Re: custom camo paint job

I've done a few solid paint jobs, below is the only camo paint job I've done. It was an attempt at a dual purpose summer/winter camo on a Stevens 200 in .223.

Re: custom camo paint job

The advantage of a Krylon camo paint job is if you don't like it you can just paint over it. Mine got about 8 coats before I liked it.

The colors don't seem to contrast enough, but that may just be the pics. The camo should have a moderate contrast to truly break up the outline.
