Re: Painting a stock-input needed

I followed the steps outlined in this article. How To Camouflage Paint Your Rifle By Greg Ballard
put
I used a foam brush to put the stripes on after i layed the base dark tan. Then i put the green stripes at random spots, and finally i used lighter tan on one side of the dark black to break up the outline even more and kinda looks like tree branches with sun shining on one side or moss. I might do something different next time...if you don't like it, it takes about 5 minutes and some steel wool to erase your mistakes. Just play around with it until your happy.

Just clean it and krylon. Pretty simple. Just touch up as needed.

New scope on the .338 and new barrel on the .308 AR, they are about to be colored in.

Start with light color and graduate to darkest. Mechanics drawer liner works well to give it the snake skin look. One side 's better than the other.
