Here’s a quick update on the project.. I’ve failed twice.. but I’m IMO nailing the third one.. All three attempts have been something different ie not your tyipical camo.. I’ll post up the completed rifle pic in a week or soo..
Just for reference..
Before / New:
First try.. (Failed!)…..Hahahahaaa
First let me say, I’m not doing a traditional camo pattern, everyone has one, I’m going to be doing something a little different. With said different comes with many failures before true success is achieved.. Here is one / a few of my many failures.. Hhahahahahaaa.. I’m combing a GAP with a snakeskin in a dessert colors:
Changed it from green to black
OOooooooo.. Did I mention that a GREAT thing about Duracoat is it all washes off…
That’s right!.. just incase you didn’t know that little fact, you actually have 45 minutes after its painted to decide if your going to keep it.. If you decide you don't like it then you simply soak a rag in the reducer and wipe it off the gun.. But if you wait longer than 45 minuets your SOL.. Hence the scope.. Hahahahahaa… I’ll need prep it unlike the rifle for round II..
Hey Bench.. You know what they say!... You cant make a omelet without breaking some eggs.. Hahahahaa…
I’ve done so much painting lately it’s just another thing to have fun with and I don't ever think about the price.. I would just shit myself at that point.. OMG WTF am I doing.. hahahaaa.. No we just don't go there..
Have a great one Sir.. and please check back in a week or so for the completed rifle.. All of the painful pics are complete at this point.. lets hope at least..

Hope it works out!
Nice rifle anyway! </div></div>
Hey thanks Sir.. I kind of paint all my stuff like this, its always an exciting process for me and I'm usually very happy with the end results..
Speaking of the end results, I very, very happy with it.. What you do think.. I call it Zombie Camo..

Do you need an apprentice?? MAN.. I mean you are the MAN... Thanks, thanks so much for sharing, I’ve saved those pics on my hard drive.. I'll be doing that pattern again one day on something and this time I'll use yours as a reference... Thank you.. Thank you soooo much..
