Fusion is amazing stuff, i use it on my airsoft gun the thing looks real now. (i removed the orange tip and hand painted the microscopic details afterward though) Just when you use it, be smart and dont try to rush it. The cans of fusion are excellent and also have a great spray nozzle. The nozzle can send out either a verticle or horozontal fan of paint. The way you need to do it is not just try to cover one area at a time. Start in mid air, without the paint touching the cannon. Slowly move from say, the left side of your cannon to the right side, in a straight line (use the vertical setting for the nozzle) And let it get a light coat. Wait an hour or two for drying, than do another area (this is just so you dont spin the cannon and get it all icky) And so on, after all areas are done with a light coat, go over them again with another coat. Let it dry once again. Do a final coat, to cover up the spots you may have missed. It will only come out shitty if you half ass it and do a shitty job. I also reccomend you spend the extra 3 dolalrs and buy a plastic drop cloth to paint on, this way no debris touches the wet paint.

Also, as you go from side to side, make sure you go all the way past the end of what you're painting, and then turn and go the other way. That way it doesn't get darker and runny where you stopped and changed directions. I hope that that makes sense.

And I have to reccomend krylon fusion as well. I just used it today and it's amazing. And it dries fairly fast, too.
