And if does chip ... you can repaint it. This mask will not take the entire can of paint. You could probably paint over a dozen masks with one can. If it does chip, just touch it up. I got gogged this weekend and the part that got hit did not chip. Krylon fusion does work pretty well.
well no, if I usually take one to the face, it's not from point blank range. *knock on wood*, I can't remember the last time I got dome rocked from point blank range. I dunno, I'm not knocking the idea one bit, and besides if mine did chip a little, it might actually have that cool "worn out" look to it.

capitan howdy, u can touch up the area between the rubber and the plastic with a screw driver or something. It's in the first post. It makes it a little cleaner looking

The silver has a different finish... I tried it on some plastic and it looks more like textured even though it's silver hammered finish krylon fusion for plastic.

yes. It's not really physically modding a mask. It's just adding paint. If adding paint was illegal .. then getting hit in the face with a paintball would be a penalty :-P

(yeh I know .. bad joke)

alright, so I did my mask with the white gloss krylon fusion plastic. I have a few chips here and there but nothing serious. I added the clear coat by krylon called "make it last!" I am hoping this will weather the storms. My question is how the hell did you get the green tape to stick???? Mine wouldn't stick at all. I had to use electrical tape lol.

Okay so I painted mine Metallic silver with the steps you told me, but I got a little too close to it on a spot and the paint dripped a little, nothing major but I guess it's kind of a pet peeve for the mask being perfect.

I want to sand it down and re-tape it off and paint it again but I don't wanna sand down the plastic under the paint...Any help?

BTW I clear-coated it already as well. I figured I wouldn't mind the flaw, but I do...lol

I'll have pics up on here soon

EDIT: And the tape didn't stick for me either and that was on a brand new mask. I ended up using the wide style Clear scotch tape and that still didn't stick as well as I thought it would.

So tell me what you think. I am in the process of painting my grillz and I think the are going to look good.


Before... Just done with a silver sharpie.



All clean and taped up...




All done, just waiting for the paint to dry so I can remove the tape.
