Re: Snake Skin Camo

Shawn,

How'd you do the snakeskin pattern...or is it a 'trade' secret?

Muzzle diameter is .650" (# 4 Taper Hart ). The pattern is not really a trade secret but is hard to describe. I use several different mesh fabrics to paint through after a base coat.

Re: Snake Skin Camo

Shawn,

I've been applying Duracoat to my firearms and an occassional outside job for a little over a year now. I'm curious how you get the fabrics to 'stick.' Do you just wrap it, or spray one side at a time...etc?

They used fishnet stockings on American Chopper to get the scaled effect.

Re: Snake Skin Camo

On the stock standard laq paint untra flat. The metal is done in teflon od green. I use a mesh with thick wire and small holes. I do not stick the mesh but rather stretch it over and hold in place. The trick is in the breakup of the different shades in the skin. I charge 60.00 to do a stock.
