Well, I made my first effort at painting a gun this weekend. I used the Aervoe paint recommended by Pat Rogers, except for the matte clear coat. I could not get a single can of the Aervoe stuff, so I had to resort to Krylon for a clear coat.
I actually made a mistake and should have used the dark green last instead of the forest green, so it looks "greener" than I envisioned in my mind before I started. It is hard to even see the dark green now. I'll just leave it this way until I need to re-do it.
These are the best pictures I can get with my photographic skills.
