    Alright guys, being laid off I have had alot of spare time on my hands when my 3 yr old isn't keeping me busy. So i thought i would try something new.I had an extra stock lying around for my yugo sks and I've been wanting to try out my artistic abilities by painting some digital camo. I really wanted to put it on on my Marlin XL-7 but i thought it'd be smart to do the spare for my sks and see how well it looks first.So, approx 8-10 man hours later here we go. I think I did decent for a first attempt, to critique my own work I think next time will need smaller squares. And you probably can't see it in the pics but some didn't stick too well, so a little paint ran over on to other colors. ...oh and I won't be laid off for too much longer, gonna be moving to Dalton, GA around Feb. 8 for a new job, pretty excited about that.

    Equipment used:
    Krylon Khaki-first coat
    Krylon Olive Drab-second
    Krylon Brown- third
    Krylon Crystal Clear Flat-protectant
    Razor knife

    For the stencils I used wax paper and the painters tape.

    I would change the title from "Attempted" to "Succeeded"!

    Great job Bulldog.

    +1 on the smaller squares for the Marlin. [​IMG]

    Not bad at all! I like the idea of smaller squares as well but I think you did a good job.

    Looks like you went from good SKS to damn good SKS.
    I was going to gray/black/white urban camo on my AKM but decided against it since I'm just going to change the stocks anyway.
    Really good job man.

    yea, thanks guys. Ruzai if you are changing stocks maybe you should go ahead and do it to see how your hand is at it. I really enjoyed doing mine.

    I'll probably try one day during the summer on a spare stock I have laying around the house just to see if I can pull it off. If I can do it well enough I might start doing it to some of the stocks of my rifles that need a good camo job.
