Do it yourself duracoating

I have an old pistol that shoots like a dream but it's got a lot of superficial wear. I've looked into having it reblued, but the more I think about it, I'd like to have it not look like every other model out there, which brings me to duracoating. It's like to give it a bi-tone look with maybe black and desert beige going on.

I can't find anyone in my immediate area who does this, but there are DIY kits available. I live in an apartment, so I don't have a yard or a garage to do this. How messy is it and is there any danger from fumes? Further, how much risk am I running of messing up my gun forever? That is to say, is it possible to simply remove the "paint" and start over?

I just don't want to get into something over my head here.
