I got nothing. Sometimes for whatever reason pics dont come through

I copied this on my 700 ADL in 7mm mag. Didn't quite get the marbleizing spray as even a pattern as I wanted, but it still looks pretty good. Curing clear coat now. I disassembled rifle and taped off what I didn't want painted. I didn't want to add any pressure points to the action or barrel as the rifle shoots better than I can. It has built in pressure points on the muzzle end.

Thanks for the heads up on the marbelizing spray. I just finished up my dove and duck gun, and it looks great.

My duck gun has taken a good bit of beating with no wear issues. I think the clear matte finish does a pretty good job of keeping the paint intact.

Nice jobs,
I did this on my old ruger 10/22 truck/ boat gun. Wood stock was looking rough and barrel had some surface rust. Tan black and brown, followed by some wet sanding and matte clear.

How do these paint jobs hold up? Any flaking or scratching of the paint? Do they get sticky at all over time?

How did you highlight the script on the Glock pistol? Spray pain and then rub away with paint thinner? Looking to do this to my Glock.

I did this on my old Remmy .243 and it turned out awesome. Just bought a airbrush and plan to try a modified version using it soon.

Heck yeah, man! Looks great. I did something similar with my Ruger American and love it. It's cooler to make something that no one else really has. Great work, man.
