Just finished making up some Shoot N See paper targets after watching a couple of interesting youtube videos. The weather is just starting to bad so I wont have a chance to see how they work untill tomorow.
The targets are pretty simple, neon green paper with yellow gloss waterbased spray. Then a coat of black oilbased gloss over that. The concept being that the black flakes off of the yellow.
One thing I learned for the next batch is; apply a generous amount of waterbased. I feel like if it isnt on thick enough the oilbased just wont flake as easy.
Ill submit a photo when I can get to a computer.

i seen this DIY last year and was considering attempting it until i figured it was just too much effort to bother. I opted to buy Gamo paper targets which come in a box for like $11.00 for probably a hundred or so targets?

they may not blow a bright orange hole in it but meh...
good idea but not for me i guess. :|
