Scratched Keys, any way to fix.

I was trying to pull up the keys on my keyboard (K70 MK.2 RGB SE) with a paperclip and scratched a key. Is there any way to fix this damage? It not extremely deep and goes about half way up the key.

replacement is not a fix

the caps are just plastic, so some sanding, filings, and paintings will do

I only see all the keys on corsairs website. Is there a way I could get an individual key?

The sanding and filings will make it uneven won't it? Also the keys have a "roughness" to them., how would i preserve that?

It's the only way to properly fix the keyboard, not the key itself.

Sanding will not leave a texture similar to all the other keys, neither will painting, and it will actually make it look worse.

You could contact them, if they're nice they might send you one for free.

Resin and paint will cover most of it up if you're not too picky (or if you're skilled enough to make it look good), but honestly it'd be cheaper and easier to get a replacement set. Sounds like you enjoy aesthetics anyway so it should be right up your alley

Individual keys are out there for sale (https://www.ebay.co.uk/i/323454828401?chn=ps) but at £4 per key (when a full set is £15-30ish) it isn't really worth it.
