Step 1: Materials
AIRSOFT GUN: That one should have been obvious!
SPRAY PAINT: I recommend using dark colours of spray paint unless you are doing something strange but cool like a yellow wasp camo.
GLOVES: You might think, what are gloves for? You will not want to get spray paint on your fingers or hands or even arms if your can is that messy. (Ours was)
SCREWDRIVER: If you would like to remove parts from your airsoft gun so they don't get painted, simply take out screws and put them in a jar so you don't forget to put them back. (We didn't because our gun was cheap and we might have broken something. it is not suggested that you remove parts if you do not know exactly how to put them back!)
MASKING TAPE OR PAINTERS TAPE: You need this to cover the parts of the gun that you would not like to paint such as the trigger, sights, grip, or stock.
KNIFE OR RAZOR BLADE: I used a small knife to cut away the tape around the edges of the details that I didn't want to paint.
Step 2: Apply Tape
MAKE SURE TO TAPE THE ORANGE TIP OF YOUR GUN! It is against the law not to have an orange tip.
Carefully cut around the edges of the tape in order to create a nice edge. Be sure not to cut towards yourself incase your knife slips. Once you have finished taping, you can move outside with your spray paint.
