UnTaping
Pull the tape off by tugging it against itself. This will help 'cut' the paint and reduce the chances of paint peeling off with the tape.


what do you mean by tugging it against itself? I am scurrently tigerstriping my gun becase we arent playing on sunday :rolleyes:

here is what it looks like now, for now im just going to do a 2 tone black/green paintjob. Im also doing my flatline but i havent gotten it completely black yet, it being round and all takes longer.

So i finished the gun but the flatline isnt done yet. The gun was already painted so i did a kind of reverse color on the cyclone feed, i just taped off what i wanted to keep and then painted the rest black (mainly becasue i forgot about it then decided i wanted to do something to it). So here are some pictures, i like it but i think it might be too green, i probablly should have outlined the stripes in brown or tan but im happy with results overall.

Looks good.

If you want to tone it down, apply a fine layer of black paint. Not up close, but from a distance. The idea is to mist it w/ a light layer of black to darken it.

Good job dislexiclawyer!

I like the work you did on the cyclone to try and make it match the gun's camo scheme.

yeah i tried to do a reverse of what is on the gun but the stripes arent the right color becasue i just covered up what was already there, i might redo it later this week. I would say over all it was pretty good for my first time.

:P Thanks Wookie for the info! I painted my 98C this past Monday. Was out in my garage and when I started painting it was 60 degrees, by the time I was done 5 hours later it was down to 35. Gotta love NW PA weather this time of year. The paint didn't seem to set right and it got a little sloppy, but I'm still happy with the results. Some of the green barrel paint peeled off when I unmasked as you can see in the pic. Base coat of black, then green, then tan. Four coats of Krylon flat clear over the top of paint. I ended up baking at low temp in the oven for an hour and it really made the paint bond to the marker. Definitely take your time throughout the entire process!
Now if the snow would just melt and temps rise some so we can get out and play.

Very nice. Is that a J&J?
Oklahoma D-Day '05 (352nd ID), '06 (352nd PJ), '07 (352nd PJ), '08 (352nd PJ), '09 (352nd PJ). It was a good run.
