I tried to do it the right way. I am pretty new to paintball but not new to doing things right. I did use rattle can paint and frisket paper but I disasembeled and striped off all the old paint. I sanded and cleaned with solovent, degreaser, soap water, and I wore glove the entire time easy to have access to I'm a Firefighter/Paramedic. I also sprayed the entire thing with adhesion promoter.
I did use a mutlicam prist out for some of the shapes but it is no were near real multi cam. I would not even attempt that. Besides in real combat you very rarley see a gun that match a pattern exacly.

Yes I know about the air line my vest and remote are on the way. I just hooked it up to make sure it still worked after being apart for a week plus. I am in no way a master painted but I think it came out pretty good for only about 40-50 bucks. I know not every one can afford duracoat or a pro job so if you have any ?'s please ask.

Looks very nice for your first paint job. I'd add a little more color blotches to break up the green a bit more, but you did a very good job prepping and all that. I wouldn't worry too much about the line- you can always wrap that with camo tape or something similar- the most visible parts are usually your hopper, barrel, and body, and you've got them covered. Keep us posted, and a few pics in the field would be cool to see.

Thanks yeah I would have liked to break the green up more. The pic really does not do it justice there is really 3 diffrent greens OD, Bomber green, and the krylon green it really does do a nice job.

I think it looks great. Yeah, it may not be the prototypical Multicam but it doesn't have to be (mine doesn't either, atleast not yet). It certainly is better than black! Nice job w/ all the prep work, that'll pay off when it's not flaking & falling off after a few days of play. The shapes look great & nice work on the fading as well. One little thing you could do - if you'd like - is add the scattering of smaller dark brown then light tan shapes over the top w/ negative stencils, that'll add some more dimension & break up the solid green a bit more, just a thought. You get an A+ from me!

tippmann14 I really belive the prep work is the secret to stop chipping. You can see what I did on the top but if you dont want to repaint your entire marker you can get some "flat" clear it must be flat Krylon makes one that I used and I put like 5-6 nice light coats on. Also you want to make sure your painting at low humidity and the proper temp. Right now in FL its sunny with low humidity. If you put the clean on properly it should stop or at least slow chipping
