Hello my name is FXAscensionz and I thought i would show how I custom painted my nerf guns.
Lets start of with something smaller, The Nerf Maverick. I chose a battle- damaged black and silver but feel free to use any colour that suits you. Lets Get Started!

Step 1: Gathering Equipment

You Will Need:

A Nerf Maverick (obviously)
A Phillips Head Screwdriver
Sandpaper (optional)
A Can of Plastic Primer
A Can of Black Paint
A Can of Silver Paint
And Patience

Hi can i paint my nerf with acrylic paint??
This was really helpful! Thanks for the straightforward guide :)
No problem I'm glad you enjoyed it :D
I like this, will be trying it later. Like you I am in the UK, technically it is illegal to make anything that could be mistaken for a real gun (I'm a lawyer and just got a colleague of mine to check), but I wouldn't be too concerned as you don't take it outside. <br> <br>Anyway, I am thinking of a similar colour scheme to yours but perhaps with some drybrushing on the silver to make it look dirtier.
nice i painted mine in the same colour scheme but with a few bits of green in the indented lines around the release button and where the slide is <br>
You know it's illegal to paint the tip of a nerf gun black, right?
yes, of course. im going to go rob a bank with this. i will get &quot;did you get that of hellboy or something?&quot;
The rules are different in the UK
thanks now my maverick, which i modded to shoot 3 times as far now looks awsome, except i couldnt put it back together, have to try again. thanx though<br>
no problem im glad you enojyed the instructable
black and gold looks awsome if ya wanna try it<br>
just a little note, add some orange, you do not want to go outside with it and get shot because someone thinks its real
Hi thanks for the advice but I live in te UK and I don't take the gun anywhere outside my property
Good job, I really like the worn look you gave it. <br>Instead of using Plastic Primer, you can also use spray paint made for plastic (Krylon and Rustoleum both have them, though there are very few colors to choose from). Also I was told that it is better to add a layer of clear coat/varnish to seal your paint job (especially if you want to use acrylic paint for detailing).
Thank you for the advice I really appreciate the feedback!
