Alright Here is the gun I did and the boat I did. Hope you enjoy. Also the sources to help you do yours!
Hope you like them
What you'll need:
[list][*]1 Straw (corn husk) broom [*]Krylon Ultra Flat paint your choice of colors (2 minimum you'll be seeing the tan and olive on the rifle and boat) [*]Sandpaper to rough up surface [*]"wipe down" something to take off your sanding dust before you paint[*]Painters tape, scissors, generic supplies
Here is a picture of the broom I used.
Some of the trial passes from the templates
You will get paint on yourself.... Don't be shy about it, its going to happen. Take a lap you'll be fine.
Shows the template in the right hand side. add more or remove some if you wish to make more/less secondary color bleed through. And be aware they will clog with paint... You may need about 6-10 for a large surface.
Showing the Rust (reason for re-doing it)
You'll notice that I stuffed the action with cotton [censored] and there is a box laying on the ground in the back, Push your hardware into the box to paint the heads of the screws ect. And other small parts I sat on there to paint.
I'd say to make sure you tape everything you want to stay the "base" color. in this instance its black. So now you can spray with your Base color in my case its Tan.
So here it is with the tan base coat and you can see I re-assembled it for the "camoing" process. I put 3 light coats on. Its all personal preference on that.
Here it is after the first pass. what you do is take a corn husk broom and tape pieces together and use them as stencils, you then do a quick pass with the overlay paint (In this case its olive) make sure you practice a bunch first. This is a rifle you'll only get one shot at this.
Allow it to dry fully before you flip it, as you can see the one side is done and the other is not (notice the stock at the butt end)
A shot of the side of it before I peeled everything.
Here it is as a finished product.
