Why not just get it anodized?
One costs a bunch of money and the other costs 5 dollars
>>56165318idk lots of people camouflage their guns by the season so an anodized gun would be stuck in one pattern or color scheme were a spray painted gun could just be stripped and repainted in a few minuetsoh yeah and SOVL
>>56165318How do you anodize plastic genius >>56165381>trans tape
>>56165681Shit bussin senpai fr fr
>>56165681How many double kill is that camo ?
>>56165707It's a hidden camo for killing 5 toddlers as unintended victims in a drive by
>>56165681Very cyberpunk and dystopian. Nice.
>>56165795The pitbull pattern, nice
>>56165318you can camo your gun for $15 assuming you don't already have half the shit (you probably do).
>>56165318>t. noguns mad that other people own guns
>>561653182 raisins 1. cost and 2. it wears off in just 1 or 2 range trips and makes it look like you shoot a lot/are gay(operator)
I agree. I would never rape my rifles in such a way>Muh guns are toolsGuns are art, faggots.
>>56165355sooo truuue...I regret not doing it sooner
>>56165318Because getting drunk and spray painting guns is fun
>>56168317>"I can't paint guns: they're valuable!">proceeds to keep his domestic made AR that is still in production and made in the millions in a safe
>>56168919What is the purpose in making a gun look like is a snake - doesn't that defeat the whole point of blending in.
>>56169185>What is the purpose in making a gun look like is a snakeThe point is to disguise long straight lines by breaking them up. It fucks with the ability of the brain to do "edge detection", which is necessary to recognize things.
>>56170679Not helping your case very much>>56173344The point is he chose to break lines up with patterns of psuedo-scales which people ironically recognize as danger. Hell, there are bugs that try to look like snakes to prevent animals from eating them kek.
>>56173463>scalesAnon, think about the distances involved. A bug disguising itself as a snake works to protect itself from a frog or a bigger bug that might be a few inches away. It's meaningless at the tens if not hundreds yards distance that gun camo is meant to be effective at.
>>56165318Getting something anodized is a much more involved process and its still going to wear if you use the rifle. Rattlecanning can be used on anything and takes like 8 dollars and a non-windy day
>>56169185Its cool and snake patterns work fairly well to disguise long things among nature>>56173586It doesn't suddenly stop working at 50 yards, painting the thing solid brown would be way better than black, having any sort of pattern with earth tone colors is going to work comparatively well (picrel).
Because fuck you
>>56173844Very nice. Did you use stencils to achieve that pattern?
>>56168919Any tips on how to not fuck it up/overdo it? I've been wanting to rattle can my beater rifle for a long time now but can't bring myself to do it out of fear that it'll look like shit and I'll need to start over.
>>56173892Wing itThe penalty for messing up is that the paint will be a little thicker, you don't have to clean it off or anything
>>56173892Fuck around on cardboard first with differnt patterns as well as technique if you haven't spray painted before.Make sure the spray paint is not cold, or it will clump up and shoot blobs of paint.Tape off every thing important.If you're gonna do layers, make sure to give the paint 24 hours before you go onto the next layer.Shit will usually be sticky for a few days.Have fun.
>>56173463You're a retard.
what are the true minimum requirements for taping off shit? obviously I will cover the lenses and knobs etc on optics and lights but I remember the FTM about it being obsessive about like stripping it and filling it with tape, but I did minimal taping on my AK and it seems like it didn't change anything around moving parts.
>>56175602Trigger/trigger guard and inside of mag well
>>56175602Trigger, glass, mag well, windage numbers, muzzle threads if any are exposedTl;dr - cover anything that is important and you dont want paint on
>>56165318"Rattle canning" is a stupid fucking phrase. Why not just say spray painting?
>>56176420not him, but maybe someone might confuse spray painting with actual air brush tools or something. Rattle canning does sound urban trashy desu famalamadingdong.
>>56175602as someone who works in a shop that does cerakote and spends hours every day fully disassembling shit and then putting it back together it makes me cringe seeing people rattle can their guns fully assembled.
>>56165681what color is that?Rustoleaum maui blue, MTN planet blue, duplicolor miami blue?
>>56176420Same reason some people call soda pop
My first attempt, Im happy with itdark green, light green and some leaves and grasses and shitlooks like forest shadows
>>56165318Speaking of camo what do you guys think about stencils?
>>56165318>rustouse real fucking paint you toy ass niggapice very related t.graff artist
>>56173463>dur people think da scales is da dangerno its seeing a fucking SNAKE shape you fucking xeno.humans don't have telescopic vision like you fuckers.Gray hands typed that post.
>>56173463>the alien thinks the caterpillar is trying to disguise itself against humans>the state of alien shitposting these days
>>56182161at least they didn't ruin a micro uzi
>>56182168>t.graff artistget fucked faggot
>>56175602Manufacturer logo if your rifle is expensive
>>56165681The finger smudges from peeling the tape off the wet paint really make this photo
>>56175581Am I blind, cause I dont see shit.
>>56182168thats krylon you retarded faggot
>>56182168>graffiti artist>buys montanayou aren't an artist first of all. and you aren't a graffiti writer either faggot. you're just a little goober that I would rob.
>>56182168>Write his gay ass nickname in some retarded font on public property>"""artist"""I'd ask your to post your hand, but you already did, nigger.
It makes the cheapest of optics tolerable
>>56185571If it worked for my boy Kyle, it'll work for you
>>56185571That looks great anon, very nice work!
>>56173463Who the FUCK at Area 51 decided to give the ayyylmaos a laptop
>>56173892Get a little distance between the spray can and the gun. Start spraying away from the gun and do moderately quick passes. Basically youre trying to start the spray stream and pass it over the object, cutting off the spray when you sweep to the other side. Spray on just enough paint to get the color, anything else is waste. Thick paint layers are more likely to peel or chip off under use. Thin layers will look better and last longer.
>>56165318Sometimes cans are the only way to get the look
>>56168317Guns are art, and fucking up art is an art in and of itself
>>56179265> as someone who works in a shop that does cerakoteDo you know if the c-series air dry stuff is any good? How is it compared to the oven cure stuff?
>>56179265You're a baby. I tape off what I feel like I don't want painted and move on. People were begging me not to paint the trigger but I did it anyways and lo and behold it becomes evident people never know what they're talking about when they say fuddlore like "You'll get your trigger all mushy!!!!"
>>56169046this, holy shit
>>56165318I've heard that painting suppressors is bad because the smell of the paint cooking at high temperatures could give you away. Does the same apply for painting barrels?
There are many like it, but this one is mine
>>56188011>Ahmed, I smell the rustoleum from the infadel's gun across this building. He's definitely around here!Retard.
>>56188282>fighting muslimsHow old are you?
>>56182416Why would you specify that you wouldn't rob someone?As opposed to what?
>>56188011i haven't had issues with barrels, as for suppressors, you should probably have a cover anyway wo you don't burn a hole through your 300 dollar crye pants
>>56165681unironically kino and this comes from a fudd
>>56182332my niece dun got bit by copperhead and died cus of that
>>56185571Best one i have seen in a while
>>56165681awww shiiiiit he got 75 head shots
>>56168234Anodizing does not wear off easily, what the fuck are you talking about?
>>56189335I think he means the spray paint wears off.
>>56189340well yea sure but who cares?>imagen getting pissed somebody else painted something they paid forid get it if it was some rare milsurp but its a basic bitch ar
>>56165339One can of Rustoleum camo spray is $8
>>56179341Because they’re faggot northerners?
>>56189375He's saying that wearing off is a good thing because that makes it look used
its fun and costs 20$
>>56165318Did this today actually. Very happy with it. Stay mad, loser.
>>56179040But that’s called airbrushing, not spray painting. Nobody outside of the firearms community calls it rattlecan, and that’s thanks to faggot youtubers.
>>56189389it will if you actually use use it
Luckily stencils for this exist and are on sale
>>56185571Used soap as a mask?
>>56189431I've seen rattlecan on both car forums and model building forums
>>56189514hes being an autist most hobbies I've ever seen use spray paint to do SOMTHING.>3d printing>guns>cars and bikes>camping>off road sportsect ect guns is just another thing on the list
>>56175581Anything that a bird eats is going to have fantastic visual camo.However, I want to see any camo pattern up against at least 3 different relevant backgrounds.
This is a good camp pattern.
>>56190211So is this
>>56190211>>56190222>dubz and tripsis it ment to be? the new kamo of choice?
>>56190197lighting's different idiot
>>56168984Fuckin A right brother
what paint wont come off when holding it with hands? like isn't affected as much by hand oils
>>56189335Spray paint wears off easy, you illiterate faggot. Learn how to read, then kill yourself.
>>56190197Camo works, not going to take the time to scrounge for pics to convince some retard who disputes the effectiveness of something that's helped animals stay alive for millions of years. If it works for snakes 5 yards away, it work will work on people at moderate to long distances.
>>56165681actually goes hard
It usually doesn't look ugly if you know what you're doing
>>56190471No it isn't.
arts and crafts r fun
>>56182168No one likes your “art” you thick lipped pavement ape.
>>56165318rattle canned guns with the paint peeling off looks cool as fuck
Poop brown is the best camo color but nobody ever wants to paint their stuff poop brown. It's infuriating. Just paint your stuff poop brown, bonus points for cream colored dots.
>>56186973idk 99% of what we do is h series with some occasional elite. according to our guy the solvents in it are way worse so you need more ventilation when you spray it.
>>56190211what camo is this?
>>56191999Super mega awesome camo
>>56192060ahh thanks fren
>>56191896good morning sir
>>56165681I was very close to buying one of those with the comp on it. Something about that comp really triggers my cyberpunk-$5-gun-from-vending-machine autism desire. I was going to spray paint it a similar yellow. Apparently they don't make that comp any more. Eventually I came to my senses.
>>56165318Oh yeah let me just do that in my garage on a whim. Dipshit. Do you even know what anodizing is or how it's done?
>>56179265Yet you still haven't touched more guns than Lucas has rattle canned lol
