    Default Camo Paint Job

    Ruger M77 top tang 3006.
    Coyote Tan, Brown and Drab Olive Green with Matte Clear Coat.
    Done with rubber kitchen drawer liner.
    Don't know why, but the green does not show up as much in the pics.

    If you said "I let my pet snake crawl over it" probably would have gotten a few comments. Looks good.

    I think it came out great. Back in the day this was called "lacing" and "foiling". It was a pretty common technique for doing backdrops for other stuff on custom paint jobs. Especially in the 70's when the custom merials on vans were all the rage.

    Looks like it's becoming popular again but now on firearms. Do some experimenting,, you can get some pretty "Trick" results and you can almost get a real looking 3-d effect with this technique if done right. Multiple layers are the secret there.

    Nice job. I have trouble getting greens to show up in pics sometimes too.

    Thanks....This was my first attempt at a camo paint job.

    I took the rifle apart, stripped the stock and cleaned everything with acetone.
    Sprayed a three coat base layer of tan, let it dry and then did overlapping coats of green, brown and tan with the drawer liner, followed by matte clear coat.
    I masked off the action and bed area of the stock, didn't want to change the fit in these areas.
