Re: Finally, Finally I have it ready to shoot

The base color is the lightest color (tan), paint the entire stock that color. Then tape and paint the other two colors (one at a time)

    May I ask why? I want the color present in the greatest amount to be tan? So dont I want to use it last?

    Generally speaking, when painting anything, you start with the light colors and progress to the darker colors. Part of the reason being that darker colors will cover the lighter colors more easily. Also, the base color (lightest color) does not have to be the predominant color. But painting the entire stock you don't have to tape for it at all. All you have to do is tape the final two colors.

    Make sense?

    OK here is what I ended up with, had a few issues in my method. I tried male stencils at first but ended up with fuzzy edges. So I got out the exact o knife and some small paper plates. Cut random shapes and used the air brush to feather it all together. I think it took me about an hour, the paint is Brownells Alumihide II.
