Anyone still doing 3d homemade camo?

Any liquid nails type camo experts out there? I'm looking to try this. Some people make silicone molds and spread into molds...others apply direct and let it set up.

I haven't done it yet, but I am getting ready to try. I looked at some videos on youtube. One guy masked a camera, sprayed it with glue, and then covered it with bark and other material he had pulverized.

My plan is different. I took the bark off a dead tree. The bark is one piece about 18 inches long and several inches wide. It came from where a limb had attached to the tree so it is curved. I am going to hot glue the bark to a security case. I know trees have different bark but if I can find a tree with a similar bark, the setup should blend in.

I am also going to make 3d camo for a python lock. Someone had thrown away an artificial Christmas tree which I picked up. I cut off the branches which are flexible wire with artificial needles attached. I am going to paint a camo pattern on the branches and then wrap them around the python cable. That way I will be able to slide the cable into the lock.

The bark works, but will degrade over time. I'm buying a ceramic log so I can make a mold that I can then make dupes of with silicon or liquid nails
