    I've started making my own gun effects with a little advice from @songrobin
    LED Flame Accessory DIY Tutorial
    although I'm not using LEDs.
    I'm using spherical acrylic beads and perspex rods. To attach them to the gun I either drilled a hole in the barrel or enlarged the existing one.

    The mottled effect was done by adding a very watery coat of a different colour over the previous colour. The water's surface tension causes it to clump up.

    Here I've put the last coat on not thick enough to cover what's underneath and done it in a helical pattern.

    Making this one was way more trouble than it was worth and I almost gave up. I don't think I'll be making one for this right arm.

    I'm not happy with these ones, I think they look too much like flowers.

    If you don't mind me asking. What size risers do you have the rear Seekers on?

    How dare you ask?! How very dare you?!
    It looks like a 10cm.

    I just found ones online that are 12"x4 1/2"x5"

    Does that sound right?

    Yes, I suppose so. I made that one myself, but those dimensions are similar.

    No wait. I don't understand all those numbers. I assume 12" wide and 5" high, but what's the 4 and 1/2" about?
