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 1: Materials
These are the materials I used;
1. Acrylic paint, gold and silver
2. Mini screwdriver
3. Paper towel
5. (Optional) Green pen
6. Clear coat (not pictured)
7. (Optional) Red spray paint if you want the blood splatter effect
8. Nerf maverick
9. Super glue
Step 2: Taking Out The Screws
Take out all the screws in the maverick.
Step 3: Opening It Up
When you open it up be careful of any springs that fly out, especially this one.
Step 4: 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.
