Not finished yet,  my varmint rifle build.  Cerakote is Magpul Foliage Green and Gunmetal Gray 50/50 to approximate Zink phosphate Park.  I have a 26" Lilja barrel chambered in .20 Practical awaiting an oven large enough to bake it in.  Going with a JL Billet handguard, the color of which is yet to be determined.  Maybe Burnt bronze to match the wood, or just Park like the rest, haven't decided.

Super Clean! I tried a Multicam Black and while it looks alright in pictures you can feel where the stencils are.
Anyone have tips to get a smoother overall finish?

Midnight Bronze lightened up with FDE on the receivers, factory anodizing on the rail and light. No filters on an overcast day. I just tell people it's "earth bronze". Couldn't have imagined it any better than it came out.

I'm challenged!   First time I've posted photos in about 10 years
and I messed it up.  They were right side up on my phone and
flipped when I posted them.  Back to the drawing board.

Edit:  I think it's working now.

First Cerakote.  This was a practice-run, and I'm fairly happy with the results.  I had never done any sort of air-brush like work before, so everything was a new experience for me.  This was my first AR15, that I bought from a store.  I've since built several other much nicer AR15s from parts, and wanted to get some practice in on my least nice guns before I started painting my more expensive ones.  I'll probably paint my next gun in a week, using a similar style, and similar colors.

My only self-critiques, which are very minor (I love the results) is I had difficulty making thin coats, and there's some splatter in a few spots.  I got an air-brush instead of a HVLP, to hopefully remedy that, and make it easier to work with small quantities of paint.  I also wanted slightly higher contrast, so I got some white paint as well.  I ruined a "disposable" ($30) optic when I put it in the oven, so I got some KG GunKote so I can air-cure optics and electronics.  I also purchased a bunch more stencils.

Some beautiful stuff in here.  I'm contemplating getting a BRN-1 Chassis for my Howa Mini.  I was thinking of getting it cerakoted in a Kuiu Vias pattern.  Are there any applicators that are more recommended than others?  I was also under the impression that you could only cerakote metal...guess I was wrong.

Not a problem at all. Media blast will either remove the old finish or give it tooth for a new coat.
