Default how to make it look like your guns are shooting

i have a fairly simple idea but any help would be appreciated
i use little blue plastic needles, meant to help floss with braces and then i cut them and glue them on
they are a transparent blue and i think they look great
also this is my first post so any help on how to post the pictures would be nice

Welcome to the forums! That does sound interesting.

To post pictures you need to upload them to a hosting web site like Imageshack or Photobucket. They will give you a link that you can paste into posts here.

Here is a good guide FT created a while back:

This is certainly a great idea, and looks awesome in the picture! But maybe a bit more light would do next time, as it is a bit dark.

that looks really good, what are the needles marketed as?

i have painted them so they look like there is a light source coming from there guns, but i want to get some of these, they will look amassing on the FW guns (i have small enough bits i shouldnt have to worry so much about drilling through the hands, and anyway i have lots of extra guns)

I would try shopping at Wallgreens or boots if you are in the UK.
Once again thanks to all of you for the help

Maybe with a bit more light for your pictures, because, like that, it seems "all blacks" to me.. and can't see details...
