Bioshock Themed Nerf Gun

Picture of Bioshock Themed Nerf Gun
I was playing bioshock recently and in the first and second one you are in rapture city, so I thought, why not make a nerf gun out of the stuff in it. In advance the painting I didn't take photos of because I was using acrylic paint just to see how it would turn out.

Step 3: Opening It Up

When you open it up be careful of any springs that fly out, especially this one.

Step 4: Painting

Picture of Painting
Just add layers of paint until you're happy with it, if you want a smooth look, when the paint is half dry grab some paper towel and smudge it a bit. To add decals to it I just used paper and super glue. For more of an effect I used tge green pen and drew green lines on to represent sea weed.

Step 5: Clear Coating

After you have painted everything and you are happy with it give it a nice clear coat finish so it feels like plastic again. If you want to learn how to do the blood splatter for a part if your gun here is the link to the video I learnt it from. http://youtu.be/sDiIrdVpHNM

Step 6: Reassembly

After everything is dry reassemble the gun and make sure all the springs and screws go back.
