white.
I ask the for the gallon of LightBase to have:
-"4 ounces of white pigment added (or 4Y of KX pigment added)"
which helps make sure it's as bright and neutral-white as possible without messing with it.
This leaves you with a bright white paint that doesn't mess with your colors, and it's great at hiding imperfections in both the surface and paintjob, and the price is hard to beat...and you'll have extra leftover if you need to fix a scratch or persistent dirty-spot.
If you prefer not to shop at Walmart, most places that sell paint should have an inexpensive interior flat tintable LightBase which can also have 4ounces of white-pigment added to a gallon can (or 1ounce added to a quart can).
