I bet everyone has seen that pin on pinterest on how to make steampunk guns and props. You just need a toy gun, some bits and bobs, black spray paint and Rub and Buff Metallic Finish. This project was so simple, but had a lot of steps and drying time.
I got the plastic gun a Dollar tree, roughed it up a bit for some texture, glued a bunch or random doodads on, including plastic gens, googly eyes, metal studs, gears, game pieces, paper brads, etc.
After a coat of black spray paint, i added the rub and buff in two colors, copper and pewter, and for a colorful light effect used some nail polish on some of the brads.
I really love the effect and want to make so much more steampunk weapons! I also would like to try the rub and buff technique on some extra funko pops i got. Who things a steampunk style ariel would be cool?
