So I had some spare time this weekend, some spare AR furniture, and some left over paint from building deer blinds. You can guess what happened next. So how did I do?

Elaborate, that is a sexy paint job. I just took the blue off of a llama max i 45 for poops and giggles. Now Im afraid it will rust but dont want to spend any money on the cheap ole thing. Even though it is sexy as it is just bare metal and wooden grips.

Yeah, I searched before I painted and was deinitely influenced by Possum. First I sanded with a fine grit sanding sponge then I laid three base coats of the coyote to make sure I had good coverage. For the pattern I used an in can paint roller grid (it was .98 cents at Home Depot) which I placed as close to the surface as I could and lightly sprayed the green to vary the thickness. Some one else already posted this but it is a great how to:

I am going to put the painted furniture on the AR tonight and will post the pics asap. Thanks!

Both paint jobs are very nice. Kind of reminds me of something hidden under camoflage netting.
