The last roundup: Gather materials.



A small knife to place sticker on stock is handy. I found this decal in the trash and knew I could use it later.
A roll of tape works as well as a large decal....actually easier. I did not have tape, so used the decal. If tape is used, use painters tape. Otherwise you may find your finish pulled off or the tape wanting to stay put. 1 roll of 1/2" cut in half lengthwise works well. Or buy a roll of 1/4" also.


I like placing tape in a pattern better than other methods. Can change as you go. Cutting out patterns works, I but not my method. Either works.


Work out the details as you go.



Place pattern so that the edges are roughly parallel to top of stock and at right angles to each other.



The wrist area will present visual challenges to sticker placement. Keeping a line straight on a curved surface can be done, but
it may be as good to leave un- patterned. Paint it and forget it if you want to.


Cover about 80% of the base coat with pattern. (Next step) Leave stickers on. Spray with next darkest color.
Let dry for a few days or completely, which ever comes first.









Tape over all except "accent" spots. There are few of these and they are the darkest. ( Or in my case, next to the darkest.) Use a shield when spraying these




Not much more to come,

Painting the digital camo accents

Cut a hole large enough, in a shielding material, to lay over the accent areas.
This an x-ray. Cardboard will work, Paper may work but may become paint soaked.


Lay over targeted area. Spray short blasts of paint. No paint runs allowed.


I use this method because I control the process more. Other methods work, but this one is mine.

Finished with basic painting

Peel off tape, and look for any adhesive remaining on stock.
A gum eraser works well for an oil free surface cleaning.

If I want a "worn" look, I'll use the eraser a little harder. Depends on the mood at that moment.

Next time I'll place on a rug with no pattern.





Need some follow up work on pattern.
---------------------------------

Seeing online makes it easier to decide. Will use 2 accent colors and 2 patterns, 1 dark brown (like the ones applied already) and black. Need to take up space in the base color with overlapping pattern to tie together better. To much pattern definition.
Will use the x-ray large template with the center hole covered with tape, except the pattern.

I do not execute this pattern often, so for me it is a learning process all over. I cannot tell if I'll like it until after tape removed. I like this one, but will like more with more
"accents"

How many hours?

Don't know........this is a relaxing project for me. I work on it when I can.
I will work on the BB next. Similar stock style. Most factory rifle stocks are designed for pointing while leaning forward, as a shotgun style. They detract from shooting well.

For you camera issues, if your computer has memory card slots, remove the card from the camera, plug it directly into your computer. From there it becomes a standard drive to which you can use Windows Explorer to navigate.

Thats how I do it....

I am on my 2nd Kodak camera, and there software likes to take over your computer.
So I learned on my 2nd Kodak. Card reader built in or get an Radio Shack
external USB card reader makes life simpler downloading off the card.

Bolt handle finish work.

Bolt handle was stippled once, and painted base coat green, but needed more work. It is hard to tell when is enough, so usually it is re-stippled. Hard plastic handle was purchased from Grainger and shaped to fit. I think this was a forklift shifter knob. Voids in plastic can be filled with epoxy.

Emery paper or sand paper removed excess and smooths surface. Medium to fine grit. Clamp in vice and go to work. Might take 2 minutes to do. Before.


After.

Paint again, and use same sand paper, emery paper to remove surface paint and leave paint in stippled concave surface.
