Hey Leo that is a really nice job. What sort of paint did you use. I am contemplating doing my turkey shotgun stock.

I flame treated the synthetic with a propane torch and then laid down 2 coats of appliance epoxy paint (tan) for the base. I used the spoon method to do the "webbing" with Modern Masters Metallic paint and then finally sealed it with Rustoleaum Ultra Cover clear matte.

That takes me back to a period when bows did not come camoed. My bro-in-law did a brisk business camoing bows in the back of his shop. We used spray camo paint and also like you layed down a light earth tone over all the item. We then used several other colors and outlined leaves that we went outside and picked up and even layed sticks and twigs down and sprayed over them. We ended up with about 3 or 4 layers when we were done. I even made cardboard cutouts and used them it is truly amazing what one can do with a little imagination. Like yours they can turn out great and only takes a little time and effort.
