I've always thought that bakelite magazines looked really cool. I wanted one in 7.62x39, but I refuse to pay $70 per mag. So, I made my own.
Johnny 5.56: "Fake-lite" Faux Bakelite 7.62x39 magazine

we need more cow bell!.....er i mean orange!
If you notice bakelite mags contain more than one color in them. You might try spraying red and orange paint simultaneously in a random pattern to create that dual color effect. Or you could spray a base color and let it dry then overlay it with a highlight color followed by rolling crumpeled tin foil over it to create that two tone effect that is common on these mags. Otherwise I think you are onto something here. Good job.
