Sure. I have 4 colors on this rifle, tan, od green, brown, and black. These are the Krylon Fusion camo colors which are flat finishes. First, rub the stock down with fine steel wool to scuff the finish lightly. Second, rub the stock down with denatured alcohol. Start with the lightest color, which was tan for me, and lay down a base coat over the entire stock. Allow this coat, and the following coats, to at least dry to the touch before moving on. Next, take a small sea sponge and either apply the green directly to the sponge or spray some into a container and dip it. Pat the sponge on the stock to apply as light or heavy as you desire. Use a new sponge and apply brown and lastly, the black. The sponges can be purchased at Walmart in the arts and craft section. You can go back and repeat the color applications until it fits your taste and touch up work can be performed the same way. It is easy and pretty much impossible to screw up. I applied it to my hunting cart too. I forgot to add that any hardware will need to be removed or taped off before painting. I taped my recoil pad and removed the sling swivels.
