New paint job

I just did this one today. This is my Bushmaster Varminter in .223. I am not done yet... I think one more layer to put in some more depth and I will be set.

Re: New paint job

Thanks fellas. I started out just dusting it with Khaki Krylon. Then, I wrapped it in Avery Killerweed (like a rafia grass) loosely and dusted it in brown. Then I wrapped it tightly in the Killerweed and dusted it in khaki and Brown, just to even it out.
Final step (if I leave it as is) I used a natural sponge and dipped it in paint sprayed into a cool whip bowl and just applied it where it looked like it needed it.
I may just do one more final pattern to give it more depth. I have to wait and see what it looks like in the field first. Any suggestions?
