Stock Painting Help

I would like to do some different colored webbing on my stock. I have a Stockade stock that I switched from a right to left hand. I'm going with a duracoat flat black for the base coat but I wanted to throw some webbing over it for texture. I was thinking of just lowering down the pressure on my airbrush till it just comes out as a weak stream but I'm worried that the dura coat will just flatten out and I wont get that texture. Can anyone shed some light on the subject and maybe suggest some products?

    I have seen it done using air hose and a drizzle of paint . but in the old days we would just turn down air pressure on our paint guns(not airbrush) should work, try it on test area first to see effects

    Ofdscooby,

    Iíve tried a lot of different approaches to achieve texture and webbing, and with some types of paint it just wonít work very well. I have never sprayed Duracoat, I use Cerecoat and KG Gunkote and I would think they are similar in solids or body you might say and to make a web with them would be a challenge. If you turn your air down and volume up it will give you specks like Manners uses for texture. You will have a hard time, as you already realized making the specks pronounced enough to make much of a difference. I use acrylic urethanes and have techniques that make the patterns and textures repeatable. Hereís a picture of what you could do with urethanes.


    Good Luck with your project.

    +1 on the Krylon Webbing paint---works very well for a product in a can. You can get it in multiple places including Amazon and I think TCP global.
