A commission from a friend for a Steampunk Dredd gun for a cosplay. Modded from a Nerf gun using brass bits, Bondo body filler, and various brands of metalizer and plastic paints.

Very creative and atypical.  Also looks like something Hellboy would fancy.

Paint. Hmmm, lets see. I undercoated  with Krylon paint for plastic. The grip I sprayed with Plasti-dip. I figured it would be less likely to rub off from handling then paint. The front I sprayed with Brass Alclad II lacquer, and the cylinder and barrel were sprayed with Testors Gunmetal, then buffed. I weathered the with brass with splotched of black, while  I used Silver Rub n; Buff to add wear to the black and the cylinders. Finally I sprayed the brass with a paint called Glossy Wood Tone to darken it, followed with clear metalizer sealer, and finally a coat of clear matte finish.

Hope that helps. :)
