How To Make A Steampunk RayGun

As part of my very slow-going project to create an entire steampunk outfit I present to you my ray gun!

I bought a cheap plastic water gun for £4 from ASDA, and painted it!  I used acrylic paint mixed with a little glue to help it stick and layered on some brown for the main body.  I had to do two layers to fully cover the green but I didn’t worry too much about getting it the exact same colour as I wanted a slightly worn look to the finish product.  I used a darker shade for some of the details on the gun, and an orange-brown for the top which houses the water.  That part was originally light yellow and I thought about leaving it be as the colour kind of went but it looked too plasticy so I decided to cover it all in paint!

To finish I used a gold paint stamp and pressed it on to the gun to make it sparkly and pretty,and also to age it.
