So i have a slg with a gold trigger and backcap, i got one gold 90 macro fitting thats plated so no problem but i tried painting the screw heads on the grip, screw for the feedneck, on/off asa knob, and a 90 macro to see how it'd be

well they all turned out pretty bad, when i put pressure on the parts the paint doesnt flake off it like globs off, i dont know what i did wrong, so ill tell u what i did

- I sanded all the parts and cleaned them then painted about 5 coats over them, the paint i used was a small Testor container, oil based

do i need some clear coat over it? any help is appreciated, if pics are wanted i can do that

thnx a bunch

The Testor stuff isn't meant to take the abuse stuff like a paintball gun takes. It's meant for model cars and such. Get some better quality paint and you'll see a difference.

You put a few coats on and the top coat might fine dry but the undercoats aren't .

The paint is still green.

Certainly take a look at other links in the forums. Duracoat and Krylon camo are the popular brands right now for firearms paint. Krylon you can find at your local hardware store which comes in aerosol cans which is cheap too.

Duracoat which is the much more expensive option which is a two part paint system and can be found on the web. Much more durable than krylon but, expensive and is much more labor intensive. Do, your research. Lots of info on the web. Like the previous posters testors paint is def not for firearms. Also, if which ever way you plan on painting take your time and do things right the first time.

you used OIL based paints.

stay away from latex paints, they aren't tough either. using the so-called water based ENAMELS will be fine. the funny thing is you dont really want to thin them using water, they make a special mix for it.

one of the brand i use for detail work is ACRYL. its a testors made acrylic enamel paint. works wonders on models and easy to use with an air brush.
