Is there any place on the net that has good quality files that I could use for printing and creating camouflage templates? I am interested in making some templates and using durtacoat or even Krylon cam paint for refinishing a couple of stocks and hand gaurds that I have around.

Thanks
Mike

The easiest thing if you are only doing a few weapons is to make them yourself. Cutting out random shapes, using graph paper while taping the back, or even using vegetation are all things that have turned out well for me.

This was one of my test projects to see how graph paper would work for a digital pattern. By not leaving all of the edges down, it gives a fade into the colors, which seems to work better than drastic lines in my opinion.

what tape do you use on the back, duct or electrical? How do you keep the stencil on the weapon/item?

I'm currently duracoating a bunch of crappy knives and an old SF 6p, practicing for my 2 duty glocks and eventually a refinish for my super90. The glocks will get cammied out. I just don't want them looking like ass as I carry them everyday at work.


Stevens - Stickman's threads have been a huge help. He knows what he's talking about!!

1. Duct tape, its all a man needs.

2. I wasn't really concerned with the edges all laying flat, as the the uplifted edges provide a slight blur to the outline, which works out nice.

3. According to Mrs.Stick, I know better than to use her oven around dinner time.....

I've used contact paper & cut out my own stencils with an exacto knife. Plain white contact paper like you'd use in the kitchen cupboards.

You might find a pattern that is similar to your needs.

Just go out into the yard and pull some leaves off a variety of trees. I've never painted one of my rifles this way but it sure worked great when I was painting my Bow.

I use the blue 3m painters tape. You can cut it with an exacto or simply tear it to avoid hard straight lines. It works great, and leaves no adhesive residue. Buy the wider (2"-3") rolls.
