When it absolutely, positively needs to be made from random crap found in the back of my garage.

Testors applied with a brush........ LOL, No Im going to use krylon on this gun if I wanted to use duracoat I would have to order it ( I dont want to do that). So Im going to home depot tomorrow to get me some rattle cans. But what ever camo I decide to do I will be using pine needles as stencils.

Reason I ask is "plain" spray paint will not last long at all.
BUT..
if you bake it on the metal parts at 300* for an hour or so it makes it a LOT harder to scratch off.


Just don't bake the plastic parts at that high of a temp

I have AK's that I have sprayed and baked on with Rustolium "textured" in black that required sandblasting in order to get it off.

Thanks for the info, this gun is just a beater and I painted the furniture a gold color back when I worked in the body shop. I just got board with it and decided a camo would be cool. But baking is a good idea Ill give it a shot.
