Introduction: BB Gun Spray Paint Can Art

About: 18 years working for Thermacore Inc. but, now unemployed. I work with my wife running an at home day care and Ebay store which are both doing pretty good. I am a part time artist (for the most part self taug...
 As usual I did not think I was going to put this on Instructables so I did not take pictures when we were doing this painting.

My son and I are always looking for something fun to shoot with his BB Gun in our back yard (we do not shoot animals).This is BB Gun Art. My son and I were shooting some old spray paint cans with his bb gun. I put a streched canvas under the cans and when you hit the can it sprays everywear and all over the canvas.

I know what you are thinking How Dangerous.

It is not dangerous unless you are near a flame. I would not throw one in a fire but, puncturing it is no more dangerous than pressing the tip to paint with it. Just don't do it with a hammer and nail unless you want paint all over yourself. We were about 15 to 20 feet away. You do not want to use a table that you do not want paint all over and not to be near anything else you do not want paint on because it will make a mess. It was a fun way to get rid of some old paint and now my paint cans are safer to throw away.

    Careful, you could but an eye out with that art. An original Crossman-Pollack. I love it.
