    this muzzeloader is a .45 cal cva. got it a few years ago for $49 on clearence.

    it had some rust on barrel after it sat in the case behind my truck seat for a few weeks. so i decided to camo it. it is a deer gun anyways and i dont want to be seen so heres what i did.

    took krylon fusion kaki and olive and satin green and flat black paint.

    dissambeled gun entirely. put a towel in the reciever and around trigger assembly to keep paint out and taped over scope ends.

    rubbed with rough brillo and cleaned with ammoina windex.

    start with darkest color first (olive) and then kaki blended in from top down 1/2 way. in nature light colors at top and shadows blend in towards bottom of objects.

    then laid fake leaves over the stock and sprayed over them with various colors starting with light to olive to flat black. never use gloss it will shine. one leaf was real from an evergreen bush. created a great effect.

    did the scope and barrel in the same fashion. this paint is very fast dry about 15 min or less. so it doesnt take long. then re assembled gun.
