Honestly it was easy and I was lazy. Normally I freehand it with an airbrush but this time I just rattle canned it. First I painted it Krylon cammo forest green than I tapped it all up and cut the design I wanted out of it and painted Krylon tan then I retapped it and cut the parts out for the black. Then I used Tamyia waterbased flat clear on it. The Tamyia paint wont react to the solvents like normal oilbased paints would. Other than some scribe lines you see up close it came out as I expected and cheap and thats what I wanted.
