Brass Blaster by CaelynTek Brass Blaster by CaelynTek
This is the first of two "Blasters" I'm converting/painting for my Steampunk costume. At the top you see the gun in it's original form next to the gun just after I started on the metallic.

Two of these toy guns cost me 12 dollars shipped from Think Fast Toys [link]

I first saw this gun in the gallery of a user of Steampunk Empire: [link]

The gun is slightly smaller than most would like, but I have small hands so it fits me ok. This would not be the best gun for someone with large hands.

Metallic finishes achieved using AMACO Rub n Buff.

The book and spy glass are purchased items and are used here only as props for the photo of the new pistol.

To see even prettier photos of this blaster go here [link]

Ah-HA! I've seen this pistol modified by some locals but none could really tell me where to get them. Only answer was "7/11" but that doesn't help me. Good on you. If I'm gonna take the time to color-mod ANY toy gun it has to be damn pretty to start with and this fits the standard.

Yes it does work quite well for a Victorian era prototype. :) I still have that second one unpainted... gonna have to do it one of these days and sell it. (Already sold the first one)

It just takes awfully well to steampunk. It is just the right balance between reality and fantasy.

Well I don't know about that, but thanks anyway :)

I wish I had to tools and skills to work with real brass instead of plastic. :)

Hiya, lovely paint job you had done with your gun, I'm wondering what material did you use to paint for the edges? (e.g. the black parts)
