So I was using Shoe-Goo to cover up my floss stitches and this is the first time I've used shoe-goo for a ghillie and this is what it looks like. Since I've just spent 6 hours sowing the netting on I'm kinda irritated that the shoe-goo might ruin it because its so glossy. Is there anyway to reduce the glossy look? I just don't want to go out into a night game and light up like a christmas tree in NVGs because of these dots.

I did try sanding but it will take way to long.





Or will it eventually be covered with enough mud and dirt that it won't matter?

Ok so I think I'm beginning to regret using shoe-goo to cover the floss threading. The spray eliminated the glossy effect but I'm not sure what to think of this end product.

One of the keys to concealment is shadowing which kinda works with this black spray with tan over but I may just be trying to convince myself ::)

No Flash (1 base coat of black then tan sprayed in bursts)

For those of you who don't recognize the base camo pattern its a US Night Desert camouflage that was supposed to make the wearer hard to distinguish in the desert / barren terrain with older Russian model NV optics.

Its a good idea but I'm using the shoe-goo to cover the knots and threads. If you've ever ripped something along the seam the threads that are left over are the ones that hooked through the cloth, the shoe-goo has to go on top to prevent any slippage in the thread that could allow the thing to be broken off.

Not if the purpose of the second layer is to just stick dirt to the top of the first layer... I would think.
My bad, I see what you mean.
I really doubt those dots are going to make you stand out, especially after spray paint.
