Last week we took Pebbles to PetCo to get a bath, but mainly to have her toenails trimmed. While we were waiting we stopped into Ross and looked around. Found a bin with Nerf guns in it and they were cheap. I grabbed one with the idea that I would see if I could steampunk it. Seen several videos where people have done so and they looked pretty awesome.
This was a fun project. I took it all apart and then painted all the parts black. I then used what is called Rub and Buff, found it at Hobby Lobby and you apply and the buff and it gives it an aged look. Came in the colors I wanted. Once dry, I reassembled and then tested. Still works great and looks good in my office. I will be looking to do a few more of these as I think they would be cool gifts and it was easy and fun to make.
