a much needed upgrade to my skill set moving into the future of games and art and all that. Trying to do 30 minutes a day with no goal in mind other than to learn tools,menus brushes.I was shown a skull as a tutorial last month at work it does seem to be a nice sampler of  problems/solutions etc plus even abstracted its familiar to everyone .

Nerf mod/repaint- Recon CS-6 and Spectre Rev-5


painting materials: 

  • Krylon  fusion for plastics spray paint black
  • Krylon  fusion for plastics spray paint cappuccino
  • cheap Hair spray 
  • Ceramcoat  -Burnt Umber 2025
  • Ceramcoat -Trail Tan 2435
  • Testors matte spray paint of your choice for the main color .i used a matte sand fpt the guns and medium green for the clips.
  • sand paper
  • big cheap brushes
  • water cup 
  • big sheet of card board or some place safe to paint
  • old never to be used again towel 

some basic steps:

  1. buy Nerf guns
  2. buy some Plastic airsoft scopes or gun bits off the internet.
  3. apply black spray paint to everything .keep all parts and accessories apart. let dry 
  4. mask off areas of choice .
  5. Spray masked areas with cappuccino paint
  6. spray heavely with hairspray to easy paint removal.
  7. spray with your color of choice .Tan in my example .let dry 
  8. remove masking material
  9. wet sand paper and gentally scour the newly painted surface (the non black area) .it will fall apart and turn to pulp in your hand but it should add cool nicks and scratches .Its really easy to go over board here .wipe off extra grim after this is done .
  10. Apply a liberal coating of thinned down brown paint to the newly painted  and weathered areas .Let dry and then wipe of raised areas with a damp towel leaving the recesses brown and worn looking.
  11. Apply a liberal coating of thinned down tan paint to the black areas.Let dry and then wipe of raised areas with a damp towel.
  12. assemble.
  13. destroy your enemies.
