  1. Thanks for your awesome video, had a general idea of how to do this but your tut helped a lot. Also had lots of fun watching, you’re pretty awesome and funny. How come you don’t upload any vids anymore?

  2. Damn… I glasses… Now I need to buy more over expensive products of a popular company.

  3. my right ear is lonely :(

  4. Just want to let you know this tutorial is great. It is what helped me get started on all the awesome guns I’ve been able to paint so far. Thanks for the tutorial.

  5. BTW, a basic gas mask will cost you 2 bucks. Just get one.

  6. Do you know what spray paint is? Or how it works.

    Think of this: little globules of plastic, suspended in a toxic gas. Now, breath the plastic and gas in. What happens?

  7. I don’t know anyone who uses a gas mask for spraypaint. Do you really think a 10 year old is gonna have one of those?

  8. Whoa…that’s pretty beast.
