Basic rules of thumb:
Reverse what you've learned
about using spray cans. Hold the can still, do short "zaps"
when using non-adhesive, hand-held stencils. Just make sure
the nozzle is pointing the direction you want, and shoot tiny
Try not to push the button down all the
way, and you will get less paint with each burst. To do a
larger area, move the can, then burst again. This will keep
the edges sharper, as paint only hits the surface from ONE
angle onto the airsoft gun.
topcoat is important, it protects your
work. The clear will scratch before the color layers, preserving the
finish during use.
The topcoat "melts"
all your effects together into a smooth finish, so the airsoft
gun gets that "epoxied" look.
The netting is a cheap laundry bag.

on bands of tasty Khaki Camo. Remember, zap, move, zap. Try
