Im late to this party, but if you havent started yet I may be able to offer some advise. I have coated more than I can count. Prep is key. Sandblast your parts. Clean them thouroughly with acetone once blasted. If you can, parekerize the ferous metals. Once ready, shoot your base color. Keep nice even sweeping coats. t will be dry to the touch in half an hour or so. Put some heat on it to speed things up. I depending on how your stenciling your camo, I would wait several hours between coats. If your sticking shapes on (masking tape, low tack mask, etc) if your using leaves, sticks, etc. and just spraying through em, and they wont really contact the base coat, then just go to town as soon as your brush is clean. Once all parts are coated, wait three days to re assemble. Once assembled, put it away for a couple weeks and dont touch it. That is truly the hardest part. Once plenty of time has passed, You may clean, lube, and sight it in, and place it back in service. Onelast thing, If possible, bake all parts after coating. If not, once again dont worry about it. Thats it. Hope this helps. Any questions just hit me up on my website,

I use a $20 B&D toaster oven for baking smaller parts afterwards. Fits on my workbench.

Good investment.
