Ah, I've been curious about this one. For manufacturing, does anyone know how this is normally applied? Looks like sometimes it's just printed on the surface, but is there also a way to do it with an additive in the raw material?
That Logitech keyboard (K780) on Sketchgrad's imageboard was actually my project here at Logitech.
The CMF designer and I worked very closely with our rubber supplier to find a way to mold rubber with flakes.
We spent weeks in their labs to fine-tune the mix and find a recipe that could actually be molded.
We really wanted to avoid to paint as we are striving for authenticity and are trying to not use just surface decoration as much as possible.
But it was a pretty slow and hard process with lots of "can't be done" along the way but it was fun to get this into MP and to prove the doubters wrong
