Painted Weapons Picture Thread

beautifull but violating the law back here in portugal, once more is clear that most players avoid fullfilling the law (bad or not) and situations like this one Daniel will soon bring an end to airsoft in portugal, specially when teams clearly avoid painting the guns as mentioned here before by stuntman,

I finished painting this yesterday. I'm thinking about using a grey wash or something to make the green a bit less flat colour.

Is there anything I can use as a sort of finish to reduce the wear on the paint? I've done a couple of coats but I've noticed it wearing a bit on the pistol grip already.

depending on the brand, it can take a while to set properly. Rustoleum rubs off like crazy for a few weeks after I use it. Try a high quality matte coat, like alumahyde II clear

Rustoleum has always worked well for me, it has taken quite a bit of time for it to come off.

 

Several coats is a good idea and also to use primer could've worked. You just have to face the fact that whatever is painted on your gun that you touch often will wear off, sure a primer would help but it would wear after long term use. A really good idea is to sand-blast the parts first to create an uneven surface, almost like stippling but a lot smaller, the paint will stick in that and wont rub off as easily. Though if you're trying to paint a rubberized surface then scratch that.

 

One of my old friends painted his real M4 with DuraCoat, after a few years it's got some scratches and a few chips but that paint is sticking to the gun like crazy! Too bad it's kinda expensive.
