Default camo on my beech mini 14

camo'd the mini Saturday, shot the base sand color after sanding with a red 3M scuff pad. Bought a roll of 3'' blue masking tape at Walmart, tore strips to size and shape I wanted and applied them in the pattern I liked, then overshot with olive drab. I let it dry about an hour, then removed the tape and reassembled the rifle....
