Prop Painting - Star Trek Phasers by eloquium Prop Painting - Star Trek Phasers by eloquium
This prop was used for my Nyota Uhura cosplay and was originally white/neon orange.
The following was done to get the final silver finish:
1.) Prime the gun with 2-3 layers of Rustoleum Black Gloss spray paint
2.) Cover with 2 layers of Valspar metallic spray paint
3.) Paint the tip red and the inner ridges black
4.) Cover with a gloss clear coat

It's simple and easy! This method basically works with any metal prop (:

Thank you for making this!!! :D I was looking at phasers and the good ones cost a good $50. LOVE your paint job and I'm willing to try this if it means I can use a $6 to $15 phaser on Amazon.

I know, right?! The prices of replica phasers are ridiculous!
I'm so glad I was able to help (: If you have any questions, please, don't hesitate to ask!
Good luck!
