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

Ryan.

What you'll need:


  • 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.


    Rifle Before


    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.

Here it is on a larger surface...


First off I'm just going to put all of the pictures on here so you guys can see it start to finish. took about a week but I only worked on it after I got off work.



Starting on the trailer.



Shot of the boat.


Gives you a good idea for how rough the trailer was.



Price was right what can I say...



Absolutely key to doing this is you need to have a good friend to help you out.



Wiping it down to paint it.



Sprayed the boat down. with the bast coat.



Base coat



About 2 days later I started the camo Job.



This is the style of broom you will need.



This is how you will want your surface, (how it will look when done) as you can see the base coat is on and its facing upwards.



This is the one section took about 10 minutes to do but I'm picky.




Once you get rolling it gets tough You can see an error right there to the right of the front seat, you can almost see a "W" in the paint. I missed the stencil and just never recovered.



Its important to paint everything

The second of the two is the one where I originally got the idea It shows the stencils he used a lot better than I did.

The rifle you did looks professionally done!! a very, very nice job!! you have some talent. I have an 870 I need to do from the 80's that had an old tree bark type camo on it that is about 40 peeled and worn. I hope it turns out even remotely as good as yours. Congrats. Keystonepaul
