    Lots of different kits out there...

    i have used this in the past..worked great. Just important to remember to layer them when applying. Good OG green or tan for back drop color. Then apply these..Good luck and have fun

    Paint is probably cheaper but I know they make vinyl wraps too that look pretty sharp and last a long time. Something to think about.

    I don't have any stencils but I've made some with a roll of brown paper and a razor blade. Pretty simple. Each stencil make two different ones if you flip it over once the paint dries. Plenty of good paints out there to choose from too. Sounds like a fun spring project

    I read various ways to do it. Some say start with lightest color and other say start with darkest to light.
    So how do you all do it

    I did my last camo job just the opposite actually. But then again, it was a saw grass type pattern. I'd suggest practicing on some cardboard or something and get it like you want it. Either way it's gonna be a fun project.

    I was thinking that the dark paint will go over the light paint better than the reverse, if the tape misses in a few spots...but sometimes it's dangerous when I get to thinking!

    Put your base coat on and then just get some bursh or tree branch lay them on your boat and paint over the top lightly works great.
