Capacitive Keypad colour/cover?


#1

Hi,

I’ve been looking at getting one of these keypads https://shop.pimoroni.com/products/sparkfun-capacitive-touch-keypad-mpr121 for a project I’m thinking about. However it appears to be bright red and orange, and not a colour I would want showing, and am trying to work out what I would need to do to get the aesthetics wife friendly!

I have been reading up on these sorts of keypads on various sites and haven’t seen anything that helps me with the following questions:

Can you cover the keypad in anything? If so - are you limited in what material and what thickness? Can you paint the front of it (and what sort of paint)?

Thanks in advance.
