Default Camo face paint pattern?

Is there anyone who can find me some pictures of people faces painted with camo? I would like to know te proper technique if possible. Any pros and cons to using this? I have had my bowstring snag my face mask to many times and throw my shot off.

Fours years in the military..

Your highlights of your face are the nose bridge , forehead , chin and ckeek bones. We were taught to paint them dark..they are the shiny parts of your face. The lighter pastel colors go on the rest of your face. .

You asked for it;



Considering when we're hunting we aren't hiding from someone who will shoot back, just paint your face to break up the outline. There is no particular pattern that works better than others.

No right or wrong way IMO. I too don't like face masks and I think the camo face makes for cooler photos.

I hate grease paint as much as I hate a mask. They used to make a powder camo which would wipe off at the end of the day. Need paint thinner to remove that grease stuff.I tried a scent-loc hood and I can't hear a thing so I usually use a pull up mask and keep it down until things heat up.>>>>>Whack!

"Light on low; dark on high" is the military standard. I'm sure the Army spent a million dollars on the research to determine the most effective.

I used to wear the net over my face with the hat and kind of got out of the habit. I don't even bother to cover my face anymore in the tree stand. Deer will sometimes look right at me, but If I don't move, it doesn't seem to bother them. If I hunted on the ground or hunted turkeys, it might be a different story, though.

I wear a mask, hate the face paint because it ends up on everything else when I sweat. I simply pull off/down the mask when I'm ready to shoot.
