I was thinking about doing another one in a metallic red... or even a hot pink.

What colors do you like? Are you the type to match your gear up? What color is your gear/marker?

it was waay easier than i thought too, basically if u use krylon fusion, its hard to **** up because it seriously comes right off of the rubber, u dont have to scrub or anything, it rubs right off with a light touch of a flat head screwdriver, so all u have to try to do is tape it like it says in the first post, TRY to get it the best lines u can, but if not, it comes right off the rubber with ease

that sounds encouraging....I'll probably go for it once I have the time.

think the interior an exterior paint would work well to? or is the fusion stuff the best because it won't chip?

It would be interesting for a mask to be painted with the mystic prism paint.

I'm gonna paint a gun stand with the copper hammered paint.

i wouldnt try anything else since krylon fusion is the only stuff tested and proved, and since it bonds to plastic and not the rubber it makes the cleanest lines for the grill, so id stick with the krylon fusion, theres a ton o colors

I used Rustoleum Metallic for mine, then a clearcoat of Krylon. I think as long as you find a paint that specifically says it will bond to plastic, you really shouldn't have a problem...

But I'll let you guys know after Saturday whether or not mine got all chipped to hell

Something else I did after taking blue painters tape to my mask, I took a utility knife, or a sharp thin object and lightly traced the grooves in the mask. Sometimes I would tape above the grooves, then use the knife to make sure I had clean lines. It was difficult to get the tape to stick to the mask at first, but I started up near the mask clips since that area was easier, then used the tape to kind of "anchor."

I dunno if anyone else had an issue with the tape sticking to the bottom portion of your mask.

yeah, i did, but like u said after you got most of the tape down it held itself to the other pieces of tape, so it wasnt really huge deal

Haha, if I sent my mask to someone could they do it for me?
I knew if I attempted it my mask would get ruined faster than you can say Rustoleum Metallic.

another quick question: Will the krylon fusion start to come off if you clean/wipe your mask after each day of play? If so, how long would you think it would last before coming off?

givensin... I totally would. If you wanted to work something out (fee wise), I'd have no problem doing it for you in a weekend... just let me know what kind of colors we're talking about... let me know!

DaEagle, I think if you use a clearcoat/protectant, it would help and you wouldn't have to worry about it coming off. Sounds weird, but my boyfriend did his mask and he actually used a clear engine enamel protectant. It is supposedly really thick and will stand up to a lot of heat and also is pretty heavy duty.

But again... I'll report back after playing on Saturday.

i just got done painting the clips on the sides, i painted the whole thing white first, drew what design i wanted on a blank part of a sticker sheet (in this case my initials WK) and then put the sticker on once i painted it white, then i painted over the white with blue, so the WK stayed white i used krylon fusion for the white as well
