Has anyone tried to "paint" their guns with sharpie markers? I do that a lot and I really like to use the metallic siver color marker. Does anyone else do this?

My retard friend tried that and it looks like crap on his, but that's 'cause he uses crappy little dollar store guns that it smears off of.

I could imagine doing small details on a gun but the whole thing? That would seem sort of tedious.

My brother painted his barrels with them once, it was on the sm3k but it fell apart so he never really held it and used it.

I never was able to get an even look. The borders between strokes always showed VERY clearly for me. Any if I tried to go over an area often the second coat would sort of re-wet the first coat and just get messy.

Wow. I am working on my AT2K right now with a black sharpie and I like how it is working out. The coat is a little uneven looking from close up (say like, a foot or less), but it looks very nice from a little bit farther away.

Edit: Okay I just finished it and it looks great here's a picture. It's a little small so you can click on it if you want.

I like how it looks, but it smells like sharpie if you get too close and the feel is a little weird. However, it worked well, but I would still use paint because it is easier and you doesn't take as long.

See, wouldn't the marker smear onto your hand as you hold it? I'd only use a sharpie for art and detail, maybe for getting around certain parts that spray paint couldn't do. But deffinatly for some gun art.

Like I said, if you let the marker dry for a couple hours it dosent smear at all. I did this to my nf and it worked great, but if you can use paint thats probably better. I only did this because I dont have acess to any paint and wanted a sliver nf.

S'awful sticky, though. Dried Sharpie tends to be kinda tacky and it will wear off on your hands.
