Intro: How to Do Simple Paint Job for Airsoft Guns.
In this instructable, i will show how to do a simple airsoft paint job to use on your gun. I am using a cheap plastic mini auto in case i make a mistake.
Step 1: Materials
1 roll of thin masking tape
Step 2: Masking Tape
Mask off any areas that you do not want to be painted. Make sure to cover safety, tip of barrel, trigger, loading port, and any other functional spots. I chose a striped design
Step 3: Painting
Lay down newspaper so u dont get paint on the floor.
Spray paint in breif strokes, holding the can about 10 inches above the gun. Let dry for about 10-15mins if inside or 5-10mins if outside. Gently peel off the masking tape, and try not to scratch the paint. The pain becomes more scratch resistant in about 2 days.
Step 4: Finished
Congradulations, you have just spray painted you airsoft gun. Choose different colors as you please. Dark reds, browns greens, tans, and blacks make the perfect camo for woodland, i chose silver because it was all i had at the time. Please comment, i can change some steps and answer questions. This was my first instructable. Picture 4 is my paintjob for my AEG, enjoy.
P.S. To add a worn look, use sandpaper and rub off the paint on corners, edges, and on the base.
