I’m looking to see if any of you have any cerekoted rifles where the colour scheme fades from one colour to another. Just looking for some idea’s. Not sure what it’s called. Post pictures of your rifles

Not to sound like a smart aleck but does it change back to the original color over time and /or does it seem to be associated with temperature changes sort or like a chameleon?

Maybe I should have asked, is this an issue you have with a stock you have that has been cerekoted or is that the effect you are looking for?

    Yeah, I think the OP was looking for anyone who purposefully had their Cerakote done this way...fading from one color to another.

    I believe this is generally called an ombre effect in graphic arts.

    Cheers

    Yah I’m looking for ideas from others who’ve had it done to there rifles. I’ve seen it a time or two but good luck trying to find it lol, so I figured I’d ask.

    I had a barrel like that. I don't know how it was done but it was a sky blue color with a subtle scarlet "tint" over it. It was pretty neat imo

    This may sound kind of naive but what about going to a body shop (car) that does competent work and see what they could do. I do remember a shooter or two at the Camp Perry National High Power Matches that had some interesting stocks painted in kind of candy apple red that would fade/blend into orange then yellow. One of the guys who had the stock like that said he had it done at a shop where the painter had some of his work win awards at car shows.

    Maybe have some flames painted on it too like the car the 'Pharoes' drove in American Graffiti.

    As others mentioned, not clear on the specific effect to which you're referring, but...
    This is an AR I just did for a customer last week. The areas surrounding the stencils were airbrushed- and though these are "hard edged" against a stencil, you can certainly transition colors the same way without stencils. So no idea if I actually answered your question, but I use my airbrush more than the HVLP gun for better control of details when they're needed as above.

    I've somehow lost all my computer savvy skills in my 40's, and can't figure out how to save a picture on instagram onto my computer, so i'm sending a link, at least I can figure that part out.



    There's a link to a stock I did for Lane Precision Rifles where I did Multicam on the forend, and Multicam black on the buttstock, and faded the transition in the middle. I think it was cool, it's the first thing I though of when I saw your question.

    It seems most are confused, I apologize as I’m not sure what it’s called and can’t find a good example of it. Im looking at doing a colour fade or transition say from white at the tip of chassis or even barrel and gradually fade it into a different colour moving towards the rear.

    Something like this

    Not necessarily these colours, I’m just looking for idea’s on this particular style of finish on a gun

    As someone else suggested, I'd find auto body/paint shops in your location and talk to them about what you want. I think that's your most efficient option.
