3D Splashes

Does anyone know how they do the 3D splashes? I am just curious what the process is to get the gloss splash on the dust finish and then give it a color.

If you are thinking of getting one on a marq, it's not the best idea.

All bob long markers are kind of flaky with tolerances, and getting a plain ano can cause issues, but there is an ever greater chance of issues occurring with a 3-d splash since it has to be dipped in acid twice.

Too late. Already ordered a new VIS. Hopefully since it is new any issues will be covered by warranty. Didn't have any issues with tolerances on my solid color VCOM.

Oh, just the engine? If that's the case, it should be fine. I assumed you were doing the entire gun.

I guess we all know what happens when we assume haha

No...it is the entire gun. A Bob Long VIS with both the VIS and the VCOM engines.

Ok, are you getting this ano from factory or is it an aftermarket ano?

Oh so then it's perfectly fine. I thought you had a Vic and you were getting it re-annoed

Nope...was just curious how they did it since I ordered one. Figured I would be fine since it is the first anno on the gun and has a factory warranty. thanks

I have a lifegame splash VIS that has 4 or 5 colors in it ... no issues with tolerances. In fact I haven't seen any issues with tolerances in any of the various anos I have seen come through on the myriad of Bob Long Markers I own.

You'll be fine. Excellent choice with the VIS. I love mine.

As for how they do the 3d ano, I have some theories, but I may be complicating it a bit and I do not know for sure.

Did I miss seeing pictures of that somewhere or is that your camo VIS?

Nope, not the Camo VIS ...
This one:


That is a factory Ano from BLAST. And the only one they have done in that color scheme that I know of.

Awesome. That is all gloss, right? Wonder if they could do that with a matte base fade.

I am gonna put an Exalt grip on my reg as well, but I need to find a black one with white writing. I emailed Exalt yesterday, but have not heard back. None of the online stores give a detailed enough description for me to tell if it is the black/white or the black/grey.

Mine looks like this...pics borrowed from ebay auction:
