  • Rifle stock painting (My way)

    It's winter and I'm already bored.

    I decided painting the stock of my deer rifle (tikka t3 in .308) was something to pass the time while waiting for the rain to end and the salmon to return.

    Supplies used:

    -3 colors of spray paint ( I used krylon fusion as it adheres well to plastic)
    -clothes hanger or wire to suspend stock
    -3m green painting tape in a wide form
    -cardboard for under painting area
    -tweezers
    -cutting board
    -razor blade(havalon)
    -pencil or pen


    I started with the mindset of ending up with a mostly tan stock so began with three coats of black.

    I allowed 15 min of dry time between coats(I have A LOT of time).

    While these coats were drying, I began to draw and cut shapes out of the painters tape. I found that placing the tape on a standard cutting board was the best way to draw,cut,and remove(using tweezers) for maximum "stick".

    Next step was to apply my incredibly creative mind(false) and scatter these sticky buggers all over the stock.

    After these coats, I overlapped a few more tape stickers.

      Then it was on to the next color. I applied three coats of tan, applied some more tape stickers, and then semi-clogged the spray can tip with spent paint dried onto the tip(creates speckled spray). Allowed this all to dry for three hours in front of small heater and removed tape.

        I then allowed the entire stock to dry overnight.

        I followed this up with 5 coats of clear coat.

            That's pretty cool. I just bought a tikka and was thinking about doing something similar.

              I think the speckled spray really pulled it all together. Well done!
              I think about hunting when I wake up in the morning. I think about it all day. And I think about it at night. The only time I don't think about it is when I'm doing it. ~credit to Carl Yastrzemski~
