Unique and hand painted in steampunk, video game styles and one off designs made for display, cosplay or Nerf War.
I started repainting Nerf guns 6 years ago, with Steampunk style pistols and shotguns as my first love. I still do them but expanded to try my hand at videogame styles. These are the type of collectibles I would have wanted to buy, but no one was making them so I had to do it. Lots of people liked them to so here I am!
Below is a list of all my currently available Nerf guns. They link to my Etsy page and you buy them through there.
Serious bit. Painted Nerf guns look far more "real" than normal shop bought Nerf guns. They may be brightly coloured but the shape can still scare people. This can make other people see them as real and possibly call the police. Please don't go waving it around. Police may be called, you could be arrested and you'd be responsible for ruining the fun for everyone. And do you want to be the one who did that? Course you don't. You're not that person. You're the other person. The cool one. And that's why you bought this in the first place.
Collecting Nerf guns should be fun.
Buggering about is only going to ruin the fun for everyone.
And thanks to the brilliant @theivyblack for modelling my Nerfs.
I also have a YouTube channel. I've covered most of the guns that I've painted, showing them off and giving tutorials on how I created their looks.

A Nerf Retaliator becomes a Torgue Rifle from the Borderlands games. Comes with a high capacity magazine and a targeting light is under the barrel.A 3D blaster repainted to look like a 2D cartoon.
The Union Jack painted on a Nerf. A great design and a shameless cash in on current affairs. This took ages and looks fantastic. I don't know if I'll ever spend so much time making one again.
This Nerf design was originally bright yellow. Repainted in black and white gives it a futuristic look. Perfect for anyone from a super secret government organisation.
The classic Nerf Maverick becomes a Borderlands inspired, cel shaded blaster. Looks like a cartoon from any angle.
This is the another Nerf design repainted in the cel shaded style, turning a 2D design into a 3D object. A truly unique look.
Big Magnus Nerf painted in the style of the American flag. Red and white stripes with a big white star on the front of each side. Inspired from Counter Strike : Global Offensive and Far Cry 5.
The classic Nerf Maverick repainted as an antique revolver; steel rear body with a brass front holding a steel cylinder. The brass charging handle tops off this war worn handgun.
