I clean everything with denatured alcohol the use Krylon camouflage ultra-flat paint. it wears off over time with use but that is an excuse to try some other colors.

How durable is this testor mix? WOW! Very nice camo! Did you lay branches against the rifle and then spray? Tell, do tell!!! LOOKS WAY AWESOME!

I started to do that but after a while i just held a couple smaller ones about 6 to 8 inches in length in my hand as a spayed then moved to a different spot and did the same thing until i got the desired look i wanted.

The Krylon ultra flat is available in various colrs at WallyWorld as well. I think I paid about $2 a can from them, it is $4+ at FredMeyer.

JTR, Thanks alot took some time about 2 hours to get it right and it holds up nice. I live in Hillsboro, Oregon and hunt in the scappoose area sometimes might try near the eastern boarder for western general this year with a couple buddies. How bout you?

I'm a bit South of you in Corvallis. never been a big hunter, just have an itch to paint a rifle or two. I've been trying to figure out how to do it and what type of paint to use. I've heard it's not good to mix enamel and lacquer. I'll swing by Fred Meyer tomorow to check out the selection. I'm thinking I'll start with a USGI M14 stock and see how that goes. Best Regards, J
