Re: How To Camouflage Paint Your Rifle By Greg Ballard

I really like the paintjob you did with the instructions. I was wanting to know if you thought this would work equally well on a shotgun? I originally wanted my shotgun to be solid black, which is nice looking, but have seen multiple camouflage guns and it just flat out looks nice.

Thanks, and keep up the good work.

Yes, it works just as well in a shotgun or a bolt gun also.

I know in the directions he gave if you need to touch it up it is easy. Is there anything special you need to do before hand if you do touch it up? Outside of getting the oil off the spot specifically.

I am the person who wrote this article so by He you are referring to I

If you end up with a chip or a scratch and you want to repair it, you will want to use a fine grit sandpaper and smooth the edges around the chip or scratch down so that there is an easy transition from the good paint into the chip. This is known as feathering the edges. You will want to clean the area using a bit of lacquer thinner to remove sanding dust and any oils and then let this dry. Mask off the area around the chip and then re-apply the base color to the area and let this dry for 20 minutes and then you can go back over it with the accent splatters and it will look great. This type of pattern here can be touched up easily and it will be very difficult to ever perceive a repair was made.
