Camo paint jobs
 
Two Camo paint jobs that I did using Krylon Fusion Camo paint

Remington 710, it had an ugly gray synthetic stock, the barrel & action were in good shape and matte black, so I just did the stock

This is a Savage 110, the birch wood stock and the metal were in horrible shape, so I scuffed everything and painted it, I used cedar tree branches for the shading

Very nice.
Looks like a bit more than cedar. . . or I may just be used to Western Red Cedar.

very nice camo jobs! i use the Krylon camo paints as well. they are very durable if you do proper prep work before painting. the biggest key the prep work and getting the stock or metal completely clean and oil free.

i have done all of my black sythetic stocks in camo. IMO, the balck stocks just look cheap. the camo finish makes them look much nicer.

Like I tell the grandkids, "Camo is my favorite color!"

Also check out Alumahyde paint from Brownels. Good, strong finish.

here are a few of mine that had black synthetic stocks to begin with. i used the Krylon flat finish camo paints. i make my own stencils to make the patterns on the stocks, using a fogging method. that way i don't end up with sharp edges.
