Recently I have had a project come across my desk that has opened my eyes to the possibility of a low price paint job that is durable, fast, and is well camouflaged.

This is an idea I have been toying around in my head for some time but yesterday I painted an Angle and a 98 for Moati (Brian or Moe as I call him, SO's soft goods guy). His request was to have a fast paint job but one that would still concealing and looked good. He suggested an OD green base with tan lightly spattered over top giving it a sand finish. I didn't think much of it before and wasn't sure it would work with my HVLP gun but it turned out looking very very good and I only had minimal hours put into it.

Though this paint job turned out kick butt I have had an idea to take it one step further. Here is an example of what I am thinking about-

Paint a gun solid OD and like Moe's gun speckled it with tan (or black, brown... whatever works) but have sticks leaves and grass masking parts off from the spatter. That would give line break up, depth, color difference, and could be done in colors to match your camo that you wear or to the surroundings you play in and all for the price of a two tone. I haven't figured out what method of masking I should use but it does not have to be complicated to look good.

Now this is similar to what many people have done using the DIY method but this would be a professional Duracoat paint job and for a great price.

So tell me what you think, also I'll see if I can do a mock up over the weekend.

Heres a simple shot of Moe's Angle. I'll get better ones come Monday but this will give you an idea of what I'm talking about.

Guys...this pic honestly doesn't do the paintjob justice! It looks absolutely SICK! Everyone that has seen it has loved it. This is a great new option that Big Bone can offer.

Agreed, the picture lacks definition.

The have enjoyed great happiness with the two tone paint camoflauge. OD green and Tan are my favorites too.

I have done stuff like this before, i love how it looks. But Big Bone doing it... it must just look beautiful. Just a little suggestion for the masking, sticker stencils aren't very useful for doing this, just placing objects on the marker and letting them float alittle above helps add to the rounded look since it fades into the figure, well thats just from my experience buy you have been doing this MUCH longer than I.

i am curious, how much would something like that cost? i am very interested in painting my gun, but i want it to be done well (something i am starting to think isnt possible in my 1br 1bath apt and with my work schedule...lol) if it was for a reasonable price i would jump on something like this. i just want my gun to stand out, and be unique without a 200+ price tag. if this an option that is going to be implemented soon, at a reasonable price i will be the first one sending my marker in. any thought on having different options instead of just the sand like effect? maybe some basic striping, or blending one color to a lighter/darker shade of the same color? just my two cents for what its worth :P i am already getting ideas for a pattern to send my marker in for!

I agree that I'm definitely interested.
This is my sig. There are many like it, but this one is mine. My sig is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life. My sig, without me, is useless. Without my sig, I am useless. I must type my sig true. I must spell better than my enemy who is trying to judge me. I must type before he ridicules me. I WILL... My sig and I know that what counts in this forum is not the rounds we fire, the noise of our burst, nor the splatter we make. We know that it is the hits that count. WE WILL HIT... Before the Admins, I swear this creed. My sig and myself are the defenders of my forum. We are the masters of our enemy. WE ARE THE SAVIORS OF MY PROFILE. - Tippmann Owner #pi

I'd get it done if you masked the speckle with some natural foliage! That would kick some butt!

It's like you answered all of my custom painting questions with one post. I would be one of the first in line if it was not 150+.


And to think I almost painted my gun myself.... ;)
