what paint should i use Any spray paint will work.

should i put primer coat and clear coat on Yes, both.

do i need to bake it (i've heard you should bake the paint) No. I didn't do bake mine, and it came out perfect and hard as a rock.

when painting it do i need to cover up screw hole so paint doesn'r get in Yes. This would include the grip screws, and the right reciever nuts. What you can do though it just insert the screws into the holes backwards (the grip & body screws), so they're flush with the body(from the inside out). And paint the reciever halfes seperate just to let you know.

buy a cheep air brush a kit cost about $60.00 buy extra air can and thinner use the thinner to clean the air brush when u change colors. u can paint it with the gun together, just tape over internals that u can see or what u don't want painted. don't paint the grips it will wear off anyway, steel wool the gun use fine steel wool. clean with the paint thinner u get for air brushing paint. paint should be thinned for air brushing as for the paint, good model paint will work, if its for woods ball buy flat paint and flat over spray. i did three guns this way and they came out great. u don't have to tape over the screws just don't spray a lot of paint on them u can also use the air brush on your models

So you wanna paint your marker....

 

Materials:
1.Steel Wool (optional)
2. Primer
3. Spray Paint
4. Clear Coat
5. Dermal (optional)
6. Tape (optional)

THIS WAS Wrote and Done BY Ultimate Trooper


 

1. Field Strip your marker, take everything out so you
just have your receiver halves.

 

2. Use either a dermal or steel wool to strip off all the
paint off your marker (yes the stock tippmann black
or silver paint) be sure to get UNDER the marker and
the BACK of the marker (these are spots I almost
missed)

 

3. Wipe down your marker with a Wet Cloth to make
sure you get all the debris off of it, and to see if you
missed any spot where some paint might still be.

 

4. Tape off your internals so no paint will get on the
inside, cover all the holes and everything (this step is
optional)

 

5. Spray about 3-4 LIGHT coats of primer. Let dry. Go
back and see if you missed a spot and to be sure
both receivers are completely covered with the
primer.

 

6. Spray the spray paint on the marker, about 3-4
coats and let dry. Just like doing the primer but
colored. Make sure you got every where on the
marker. Make sure the coats are Light and smooth
on both receiver halves… let dry

 

7. Now, Spray both receivers halves with some clear
coat, make sure you cover the entire marker. Make
the coats light and quick. This should make your
marker look a little “shiny” and “smooth”… let dry

 

8. If your internals were taped off then they should
look fine on the inside. If they don’t or you didn’t tape
them off then get out your steel wool (EXTRA fine
steel wool) or dermal and polish up your internals or
just polish it up so the paint, primer or clear coat is
gone.

 

9. Put your newly painted marker together

 

10. Show off

 Pictures:



Another way to paint your maker is to use
Auto-motive paint. Get some sand paper and sand
down the paint on your tippmann (the stock
tippmann paint) just a little bit. Spray 3-4 coats of
primer on, then the paint and then the clear coat. The
process is the same just you didn’t sand off all the
stock tippmann paint. The paint will be much
“thicker” and it may be a little harder to install your
screws because of the thicker paint. Etc. Also it
tends to be “Mushy” and not as durable as the other
paintjob but it still turns out great!

 

Of coarse the paint is going to chip and scratch etc.
But just get some nail polish to touch up scratches,
cheap, your wife/girlfriend has plenty of them and
comes in a variety of colors.

 

Good Luck,

Ultimate Trooper

 

Disclaimer:
I am NOT responsible for you screwing up your
marker. These are steps and the exact way I painted
my marker. You are at fault for your own actions. PM
me for more detailed instructions..

 

Hopefully I will have pictures with a more
detailed step-by-step instructions too.

What if your doing a matte color, the clearcoat would make it shiney?

There's different type of clear coat. You can get it in matte.
