    I already removed it from the base, now i need to strip the paint so I can repaint it the right way lol. What should I use? I dont want to lose any of the detail that it has.

    well it was fiarly easy...i just cut all the fingers in half and wiggled the last pin in the butt of the gun loosw than wiggled all the fingers with pins out. I only spent 60 bucks on it so i just went for it lol.


    The Holy Shotgun is the gun used in Constantine with Keanu Reeves. One of the Coolest prop movies ever.

    Ask and you shall recieve. I turned the base into a Base for all my Demon Destroying props from Constantine. Just need the Brass Knuckles (franz :love ) and I am working on the amulet.

    Looking cool. I got one a couple weeks back and plan on removing from the base soon as well. I'm tempted to just weather the piece after adding the cross detail, etc. Instead of a whole repaint. I don't want to loose a lot of the details. I agree, it is one of the coolest props around.

    Is the gun resin? If so, use Easy Off oven cleaner. Stick the parts in a plastic bag spray the cleaner inside on teh parts and some extra, seal the bag and let it sit. Not sure what kind of paint they used, but it should work and not damage the resin.

    Thanks for the reference, TFrosst.

    TimDrakeRobin: If there's any doubt, I'd suggest you try the Easy-Off technique on one of the discarded "demon hands" first, just to make sure that the paint is the only thing that's going to come off easily. :p

    No problem. Let us know how it goes for you (with pics). I'm planning on buying one of these when I get home. I think it has a lot of potential. BTW, TImDrakeRobin, where did you get the holy water "bottles"?

    EDIT: Forgot to add something. After the parts have been sitting in teh bag for a while, when you take them out, use an old tooth brush under running water and scrub the remaining paint off. DON'T FORGET TO USE GLOVES

    The details are so poorly incribed that I didn't mess with trying to remove the paint. Just re-primed over the top and went for it.

    There are some good shots of the sight cross on the DVD extras. It's pretty basic. Made mine out of sculpey.

    Not sure if it'd be worth rescribing, but definetly stripping. Who knows how much paint DC put on there.

    I'd definitely be interested to know how Tim gets on with the the oven-cleaner method. I'd never heard that one before.

    Sanding or a paint stripper like Ntiro-Mors is definitely out with this piece.

    Yea I think the detail on this piece is really great, but it is over shadowed by the amoun of paint that is on it in certain areas. I will try stripping it and I will let you know how it comes out.

    It's just a small clear christmas bulb. Craft stores carry them. Joanne's fabric had the best size.

    The Easy off didnt do anything...Just discolored it. hmmm

    I added more Easy off, i will let it sit till morning

    OK well the easy off took the paint off of the Clear Resin parts, but not the white resin... so i just used some goof off, very carefully over the area with the most paint on it...enough to see the detail again, so now I just Primed it. Tomorrow I will go and get some gold and Silver Rub N Buff to finishe it up.

    yea it is used to remove tacky residue and other things. But it can eat resin, so i would set it on and then wipe it off with a damp towel.

    Hey TimDrakeRobin, can see in progress pics?

    I just found this link. you may want to try a few of their methods. If you use to harsh a chemical, i'm worried you may destroy the engravings.

    Plus once you break the demon hands off at the wrist, the base is salvagable.
