I've tried leave and other materials for Camo. In the end I was never happy. Then I found Mylar stencils on eBay. What a difference! Using spray bombs or airbrush it turned out way better than anything I've ever tried.

Reaper is the one to ask. He does excellent work, but think he is in the oil patch right now.

I had a few ugly beater guns I couldn't possibly lower the value of so I gave it a shot with Krylon. First was an old Crossman 160 pellet gun I've had for many years. I used cedar bows as mask. Second was a Cooey 12ga single truck gun that was previously coated in bed liner, I used ferns leaves as stencils on this one. The last one I did was an old mossberg 20ga bolt with no blue left on it. I used grass for this one.

I'm still experimenting with technique, mask material and colour. I'll try a tri-tone job next.

Don't laugh, I'm still on the learning curve. :)

this isn't bad either:
http://forum.snipershide.com/snipers-hi ... ial-6.html

just a different approach,
i want to do mine with maple leafs in gold, and maybe a muted color too. still gathering examples to use as a gauge of what i like.

I haven't done a gun yet. However I did a canoe a few years ago for duck hunting. I did the intereior and exterior.
I used a combo of fake plants from the dollar store and some real leaves and branches.
It turned out pretty good, only issue was I used Latex for the base coat. If I did it again I would use oil.

Best part of a camo job like this is touch ups after a rough trip is easy to touch up and blend in.

Personally I would ask Serge aka Target Man to do it. In the off season he doesn't mind the extra work, some extra money, he has the time and a tonne of talent. The rest of the season, I would ask his advice. :)

I just bought a Benji Classic 22 from Watertown and had him ship it directly to Serge in Quebec for a custom paint job. I'm not good at stuff like that and would rather pay for all the shipping and for Serge's time to have a paint done right.

I can't comment on the price, that's something you'll have to work out with him. I will say it's exceptionally reasonable.
