All of the wear was done with some dry brushing and washes. I almost kept it clean because I liked the way it looked, but there was an unexpected problem when some of the paint came off due to me trying something dumb haha.
This is what it looked like before I grimed it up. Also thanks for the comments!
Thank you so much for putting a trigger on your ray gun. It drives me up the wall when people take say... a candlestick and glue it to a broom handle then call it a ray gun. Love the folks at Brassgoggles, but a number of them are notorious for doing that.
