I wanted to invite everyone to add me on Instagram, I think you'd enjoy seeing all the photos that don't make it on Deviant Art. If you're interested, I'm listed under Johnsonarmsprops or instagram.com/johnsonarmsprops
See you all there!
Thought it time for a re-write of all this after a year!
Thank you for visiting my page, I appreciate your interest in what I do. What do I do exactly? I'm not sure yet to be honest...but for the time being, I am a maker of custom props and painter of replicas. I work primarily in paint so what you see in the photos is all paint. There are a few times where this is not the case, but I generally point this out. I am seeing a bit of a move towards incorporating painted and non-painted parts to make a final product where you can't see where the real ends and the trickery begins, hehe.
I do work a lot with Nerf guns and those from similar brands. They're a blast and until I can afford the CNC machines, Ol' Brian has to work with what he can get his hands on. I do keep some functional when I don't have to muck around with the guts. Others are purely fantasy guns that look great with that insanely expensive HALO costume you just commissioned, heh. I also have a love for all things Steampunk and although my work would not show up at the definitive definition as such, I do feel they complement they style nicely and I'll strive to get better at making them.
So please have a look through my past year of playing Santa's helper. I hope you'll find something you enjoy and please feel free to contact me if you have something you need built to order. "If you've got the money, honey, I've got the time!" lol
All the best and thank you for you comments, support and friendship. You guys make it all worth while
