  • Hand-done tiger stripe paint job

    A student wanted me to paint their rifle stock in a tiger stripe-ish pattern. Here's what I came up with.

    For stencils I used blue painters tape that I tore by hand. I used Brownell's Alumahyde II for colors.

    Started with a coat of black, let it cure, then applied stripe stencils. This was followed in order by earth brown, coyote tan and desert tan. The final coat was OD green with no stencils, which made this the background or main color.

    The actual work didn't take very long, but I allowed each different color to cure for a few days before going to the next color. All in all, took about 2 weeks.

    Shortly before World War I, the German Kaiser was the guest of the Swiss government to observe military maneuvers. The Kaiser asked a Swiss militiaman: "You are 500,000 and you shoot well, but if we attack with 1,000,000 men what will you do?" The soldier replied: "We will shoot twice and go home."

              We had all colors of tigers over there; green, blue, purple, red, etc. I also drank a lot when I was stationed there.

              Tiger stripe is a generic term and does not have to actually mimic the colors of a tiger, just like butterflies aren't actually made out of butter.
