You could also try to use dye stripper, and then dye your own key. Do you happen to have a black on white double shot ESC key? That would likely take the dye very well. It's also super easy.

But it won't be as nice as the white on red Cherry Corp Red Esc key. If you don't mind waiting a year, it might be available for the Round 4 group buy.

No, only doubleshots I have are black.  I did see Ascaii's GB on Deskthority, and am hoping to get a set or two.  Unfortunately those are the only ones I've seen, but I guess I am fortunate in that I'm typing this on some pretty nice black doubleshots right now (albeit with a left shift key in place of the space bar as I am waiting for some epoxy to harden up in my soon to be space bar moddin' and gluin' juig.)

I'm thinking a white and black doubleshot Filco might be kind of cool in an old school kind of way...
