Well OP, you gonna show off yours?

Mine’s not a rifle, but here it is.

That really makes me want to do tan/green on my next one. Can you see mine in the original post?

I don't think he realized yours is painted in the 2nd pic. It is difficult to see, probably especially on smaller monitors or phones. I use a 50" monitor, so it's blown up pretty big, but the difference looks pretty subtle in the pictures.

I probably should've done something differently to get more contrast – but I think this will wear nicely. Here are a couple of better close up photos.

@rj ︈ go with the lightest color first you want to use and then add in darker colors. I was going for a Kryptek style, so I bought fishnet hosiery off of Amazon. Then added the black, green and brown flecks to mine. It looks better in the sun. I’m happy with it and will probably do more in the future. A big key is to degrease before with something like brake cleaner and that there is no PERFECT camo.

I may go back and try to do a tan or lighter grey at the first layer. I just did that dark green on bottom and sprayed black through the laundry bag, but definitely overdid it on the black I think. I'll leave this one alone for a few months until it gets some use and see if it lightens up once some of the black wears off.
