As promised I'm going to show you how my husband transformed his second Nerfgun into a Steampunkgun.

This time he has chosen for a Nerf Barrel Break IX-2.

Before he dismantled the gun, he sanded of the nerf logo's from the gun. 

Then he had to dismantle the gun so he could spray-paint the different parts as a base.

Some picture's of the inside of the gun.
A good reminder when you have to assemble it again!
He spray-painted the different parts of the gun in a flat black colour.
Flat black seems to be the best base colour for steampunk projects that you want to give a silver/gold/bronze colour. 

Once the paint was dry he assembled the parts back together.
Although this isn't at all what the gun is going to look like in the end, it already looks very different compared to the original colours.  
After dry-painting the gun with dwarven bronze,  shining gold and boltgun metal, this is what it looks like now!
