LilShooter strikes again with her camo technique. This one is my Savage 17 HMR.She says the shop is too hot for her in the summer, but the paint dries faster.Maybe I should get her air conditioning and a business license. :blink: dbPosted Image

She cuts out designs with copy paper, holds them over the base colors as a mask, and then sprays away, moves the mask, sprays again.db

That is definately a great looking paint job! I would be the proudest father on Earth if my young child had a talent like that! (though I am still very,very proud of the little stick figures my son draws :) )

Krylon has five colors of ultra flat camo paint. Those are the ones she uses. Of course when I am helping her hold some of the masks down, I get a fair amount sprayed on my fingers and hands. I would guess it is the price of being both a Dad and helper. :D db

That's exactly what I use. Do you put a sealant over the Krylon paint? The reason I ask is that my brother and I have noticed that our sunscreen is having a reaction with the Krylon Camo pant. It makes it sticky again months after we painted it and then starts peeling off. I'm repainting a couple spots for the third time today and this time I'm going to go over the whole thing with a flat polyurathane coat to see if it helps any. I was curious to see if you put a sealant on or not. For the record we are using the Coppertone Sport Dry SPF #48 that seems to be reacting with the paint.

Thanks for the notation. I don't use sunscreen, but Lil'Shooter does on occassion. If you are going to place another coat of paint over your gun, I would make sure to clean the sunblock left on the surface before recoating or the same issue may arise.She hasn't sealed the paint jobs with anything because we didn't want any glare from the surface of the stock. I'll have to see how they wear, and make adjustments accordingly.db

Thanks for the advice. I ended up using some fine sandpaper on the parts that were pealing from the reaction the the sunscreen. Mainly on the stock where my cheek rests and on the forestock where my hand goes. The light sandpaper removed the effected paint. I then repainted with the Krylon paint. I used Canary Palm Fonds as my stencil as I have in the past. Then I put about four coats of Polyurethane over it to hopefully protect the paint from getting that reaction again. Because of my English, Scotch, Irish, Swedish, Norwegian, and Danish ancestory I have to wear sunblock or I suffer badly. I used the polyurethan that is not glossy but it still makes it look shinier than I like but it is the price I guess I must pay. If this doesn't work I'm thinking of stripping it all back down to how I got it and giving up. I try and post a picture later. Thanks once again for the advice about removing the sunscreen.Jason

Just a hint here on clear coats to cover your flat camo paints. The satin or flat finish spray should be used over a gloss polyurethane finish. You put the gloss on over the flat camo and then the satin or flat clear coat on last. The reason being is the gloss finish is the hardest and most durable finish. But you want it non glare so you put the satin or flat over the clear gloss. If you read the cans they tell you about this for exterior uses. I know this because my father owned paint stores and sold paints for over forty years. You're bound to learn something being around it so long. :lol:
