Well ever since I got my Grills I've been interested in painting them. I got bored the other day so I thought I'd finally paint them, and while I was at it, make a bit of a guide for those who are considering customising their own mask. I went to my local skateshop since it was the only place open on Sunday that sold paint and got myself some 'Acid Green' Montana spraypaint, for £4.20 or so. I know you're meant to use 'Krylon Fusion' on masks, but that's American, hard to get a hold of here, expensive and well, I'm impatient lol. Here's the paint I got: Then I took out the lens, foam and strap from my Grills, and the little metal 'V-Force' logos on the sides (just bend back the tabs on the inside and it comes right off, then you can put them back later after painting). After that, I used black insulation tape to go around the seams between hard plastic and rubber on the mask, as this made a better seal and was easy to cut with a stanley knife. Then I just used regular masking tape to cover up the rest of the rubbery parts. This stage probably was the most time consuming, cos it was hard to cut the insulation tape right. I ended up with this: After taping it up, it was time to start paintin'. I took some sandpaper and gave it a light sanding down first, to give the paint something to grip onto and so I could get a better idea of how thick the paint was (ie, when to stop adding more coats lol). I should have used some sort of Primer here, but I didn't have any in my garage and being an impatient bastard I just started layering on the Colour I picked. I put it on in thin coats, probably about 10 in total. Leaving it to dry for about 15-20mins in between coats. I ended up with this: After that was done, I used some clear laquer to seal it and try to prevent chipping (that's probably inevitable, only time will tell). I put on a couple of light coats, again letting it dry for about 20mins in between each time. So with all this done, it was time to peel off all the tape. I wasn't happy with a lot of it. But oh well, it was a learning experience if nothing else. I learned that next time I do something like this, to put masking tape on the INSIDE as well as the outside lol. And to get some sort of tape that wont leave a sticky residue (fucking insulation tape -_-). Anyway here's the finished product, my Acid Grills: Yeah I know the colour may not be to everyones tastes (Ed lol ) but I think it looks sweet, and as I said, I learned a lot from it for the next time I paint a mask. Feedback?
