Easy to paint pods!!

I have found this Krylon Fusion paint for plastic to be very strong and it comes in some good camo colors.
The colors are satin finish and give a slight glare, so I hit the finished painted pods with the flat clear finish and it really cuts the glare.
Clean the pods well (I use Windex) to get the oil off the pods before you paint them.


The designs I make are from sponges. Get them cheap at craft stores. The smaller ones you see are about the size of golf balls.
Spray some paint in a shallow dish then quickly dip the sponge in the paint. Roll the sponge gently over the surface to create a pattern.


Finished product. Simple, just takes time.
Let the paint dry between coats and before you sponge on patterns.
Let everything dry before you hit it with flat clear coat finish.

I like it! Of course, I'd like to think most MCBers don't use pods that much... but painting those cheap smoke 10 round tube would be great.

Look really good! I have never made the switch to 10 rounders, I'm not that skilled yet I like the sponge pattern as well. Just make sure you don't drop it, and if you do, don't expect to find it

What makes you think I have skills? I use 10 round tubes to cover up my lack of skill. Also, one time I had the green caps and I had to reload really quick, and I ended up losing the caps in the bushes when I moved to new cover.

Very nice Jason. I have used the same paint on my pods for a complete "murdered out" look. So far they have taken abuse, but have withstood very well.
