Spider web paint?



Log in to see fewer ads
I would like to Spider web paint my OD X22 stock. Will it look OK to Spider web the bare stock or should I put a base coat down?
Also looking for the best mat clear coat too.

What color are you thinking about. Iíve done a few, using black webbing. This was my first, a few years ago.

Since that one, Iíve done three more
This second one , you can see, it was a redo of a the green Ruger Am Predator I originally black webbed , then redone to a burnt orange.

You may want to get an extra can of spray to practice.
The first stock was lacquer, this last stock was Truoil.

Ace hardware and it was $5 a can. I ordered them on line and had them delivered to my local store.

I have done a bunch of painting with assorted base paints and the best luck I have had is with a good quality Lacquer over top.. 2 coats and sometimes 3.
Deft Satin is real good if you can find it.

From what I know about the "web" you need a base color first.. I think... give me a link to the paint.. I'll check it... EDIT : I now see your stock is OD Green.. so if it's plastic all ya need to do is prep/clean it.. hopefully it will adhere well..I would warm it up real good... then topcoat with a good quality Lacquer.

PREP is everything.. stock must be riffed with around 200 gr. and then CLEANED/DUSTED.. I clean with Simple Green on a old washcloth.. then wipe once with 95% strength Rubbing alcohol... then dust/defuzz.. do not touch it now without gloves, oils from your skin are a issue...you must figure out a way so as while you are spraying you do NOT touch it.. I usually put a take down screw in a few turns and hang it from a wire in the center of the shop .. then the only place I touch it is carefully on the inside of the in-letting when I need to swivel it as I spray.. I have also ran a screw into the butt-stock hole/s and used it to hang.. then used the takedown screw to move the stock around while spraying. Get everything figured out BEFORE you start! And temp. needs to be above 60 degrees.. the higher the better.. do not even attempt it unless you have heat in the garage/shop. Lastly, overspray gets everywhere.. cover what you do not want overspray on wherever you are doing this.. ask me how I know .

Look at post #6 here and read his instructions... https://www.rimfirecentral.com/forum...d.php?t=539363
