No problem.
So you have laid down a green basecoat with long tape lines on top of it.
After that you lay down the black paint.
Finally, in answer to your question, you want place some tape just slightly above or below the tape from the first step.
What you are shooting for it to create a small exposed space for the thin tan line to be painted.
Notice the thin tan line here. (PIC)

Does this make sense?

Krylon is fine; it wont last as long duracoat or brownells but its cheaper and easier to obtain.

The colors sound fine, as far as tips go, both Tigerstripe and Digi howto's cover what you need to think about for painting.
Cleaning is probably the most important thing to consider. Oil (finger, gun, etc..) plays hell with paint. If the marker is not nice and clean, when you go to pull the tape off, the paint will peal with it.

Damn spiffy GP.

I havent really seen one done w/ those colors, but it really works. Kinda reminds me of the old WW2 Razzle Dazzle camo.

Good job man. So, any problems or tips you would like to pass on to others?

(I didnt have a marker to paint, so I used 1 half of a ruger 10-22 bullpup stock)
(also be sure to check out my <a href="http://forum.specialopspaintball.com/index.php?act=ST&f=6&t=21936&st=0#entry207875" target="_blank">Digi Howto</a>)
Howto: Paint Your Weapon Tigerstripe Style
By <a href="http://tacticalcamo.com" target="_blank">Wookie</a><img src="http://forum.moatipaintball.com/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/wink.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="wink.gif" />

<b>Materials</b>
[*]Matte Black Spray Paint
[*]Green Spray Paint
[*]Tan Spraypaint
[*]3m Blue Painters Tape


<b>Clean and Prep</b>
Start by cleaning and preping your weapon. Please see my <a href="http://forum.specialopspaintball.com/index.php?act=ST&f=6&t=21936" target="_blank">Howto Paint your marker Digital style</a> for more info.

<b>Apply the basecoat</b>
It can either be green or black. I went with green, which made the final product more black. (as you will see)
Remember to apply a nice thin coat. You want just enough paint to color it, not drown it.

<img src="http://tacticalcamo.com/HOWTO/Tigerstripe/tigerstripe_howto_basecoat.jpg" border="0" alt="IPB Image" />

TIP:
If you spray too close you will get drips.
If you spray too far it will glob in the air and give you the dreaded 'orange peel' effect.

Allow it to dry. You can bake it to speed things along if you wish. Dont let your oven get above 110F. (put a towel in the door to prop it open)

<b>Taping</b>
Tear long strips of blue painters tape and apply it to your weapon. (make sure and tear both sides (my photo only shows 1 side torn)

Lay out the strips along the length of your weapon.

<img src="http://tacticalcamo.com/HOWTO/Tigerstripe/3mtape.jpg" border="0" alt="IPB Image" />

<img src="http://tacticalcamo.com/HOWTO/Tigerstripe/tigerstripe_howto_basecoat_taped.jpg" border="0" alt="IPB Image" />

Spray it with the black spraypaint (or green if you used the black as your basecoat.
Allow it to dry.

<img src="http://tacticalcamo.com/HOWTO/Tigerstripe/tigerstripe_howto_black.jpg.jpg" border="0" alt="IPB Image" />

<b>More Taping</b>
Now apply the 3m tape along the edge of your previously laid tape. You want small little lines of tan;
Less is more at this stage. I actually used an airbrush to get in close, you maybe not be able to do that with a spray can, so you may want to mask off more than I showed in this picture.

<img src="http://tacticalcamo.com/HOWTO/Tigerstripe/tigerstripe_howto_tan.jpg" border="0" alt="IPB Image" />

Allow it to dry.


<b>UnTaping</b>
Pull the tape off by tugging it against itself. This will help 'cut' the paint and reduce the chances of paint peeling off with the tape.

Enjoy, <a href="http://tacticalcamo.com" target="_blank">Wookie</a>.

i did it just a bit different. after the first coat O black i did a tan and then im going to tape it up next to it then add black again. that would still work right?
