I wanted to share an idea. I'm not sure if it's ever been done. If so, credit to the originator. BCUSA has given me a lot of insight and knowledge recently, and I wanted to give back. I really enjoy camo and concealment. I like the digital stuff but find the colors sometimes difficult to match where I get my 'dirt time' in. MARPAT woodland is my personal digital favorite. ACU I find utterly useless and don't own any pieces of gear that have that particular pattern. After reading about folks using leafs, bramble and brush to paint on camo, I thought of this idea... painting camo with puzzle pieces to attain my desired effect... Is this idea outside the box, or truly inside the box?! Hehe. used a combo of 4 flat finish camo paints, Walmart, I think OD, will dry flat. after the the first of 2 light browns used. The bin with dark brown applied. finished products... Of course, results may vary. You may find that you'll spend a little more time adjusting your puzzle bin to accommodate getting a good pattern on things that aren't flat/boxy. Flatter, smooth sided shapes work much much better. I have a Remington 597 HB that'll get painted next and then onto an AR. I don't mind the paint chipping and exposing the black underneath. I like that 'used' look, personally. For those seeking a more permanent finish, consider using a flat finish clear coat. You can obviously use different sized pieces or even something totally different to add to the desired effects. The serious folks use leaves and brush that are going to be in the area they're expecting to need concealment to give proper shape blend to the environment. I've painted a few pieces of gear this way. It's quite a bit more time consuming when you add harvesting your silhouette material. I hope this is useful to someone, take the idea and run with it! Special thanks to @NattyBo for prompting me to share this idea.
