Guess what I worked on all week end! If you guessed “worked on a steampunk style re-do of my Nerf Gun,” you’d be right. If you guessed “spent way too much time playing the new Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild”… well you’d be right, too. Either way, from this combination this Nerf gun was born:
There are A LOT of things that I learned from this project. First of all, always pay attention to the inside of the gun when you take it apart. I got it to function thanks to YouTube videos, but I also threw it a few times and the barrel doesn’t come out to be reloaded anymore. I’m not sure why…
Second, you may want to use a primer that adheres to the plastic better. I used gesso on most of it. It worked fine, but I’m not certain of the exact durability of the paint.
Third, I used hot glue for the embellishments. Don’t. Hot glue is messy and does not work well.
I had planned on perhaps doing a tutorial, but I got carried away. If any one is interested in an in depth tutorial, let me know in the comments!
Here are a few more pictures:
