The grey keys have been up for quite some time - and have included a pretty comprehensive collection of different modifier keys from the HHKB - but this is the first that I've seen some of these colorways, which are (in my opinion) odd colorways. Do you know any more info on the keys themselves? I know that they're dyed, and are PBT keys, so I'm assuming they're dyed keys from authentic blank HHKB/PFU keysets, but I'd like to try and get a better idea of the defect probability/quality of the keys themselves.

Thanks for checking out the keys.

All keys are either factory PFU / Topre keys or dyed from factory PFU / Topre keys.

They are all extremely uniform with one caveat.  The modifier keys of the same color are slightly darker due to them starting as grey instead of white.

As far as quality control, I would guarantee their quality.  I hand inspect every key after they have been dyed and so far have only found 2 that had any issues.

That actually explains why the colorways seemed close to factory red/pink/etc. but seemed off in some way. I actually love the maroon (and think it'd go incredibly well with Martin's HKP topre blanks he just had a sale for), but I'll be holding out in hopes for some green keys. Great product though!

Thanks Project.

Do you have any particular green in mind?  I plan to try some other colors soon if I can get ahold of more keys at a decent price.

Yes, there is a bordeaux escape key listed!

I only made 2 of those actually compared to 5+ of the other colors because I had no more keys left!

I was thinking something along the lines of the lime green Topre keys EK has http://www.elitekeyboards.com/products.php?sub=access,toprekeys&pid=tmod_grn, but I'm unable to find a specific color code used to make them. I'd done some digging around GH to look for color codes/keycaps that I thought looked similar, but the ones that I thought would be closest (Toxic keycap set) and found this post (https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=37270.150).

After double checking the colors, some seemed a bit off, but I think that coated Pantone 368-C (http://rgb.to/pantone/coated/368-c) or uncoated Pantone 375-U (http://rgb.to/pantone/uncoated/375-u) would be the closest. Just about every one of the light green colors would probably require that white keycaps are dyed though, since I'd imagine it'd be nearly impossible to create them with a grey base color. I could very well be wrong though, but those are just my thoughts/feelings on the topic.

Is there any progress with this? Lime green arrow keys/fn keys or powder blue would be so awesome...
