Whats the best type of paint to use for steel? Answered
Okay, so I am currently in the process of starting to make a .380 machine pistol. So far, I have cutted out the tubing for the lower reciver. Right now I'm thinking of way of coloring it. I've read that some people heat it up with a blowtorch to color it, however, it turns to blue,purple,and brown, not the black or a nice gun blue as i'm hoping it to be. So now I'm thinking of buying black spray paint, but I have no idea whether the color would rub off after a while or if it might become too shiny. Any suggestions on whats the best kind of paint (brand,type,etc.) for this type of thing? All because I want to make this as best looking as possible,or do you suppose it would look best if I kept it in it's natural steel color? P.S. What kind of sling do you think would look best? Denim Brown Leather or canvas that is dyed black?
