I actually once painted an entire room gold, and then covered with blue
painters tape to make traces.  I painted over the traces with green.  When
the whole thing dried, I pulled off the tape voila a giant room-sized
circuit board.

I ended painting over it though, long story.  I don't know if I have any
photos.  Fun project.

The trick is to be sure the painter's tape is highest quality and stuck so
the paint does not bleed over the edges.
