Rifle painting guide

Hey all I just painted my rifle yesterday using the method here. I usually start out patient and then start to rush, which is a terrible way to go, but I do like my results. I usually will use stencils I make out of just paper and an exacto knife, but this way allowed me to read more posts about snipers









It's too bad that the paint will be (mostly) covered up from veg. or ghillie/burlap :(

One of the biggest things to remember when painting......


Quit while you are ahead! You can always add more, but never less.


It is way to easy to over do a paint job. Sometimes less is always more.

I'm using this method right now on my Type 96. At the moment I'm literally watching paint dry. I'll see if I can post the results when I'm done.

Ok, the pics are in. Keep in mind that they were taken by a web-cam, because I have no other camera. That means that the guns look shiny, but don't worry, they aren't. So here they are:

So what do you think? Be harsh.

the colors are a lil to bright for my taste. Might be just the camera, but the overall design you used looks good. Just needs to be darker.
Not sure where you play though

Yes flippin, it is a bit bright. Not as bright as the picture makes it look though. It will dull with use though. And the area I play in is almost as bright as the philippines. And it's getting pretty close to as humid as over there too. And to fuzzy, my gun looked awful so I figured it couldn't hurt haha.

It does look good, but a full out camo paint job looks more BAMF on the rifle

Thanks so much for this guide, I did it to my m24 today it came out alot like the thread starters. He just happens to have a cooler scope on his


Sorry Its a crappy camera. I also did a bad angle, as its darker than that and has more foliage on it than the picture shows. Ill get one up with a good camera in a few days. Thanks again!!

Rifle painting guide

nice guide and nice rifle :)
if no-one minds I will put my methods in the replies as I don't think it needs a new topic.
I will not claim this is my idea either I found it whilst looking for painting guides on the net but it is how I paint my rifles and thought it worth mentioning.

you will need :
sponges, sea sponges seem to work best.
paint, I prefer to use acrylic paint from the Games Workshop range but you can use any kind of model paint and even spray paint sprayed into a take away box or similar I prefer the GW stuff as it dries slow enough to wipe away any "mistakes" with wet wipes.
you will also need a clear coat if using acrylic for the paint job to last for this I use Games workshop "purity seal" which is a semi matt spray topcoat.

First prepare the rifle, either cover all the holes and working parts or strip the working parts out.
you may want to wipe it down with some alcohol to remove the oils from your hands and any other dirt dust and so on.
Cut the sponges into small irregular pieces about 1cm or bigger
cover the sponges with paint and dab it onto the rifle,
gentle dabs will result in small scattered fairly random dots/blobs of paint and if you press harder a more full result can be achieved.
Continue with all the different colours until the desired effect is achieved.
Remember to take a step back from time to time and have a look as this effect can be over done if you don't.
As I am using acrylic I spray the top coat on once I am happy with how it looks and leave it for at least 24 hours then rinse and repeat a couple of times to protect the finish.

reassemble the rifle job done;D
ok, pics (not that great I am afraid)

not me but the rifle was done by me and the mask is mine too painted using the same technique.

and of course credit where credit is due here is where I found how to do this.
youtube vid :

and a forum with the same method: http://www.ar15.com/forums/t_6_19/321800_.html&page=1
