A Nerf Nite Finder gun that was disassembled and reworked with acrylic paint, polymer clay and a few cameos. It still works just fine, even the 'laser' sight.

More stuff that was done a while ago. I'm not sure why it never got posted. The brainchild of ~JavanDrakar and I, we're slowly decorating the small library nook of the apartment with a Steampunk/Lovecraft theme.

The other completed pistol can be found here: [link]

Here is a detailed view of Lucy's thumb. [link]

If you are interested in commissioning a similar pistol, please note me.


If you like this, please consider commissioning me. [link]

I found the same nerf gun at a flea market today. Mine isn't going to look this awesome though.

Great job, really love the shade of gold, and the steampunky ornaments along the side. :)

How did you go about attaching the polymer clay pieces?

I use epoxy. I've found it to be a strong bond.

I would love to put something together similar to this. Do you have a tutorial?

I don't, sorry. But I'll try to give a basic overview.

A friend dissembles it for me and I put a base coat of black spray paint on it. I use metallic craft acrylics and a dry brush technique for the refinishing and then my friend puts it back together (because I'm terrible with the technical side of things). I paint on finishing details and seal it.

I think you can do most of it without taking it apart though, if that would be easier. Sorry I can't be of more help.

Wow. Just wow. Participating in a steampunk LARP just became that much more attractive. :D

Thank you! I think a steampunk LARP would already be pretty awesome. ;)
