I ruined the stock on Man's 10/22.
Bought a new one from a member here.

Now I have a plan.
Gonna take the stock I ruined (stock is fine, finish is not) and I am going to paint it white then put black zebra stripes on it.

Anyone ever done something like this?
Any and all tips / advice will be greatly appreciated. \:D

Have done tiger stripes, but not zebra.



Find a pattern and use it or use painters tape. If you use a pattern, start with white, lay the pattern on, spay the black. Make sure your pattern is on card stock (heavy paper).

If you're using tape, paint it white, put the tape where you want the white parts to be, spray the black. After it dries, remove the tape.

After it's all done, either way, spray a couple of coats of clear coat to seal it.

Youtube is your friend. Hundreds of vids on there for diy camo.

Thanks.

Here are the patterns I used. You just cut out the light part with an exacto knife. Lay it on the stock and spray. Take your time, and use light coats. I should have let the paint dry more before moving the pattern. You can get runs if you don't.

Paint the entire stock black first

Then cover only the areas you want the stripe pattern on with cut out stripes from 2" wide blue painters tape

Then spray the entire stock white, let dry completely and remove the tape.

Then start the poly clear coat process, to seal and soften the tape edges, apply several light coats and let dry completely, sand and reapply again, repeat this several times until you can no longer feel the tape edges with your finger tip.

DO NOT RUSH THAT STEP, TAKE YOUR TIME!!!!
