Painting a clear starter gun

Ok, so I'm awaiting 2 guns right now. I will definitely be painting them satin black, but I saw Krylon Fusion spray paint for plastics... Has anyone ever used this? or do you have a better choice of paint?

Thanks in advance.

Yes Krylon IS the way to go, but what he is asking is if the "Krylon Fusion" spray would work...

To answer your question, Yes it will work but the paint has a sort of glossy, shiny look to it I recommend just getting flat black or the Krylon camo black.

Also, I don't know if this is still going on...but I saw at walmart that Krylon paint is 2 for 5.

The krylon is #1 recomendation from almost all I have seen post on the topic, some have had success with RC paint (tamiya, off the top of my head). The fusion is great, they say it does not need to be sanded first. But I recomend that you do so that you can feel real safe about it.

Ya either camo black or flatt black

krylon is for the average person and is actualy good keep your distance when sprays at least a foot and a half and have some form of heat on the area to dry fast espeacialy in cold weather condition like this time of year.

Theres another paint but unless you have the equipment stick to krylon is easy to access and is cheap and looks good what gun are you painting specifically?

when using the krylon wash your hands and the gun with soap before using and wipe dry with a clean dust free cloth if you have latex gloves use them after washing you finger emit a grease that cause paint to not adhere to the plastics the paint will stick without sanding if you clean it with soap and water make sure you get rid of all the water and soap before painting.

if you feel the need to sand water sand it in the same direction you be painting left to right you only need a bit of it but i don't recomend doing this unless your completely unsure i've painted guns before using just water and soap and the paints still on after a 2 months

No soap, use rubbing alcohol, works much better and drys better.

dish soap and water works fine he may not have rubbing alchohol on hand so i'm saying if he doesnt have it he doesnt need to go get it won't make the paint job any better imo

I tried painting something last week and I say the Krylon 360 stuff sucks balls for some applications. I hate it so much (I ended up taking a knife to the fan tip to get a circular spray) and the spray pattern too, kind of blotchy and drippy.... Also I had to go over the thing I was doing a few times because it didn't give me a good coating it was really transparent, blotchy, and drippy...

It's fine for painting a gun though, just make sure you do it in a warm place and it's not too cold out. I was doing this at midnight outside and the cans were cold so I blame the low pressure/coverage partly because the cans were cold and the other part is because my can control sucks.

What would being AV'd have to do with SPRAY PAINT? I've used krylon to spray paint my videogame consoles before, and they look beauutiiifuull.

I used Krylon Plasitc fuzion on my gun and it worked great! UNTILLLLL i went to hold it.. the paint is so damn tacky that i dont even even want to touch it. I tried using a heat gun on it to harden the paint but no dice, this was after a day and a half of letting it dry! So pissed as i was i put it in the oven at 200F its lowest setting let it get nice and hot for 10 minutes or so. No luck! I will never use that crap again...
[The gun was a Swiss Arms Sig P260 Clear]
