Well God and a few million years of evolution did his camouflage job and he is in the shade... .

Re: Painting a stock-input needed



I did this with just Krylon. Started with the brown, then did black, olive green stripes to break it up even more, then light light tan as highlights on the "branches" which would work nicely for the oaks. This was my first job, and i just followed the steps highlighted on the forums here. it's like "how to paint a rifle stock" or something. Like i said, far from pro, but effective none the less. just have fun with it. best thing about Krylon, you can re-do it.

Re: Painting a stock-input needed

I have done a couple of guns but dont have pics taken yet. Good advice already I would add that the last color you lay down will be the dominant color. This is important if you use more than two colors because as you use the stencils all you are seeing is the last color you apply.
