I used camo spray paint from the local hardware store, and put a satin clear coat over the top.
I sprayed the green from the bottom, and the tan from the top. This way the scales get a little more depth to them because of the spray angles. It looks pretty sweet. And the diamond back pattern and colors work great out here on the prairies!
Notice below on the top diamond, top right face, how the line on the brown somewhat fades away into the tan? This happened accidentally when my female stencil lifted up while I was spraying. I think I like the effect it gave and when I paint the rest of my gear I'm gonna make sure all the diamond stencils don't sit right on the surface. Let a little bit of spray fade that line away!
I hope you like it as much as I do!
