I've only done an upper to match a factory cerakoted lower.
It is a good match though.

Nice hoard. What paint do you use. I like the arevoe color but the dry time sucks, I like rustoleum tan, sand and brown the best. Dries with to touch in minutes ready to shoot. If I ever had to grab one of my mint rifles to use and needed camo rustoleum would be the choice.

Rustoleum khaki and brown. I tried sand. It's much more yellowish. Not sure I like it. Here's khaki vs sand.

I like the fact that spray paint is not as durable as other options. I never do touch ups. I just want to break up the outline and also break up my aversion to abusing pristine rifles. Once they are painted I really don't care what else happens to them. The wear is part of the look after a while anyway.

Painted a couple of ACOGs this weekend, the paint is Alumahyde Magpul FDE. The color matched the furniture very well but I hope the shine dies down a little as it cures.  If not, I’ll hit it with some 0000 steel wool.

Just finished this 4-color Alumahyde paint job on my 450 Bushmaster deer hunting rifle.
I’m going for something that will break up the outline in the Treestand. My first attempt as well.

Now to let it dry for a couple of weeks before breaking down and assembling.

My only unpainted rifle, that I planned to be mostly black, became my main farm and hunting gun. So had to paint peanut butter baby poo aka Aervoe field drab.

This is my first try at painting a rifle.  I just built this as my day hunting rifle for hogs and deer in South Carolina. I used Krylon Camo. FDE base, of green and dark brown and some light green at end.  

16 inch Wilson Combat 6.5 Grendel Barrel. 13.5 KAC URX3.1 rail, JPLMOS carrier, Larue Trigger.  Omega suppressor (already FDE with heat wear)

Have you taken a look at the pinestraw thread?  Like the laundry bag mesh snakeskin, pinestraw seems like a simple way to get appealing, repeatable results (and it doesn't look like snakeskin).  Sponge technique seems to be less idiot proof, but has a few different types of results depending on how you do it.

And anything can be a stencil if you're brave enough.  Torn cardboard with jagged edges, leaves, painter's tape.

My camo thought process is bold contrasting colors that don't really form a pattern.

My camo technique is base coat of tan (rustoleum khaki on scope and lower, rustoleum sand on stock and upper in this case).

Then I tear a piece of cardboard like the flap of an Amazon box, into whatever random shape that it tears into with curves, etc and use that as a stencil. I vary between putting the edge right up to the gun and spraying the dark brown away, creating a hard edge that fades, and holding it further away from the gun to kind of create a less distinct shaded area.

Then I step back and kind of spritz the whole thing with dark brown, and then spritz the dark areas with the base color.

It creates the bold contrast I want without being too involved with stencils or masking (other than lenses, etc).

If you preheat your parts, then set the painted parts in front of a heat source, Aervoe will be cured overnight.

I’m taking a Photoshop class and my assignment this week was to create an advertisement on a favorite product you have at home, so I chose Krylon!

Below is the “ad” and also a standalone photo of the rifle.
