OMG!!! that's awesome! They actually look like professionally made paint grenades!
U R A GENIUS!!!!!!!!

Anyway, i was looking at these, and i wonder what would happen if didn't completely fill them with paint, and filled the rest with something fizzy. That way you could shake the grenade to build up pressure to spray the stuff out when you throw it. (although it would probably get sticky, and also would havfe to be done pretty fresh too.....).
Yeah, that's just my dumb idea.


I'll have to try making some of these though. :D

No man that could totally work....but you would need to encapsulate the "fizzy substance" in something waterproof but breakable, and snap it right before throwing (or otherwise keep it seperated from the paint until you throw it).

Good idea!

We used children's washable paint (think the stuff you used in 3rd grade art class), specifically "Crayola sidewalk washable paint." There were three 8 oz. bottles of pink, yellow and blue in a "Sidewalk paint" kit obtained at Wal-Mart. The paint was watered down approximately 6:1. This is pretty watery, but it did stick to surfaces in smaller drops. It dried to a chalky variation of the original color, but in our case left a smell of mouthwash behind, which is unmistakable.

How big was your "blast radius"? The best we could get was about 4-5', depending on what you hit, with ours.

awesome right up dude. simply amazing

might i make some suggestions/questions

could you just tie a knot instead of using a ziptie?

would regular paint like you buy to paint your house if you watered it down would that work. simple latex paint just in a gallon can instead of childrens section

for the syringe i read you have to keep it pressed against your stomach and such. heres a suggestion. take a hot needle and push it through the back end of the syringe and the plunger part. then you can put a pin through it and hold it in place freeing up some workspace for you. it will be pressurized when you return to work it but if you need a free hand its handy. just put two holes in the back of the syringe part then id add a few along the lenght of the plunger so you can have it hold in place at diffrent settings

also where did you get that killer grenade chest? freakin nice

love the wright up

well it was at least 7 1/2 feet since it hit the ceiling of the bathroom in the "bathroom bunker tests." you can get a bigger distance by shortening the length and adding more paint, say 12 oz. That kind of pressure would easily provide a 10-15 foot radius. One we discharged outside with water had enough pressure and oriented itself just right so that it shot straight up in the air like a little water pressure rocket. the grenade tube shot about 8 feet into the air.
