So I decided today, a week before Faery Fest, that I wanted a prop for my Steampunk Earth Faery.
The whole gun will be made entirely of a toy gun, cardboard tube, hot glue, a chain, metal gear charms, and foam.
So far, I've hot glued the cardboard tube to the toy gun (bought from the dollar store). The 3D designs are done using hot glue and I've painted half of the gun in Cashmere Tan paint. I still have the other side to paint, along with a few coats on the plastic parts to hide the silver.
I will add a light wash of gold paint over top for a little added shine so it looks like the gun has some rust to it from aging. The 3D designs will have gold paint on them so that they'll stand out. Once all the painting is done I'll seal with Mod Podge.
The Metal charms I'll hot glue on and will also hot glue the chain on. On the other end of the chain I'll have a lobster claw clip so that I can attach the chain to a hoop that will be under my waist cincher.
