Just thought i would post pics of the finished product. after 3 coats of clear flat. this project was a lot of fun and a inexpensive way to camo a rifle. i have other rifles i plan to do in the future.

It's sprayed on using thin coats, for the actual camo design i used small brushes and sponges. then lightly sanded it with fine sand paper to soften the edges.

That actually looks like great work. I paid to have all mine done because i just cant do that good of work.

That stock has a lot of pink in it on my monitor. Not sure if it's my setting or you have some pink mixed in??? Looks good either way.
