First off your gonna have to learn some things about electronics. For starters, how to read a schematic. How to translate a schematic into an actual circuit layout. And so on.

Look up some info on DIY pedals on google. You'll find many sites, and will gain a lot of info through reading.

a good way would be to read the ultimate pedal building thread.
My Rig:
American Standard Telecaster
Fender Starcaster
Sp. Edition Jack Daniels Strat (Modded)
Vox AC15CC1


Stuff I've Built:
Telecaster Deluxe
Telecaster Junior
Pedalboard (from a shelf )
the odd pedal

I would start with a kit. Building from scratch is a lot harder than building from a kit which is more paint by the numbers but is a great starting point. There are some great fuzz kits out there.

you could also check out the Build Your Own Clone website if you want to buy a kit. they have good instructions, you don't even really need to understand schematics, just basic electronic type stuff, and soldering

Inavader Jim also made a tutorial on painting pedals, seeing as you want to put a pink unicorn on it.
Painting pedals is not as simple as slapping on the paint, it's a bit more complex.

The baking part isn't.
That's kinda what I was talking about. Also, using primers, is also a bit more complex than slapping on paint.
There's drying times,
Drips,
Etcetera

EDIT: Wrong person perhaps? I'm quite confident someone made a pedal painting tutorial. Then, it's obviously not you.

I thought for some reason in my mind you made that... Except it was a thread. I must've had a pretty damn realistic dream(Who dreams about going on UG in their dreams...)

all you do for baking is set the oven at 150 and stick it in there for an hour. nothing hard. pedal painting is so much easier than guitar painting.

and when did I make a pedal painting tut??
