How to Make Paint Bombs
Eggs filled with paint. Make a tiny hole either end of the egg, about the size of a syringe (no needle). Get the egg fluid/yolk out without leaving DNA traces on the egg. You can use the syringe or air pressure. After you have got the disgusting egg mess out by any safe means possible, let it dry and seal the bottom of the egg with strong tape (no DNA traces!). We like to use a parchment parcel tape because the paint bonds with the tape before drying, which helps destroy any forensics on the tape and the parchment doesn’t survive the action as well as the plastic-type tape. Fill the egg with paint via the syringe, being careful about all the paint traces, i.e. don’t get paint everywhere. Let it dry and cover the top hole with tape. We find it good to place all the eggs in an egg box.
Be careful about the egg box because sometimes they are marked with a QR/barcode that shows where the eggs/egg box is manufactured and also it’s point of sale. Be careful about where you got the paint, tape, eggs from etc. Police forensics can trace different types of paint, tape and eggs too. Keep a clean preparation space, clothes and no unexposed skin or hair. It’s a good preparation practice for further illegalist work.
With the eggs -paint-bombs- you can hit up targets quickly and almost silently (compared with smashing the windows), and gives you a good practice for
using stones and molotovs in actions. Learn how to throw if you can’t do it very well! The paint will splash back if you are too close to the target. Make sure the paint won’t come out during flight. The eggs can be transported inside the box and used in night actions, demos etc. Just don’t smash them on yourselves or in your bag accidentally and never throw anything from the back of a crowd, only from the front before disappearing into the mob!
It’s possible to make a lot of these and mass paint-bomb targets with high coverage in places under quite intense surveillance due to the speed of use and lack of noise. Using the paint-bombs newer comrades and those a ‘little out of shape’ can gain experience and learn from the techniques, checks and practices used in an active setting.
Serve up the eggs as needed to banks, corporations, government facilities, advertising, technocrats, animal abusers, fascists, etc.
Good luck, and take care of each other!
