could you do the same thing with E Vents, not for the main rubber piece, but the black pieces on the white mask.. (looks like fangs and eye lid shaped plastic)??

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.




EDIT:






What is the "blue" on the finer edges of the mask, tape ?

The "blue" on the edges is painters tape. It's used to mask of any ares that you don't want painted, comes in different stickiness and can get it at any hardware store.

For tape not sticking to your mask: Read the directions on any paint can: Clean & dry surface. REMOVE dirt, grease, etc... any paintball residue from getting hit on the mask will not make the tape stick, clean surface with any alcohol, (denatured or isoproponol alcohol) to get rid any contaminants.

You don't have to use tape on the whole mask, just the areas closest to the area you want to paint. I have used newspaper and plastic bags to mask off larger areas that I did not want paint to get on.

I just takes time & patience to mask of the ares you want painted to have a great looking professional looking paint job.

To all the guys that have pictures of your mask painted...... GREAT JOB GUYS!

Nice job on the grillz. I'm actually in the process of painting mine now (trying to find the patience to tape off the mask). I hope to take pictures of the process and put them up when I'm finished. Hopefully it will look good.

Technically it is a penalty....

...because then you'll be out.

Even worse joke

Just finished mine... Probably could have done a bit more with the taping, but I went with a few layers of gold then a light layer of green over the top and finished with Krylon's clear coat. Really sharp. I like the way it turned out. Thanks for the idea and directions to do this!

the gold...


the green...


clearcoat...


finished product...


with the paint I used...

Picked up a NIB white Grill for pretty cheap at NEO yesterday so I decided to have some fun with it.

I went down to my local proshop today and they didn't have the gold mirror lens in but that will be the next addition to the mask. Also, the clips are going to be painted white with my initials in gold.
