View Full Version : Problem with painted rifle

03-21-2005, 00:57
I used a direct-to-plastic paint on my Armoury G36 desert camo carbine. but unfortunately, the paint smeared off, and it stains the figure's hand every time I put it. And I don't know if it's arcylic or not.

Is there a way to redo the paint, remove the paint safely without harming the gun) and use an arcylic spray paint and where can I get it?

Can you help me?

Don't know where you can get acrylic spray, but to remove paint from my weapons and plastic gear I grab my can of Gunks' Liquid Fire. Oddly enough, I discovered it's paint removing abilities about ayear ago and have been able to remove paint (with a Q-tip) several times from a weapon and paint it again. I've only ever used gun metal(Testors)paint on my weapons!

To everybody keepin it real, thanx a million!!!

You want to use a top coat or SEALER. Basically it is clear coat.

Acryl, Enamel, and Laquers are all fine to use... Just make sure you use the right thinner. Never use Acryl Thinner with Enamel Paint and Vise versa.
