Point being, Duracoat and products like it are not cost prohibitive to the point of preventing you from doing the job right the first time.. A Duracoat camo kit is almost as cheap as the three or four cans of krylon and it will last "FOREVER"... !
Whatever you do, don't use cheap spray paint.
My method for camo is pretty simple. Use the plant green as the second
coat, after the primer. Then use actual plants as stencils, using browns
and lighter green, etc.
I camo-ed my Mossberg 500, because birds in general have eyesight
which is roughly as acute as a dog's sense of smell.
