Go to the second link and bring up electric colors. I think that would be the ticket. O sherbert. Looks like UT orange.

My opinion and its purely that. Treat it as a gun. They arent toys regardless what color they are. Its a wise idea to check your local laws first some commie locations do have laws regarding colors. But i think they pertain to actual toy guns though.

Found a section in Oklahoma law regarding actual toy guns. Statute says felons can not possess an "altered toy pistol" which means a toy pistol that is modified to resemble a real weapon. So, painting a toy pistol's orange parts black would be a problem (for a felon), but painting a real gun orange should not be. Laws can be a pretty strange reading experience!

That's what I was thinking, too.

Sit her down, look her in the eye, hold her hands tenderly and say gently, "honey, WTF?"

Huh... well there are kits out there for digital or other pattern, if she's dead set on it, there are ways to do so tastefully.
