The Nerf Maverick is a very popular gun for cosplayers and steampunk enthusiasts to repaint. It has a revolving barrel and can easily be disassembled and reassembled, making it easy to mod. Here are some of the best Nerf Maverick Steampunk repaints of all time! A coat of rustic metallic spray paint does wonders to transform the Maverick.
Dulled and weathered metallic paints work well because they make the gun look aged and vintage, as opposed to fresh and shiny clean. Minor adornments like gears or gages can really add to the Maverick to make it more steampunk.
Don't just add adornments.. mod your Maverick by removing bits and replacing the plastic barrel with real pipes!
When you disassemble your Maverick to paint it, you don't have to put it back together the same way. Remove whole pieces of the frame!
Wires, pipes, and other metal bits and bobs from your local hardware store can easily attach to the Maverick to give it a more unique result.
You can also cut apart other Nerf or water guns to salvage pieces your like. Scopes from other dart guns can be attached to the rail along the top of the Maverick. You can combine as many guns as you want into one, sweet Franken-gun.. hell, you can do it
with a second Maverick!
Try painting through lace or fabric to get a textured or patterned paint job.
Don't limit yourself to just metallic paint! There are lots of colors that compliment the steampunk palette and work well on the Maverick.
I am personally a huge fan of the black wash effect on post apocalyptic and steampunk weapons. It makes them authentically aged and grungy!
Painting part of your Maverick to look like wood also produces a great effect. Don't be afraid to throw in some color!
These guns looks great with hardware add-ons. You can't really go wrong here.
You can also add material to the grip (or wherever). Leathers, suedes, and faux leathers make great add-ons.
Hand paint some details to finish off your steampunk Maverick. This can help it match the rest of your steampunk outfit.
Steampunking a Nerf Maverick gun can be easy. This particular gun is versatile and fun to work on. Get a Nerf Maverick for yourself and steampunk it!
