    I also fancy your skull. How did you get the dark stain onto the crevices of the skull surface? Did you use any other skull to model this paint job? Hope you didn't use your own skull.

    It's magic! Hey, a guy's gotta have a few tricks, right? hehe. Glad you liked em and I just did the skull in a way I thought I'd like it..just in case I get stuck with it..is there a market for bronze skulls?

    I actually have a skull here that I would love to paint, but unfortunately, I can't find a duplicate. I'd really hate to stuff it up, which is definitely on the cards... haha

    Nice work once again.

    Cheers,

    Hi guys, here's a bit of stuff I've been working this week. Sorry, I've had to back off being on the computer to meet some hard deadlines. Thanks for checking them out



    Lots of nerf scouts in the works..some of these you'll see are not quite finished

    I'm going to have to say though... I think like GirlyGamer's cosmetic mods than yours at the moment. Sure yours look bad ass, but you know it gets to the point where they all look the same, it's not a good thing. I'm sure you can be more creative than that!

    I appreciate the opinion and I know what you mean. I do a lot of guns and a lot are requested in certain styles. I wish they could all be 100% unique. I had to decide as to whether to post only a couple really unique guns or post new stuff that I'm proud of. I decided to go with letting the people reading the thread decide if it's worth their time. That's worked for the past year without any complaints. (I don't consider what you said as a complaint).

    Not to drag her back into the discussion, but Angela is super creative and has a lot of artistic talent. I count her a a friend and I hope she makes a ton of cool stuff in the future because I love to see it. She has also shown me the value of using decals and I appreciate that.

    Thanks again for the comment and I hope I'll get a chance to make something to impress you sooner than later.

    I like both you and GirlyGamer's work. Yours more milsim paint job while hers more colourful and decal work. Both are different but professional looking at the same time. Mine is amateurish and pale in comparison.

    Like you said, you have to do those jobs as according to what have been requested in the commissions. So it is more important your jobs satisfy and impress your clients. Littlebro is not paying you money for you to impress him.

    I appreciate that and I know where you're coming from with your statement. I will say that he did take the time to post what he thought and that, to me, shows an interest in seeing someone become better. Buyers are a small percentage of the people looking, so I do care what they think (to an extent of course). I love a challenge and this might just make me work that much harder and that's a good thing

    Ok finally some more photos to share. As usual, time had to be spent working and not getting to play around on the computer last week. Here's a mixture of WIPs and also finished guns. The crappier photos are from the phone. I cannot wait to get the new 4S for the better camera alone

    Hey mate, love your work, inspiring stuff. Just wondering exactly what that black primer you're using is? No doubt it'll be impossible to get in Aus, but worth a shot.

    Thanks Cray! Just the standard stuff will do. Krylon or Rustolium is my choice, but other "house" brands should work just as good. Just do a few coats and plenty of time between them. Are they strict about paint there, or just not the same brands?

    Just the brands mate. Occasionally I come across Krylon, but rarely the fusion line. I've found a few supplier's of Rustoleum, but can be a bit expensive.

    Ah, I just wondered, some major stores here in the US don't even carry paint because of the liability or whatever nonsense.. Sounds like you're using good stuff, I wish ya success

    Yeh, we still have to be 18 y.o. to purchase spray paint from most outlets.

    Personally, I use Australia Export paint. $2.50 a can, good coverage, limited colours though.

    I did have a supplier of discount Rustoleum Painter's Touch primer, but unfortunately, that source has dried up. If it wasn't so expensive, I'd use it all the time.

    Cheers,

    I feel your pain, for sure I hope that changes for you guys, I really enjoy seeing the painjobs.



    Ok, here's the newest variation on the N7 Stampede. Changed it up a little to be unique for the charity auction it's going to be a part of. Hope you guys like it and please check out the site if you get a chance, it's a very good cause!

    Thanks for the reply, I guess "standard stuff" might not be the same for you as it is for us. As far as restriction go, you need to be 18+ to buy spray packs because of all the punk ass kids who can't help but scrawl their douchebag names on everyone else's shtuff. So most shops keep it all under lock & key, the same kids love to shoplift. Anyway, not a problem for me, I'm plenty old. =]

    Getting the same brands is the issue, and specialty stuff. I believe most common cheap stuff is Enamel, I could be wrong, I haven't gone to investigate yet, was hanging for your reply so I don't waste too much money testing things & ruining blasters.

    In a pic above I can see Rustoleum Fabric & Vinyl, is that what you're using a black primer? This stuff: http://www.rustoleum.com/CBGProduct.asp?pid=370 Seems a bit strange, but if it works then why not? The Technical Data Sheet says that it's Resin Type is Vinyl/Acrylic, I guess that vinyl makes it a bit softer, conformable & less prone to cracking, sound plausible?

    I found this Rustoleum Plastic Primer, but it only comes in white so that can't be it. http://www.rustoleum.com/CBGProduct.asp?pid=379

    They also have some plastic specific colors but not many options so I doubt you're using them. http://www.rustoleum.com/CBGProduct.asp?pid=373

    So is it Enamels or Acrylics for the colored top coats? Feel free to snap a few shots of your cans if that's easier & we can figure out the rest. Sorry to be a bother, it just seems that whatever you're doing you've got it sussed, so why re-invent the wheel eh?

    Cray,

    You should check out this thread for some fairly detailed testing on different paint types/brands available in Oz.

    http://www.oznerf.com/t2810-paint-brands-on-nerf-guns?highlight=paint+brands

    If you're looking to buy acrylic rattle cans, try here:

    http://www.thebutchershop.com.au/store_info/

    I've purchased from them before, but living in Qld, the postage is a killer for dangerous goods. They have an online store, but shops in Northbridge and Fremantle, which would be a bonus for yourself.

    On-topic - nice work as always JohnsonArms!!

    Cheers,

    Thanks, I've read through that thread but there seems to be lots of confusing information. Like, waiting weeks for paint to dry? Sounds like using the wrong stuff for the job, surely?

    Sorry to take things off topic a bit, but I figured the intro has been well & truly covered and it made sense to keep specific Q's for Mr JohnsonArms in one place, hope that's OK with everyone.

    Sorry to take things off topic a bit, but I figured the intro has been well & truly covered and it made sense to keep specific Q's for Mr JohnsonArms in one place, hope that's OK with everyone.

    Might have been the wording! The entire process takes about 2 weeks to complete, but that's about 4-5 coats of paint and sealer as well as all the brush painting I do. Two weeks would be a but much

    Sorry for any delays in responding, I've been really swamped with projects so email and web site posting has had to be put off a bit. Lots of cool stuff coming though!

    Hey Folks!


    I've been staying really busy here lately so I apologize for the slowdown in photos One of my current projects is a nerf custom using parts from a bunch of guns. I was inspired by another person's gun on RPF as well as the TV show Tera Nova. They made some really cool guns from mostly nerf parts as I'm sure most of you will know by now

    I also finished up on a steampunk barrelbreak and a Gears of War themed Lasertag LTX pistol. I think they came out pretty successful, hope you enjoy. I'll also add some randon photos of the other stuff I've been busy with



    The Beast Rifle

    That Beast Rifle looks VERY COOL. It would make a great movie prop for sci-fi OR war movie type scenarios. Great work. Keep it up man.

    Thank you! Someone claimed it and dictated the color scheme as an arctic style. I added the first coat of white and then I'll move on to the other colors once it's dry


    More photos from the past few days. Hope you all are doing well


    All done on the LTX

    Here's a mixup of some new stuff I'm working on, I've been neglecting the photo editing part of all this, but I should be able to take a breath after I ship the last few weeks worth of stuff, haha

    and what's finally done, but took forever. They look pretty cool now that they're all complete and lined up on the rack. I like to pretend I'm in the armory of the Normandy..before it blew up

    and here's a few extras I'm doing up, the praxis is non-functioning, but it will have LED lighting - I'm thinking blue will be the final interior color or possibly a few different colors

    Thanks for taking the time to read through all that I hope you'll like the lastest gray and red versions. I added some new elements to them because I had the time to do so, finally


    Here's a few photos from the past few days. My kidney stone is still being a problem so I've been unable to do as much as I'm use to. I hope to have that fixed soon

    Hey guys, sorry to be gone for a bit, but I figured I was posting to too many places and they were just becoming redundant. Definitely not the point
