KT camos some canvas items.....

Well, these items were originally black...some might have liked the "tactical" look but KT does not...He likes the blend into the background look! :laughing::laughing::laughing:

So here is a small belt pack with a few 12 gauge shells in it, a spiral wire cleaning brush, a flashlight and a hank of paracord to use with the brush contained within. No pic of it black, but the interior is black. First pic is the camo painted look, second pic shows the content.

3rd pic is of an originally black chest bag, also carrying some ammo and gauge adapters for a 12 gauge. This pic is of the front of the bag, Second pic is of the top of the bag, showing the harness set up.

These paint jobs were pretty simple. First sprayed with patches of dark woods brown, dark woods green and khaki. Once dry...two days hanging in the dungeon, then sponge painted the pattern with 3 separate sponges, 1 for each color. Then hung and dried another 2 days. It is a much longer drying time even in warm weather, because the fabric soaks up the solvents of the paint and takes awhile to evaporate. Anyway, here are the results!

Hope you enjoy. Just more ideas about how to take black gear and camo it!

GKL, you got a good eye! Picked up the od green of the Royal US Army wool blanket that KT used as a background for His Royal Pictures, using it on the left wall of your first picture.

KT has enough shotguns, most high capacity, but also several single shots, to outfit the entire Castle staff and guards! Just have to remember its headshots that count! :laughing::laughing::laughing: need to learn the Jedi method of mind control for weak minded zombies....what you are looking for is not here....just move along. :yes::yes:

Again, nice work! Any tricks to painting small flexible material?

Just a few thoughts....if the material is absorbant, like this canvaslike material, then spray your basecoat, let dry...could take several hours, then use natural or artificial sponge to apply paint, light on dark and dark on light. Spray a spot on cardboard, dab with sponge, then dab on item. Once happy with it, then hang up to dry. KT has a stand fan which is turned on to speed the drying process....not needed so much if outside temps are over 75 degrees F.

If the item is flexible, but not cloth, the paint will likely peel off after it is dry, unless you use some type of plastic or flexible primer.

Oh yeh, wear plastic gloves while handling item and spray painting, otherwise you will get paint all over your hands! :laughing::laughing:

Normally, on hard surfaces KT finishes off with a matte clearcoat, but His Majesty does not recommend that on cloth or fabric.

:laughing::laughing::lol::lol: The problem with mother-in-laws is they won't stand still long enough to get a good basecoat on them! Thanks for the Royal laugh, ugadigger!
