Valentino had previously made a Jason mask out of a cheap hockey mask from eBay two years ago and learned all of the techniques for painting “hocks” from the fright stuff forums. Once he got a PS4 he decided he really wanted a custom controller, and thought a Friday the 13th inspired controller would be a blast.
Starting with the basic controller.
The whole thing is held together with just 5 screws. 4 on the back, 1 inside.
A Scotch Brite pad was used to de-gloss the plastic so paint adheres better.
Krylon Fusion to paint
Paint was given a week to dry.
Adobe Illustrator was used to trace over an image of Jason’s mask from Freddy vs. Jason. He used green frog tape to cut out masks for the chevrons. He then taped the rest of the controller up to protect it from the red paint – regular Krylon red.
He used a X-Acto knife to weather the chevrons.
He used multiple washes of different shades of brown and black mixed together. Using multiple washes creates lots of subtle layers to really make it seem like the controller has seen some wear.
Sanded, clear coated, and re-assembled
