Re: New guy here...

And hopefully I'm not clogging this thread up too much, but I want to show you guys the sort of process I went through to get these finishes. I used a combination of long grasses, pine needles, leaves, and burlap sack (awesome stuff!) to get these patterns. Oh, and one last thing, a little bit of green goes a damned long way as seen by the AR.











Last, but not least: NEVER forget to wear a mask or goggles. That Krylon is awesome, but nasty **** nonetheless, so protect yourselves:

Re: New guy here...

Hey man, I appreciate it a bunch... Any chance you've found a thread on here dedicated solely to paint jobs? I've been doing some looking, but can't come up with anything concrete.

If anyone does know, please let me know so I can post these pics there and get a wider audience so I'll have more thoughts and reviews on what I did.

Thanks.
