Here you go , they came out dark but anytime I moved closer they would galre to bad from clear coat on them . As you can see in the first one I tapped 5-10 reads together at base and faned them out and just over layed to get the stripe camo . One thing I did learn was your base coat will make it lighter or darker depending on color of base .
On this one I scuffed with fine steel wool , then layed 3 coats of Adhesion promoter , then 4-6 coats of primer to cover scuff marks then 2 coats of SAND for base , from there I just layed coats in BLACK , BARK , OLIVE , KHAkI in sections to get the efect you see . then 3 coats of clear varnish . So there is plenty of coats to scratch off , I just didnt think it would hold as well on metal for some stupid reason .
The next rifle I used the same process as far as paint & prep but I used Saw grass and leafs instead of reads so it is more woodland breakup . Once again lots of pain so Im not worried about it scratching off .
