Any tips for painting camouflauge

Posted in Custom Workstation

Have to paint some camo onto the pants of a six-inch DC Wild Dog and was wondering if anyone had any tips or suggestions on how to go about it? Any comments welcomed and thanks in advance'

Your camo pattern paint job looks great to me; nice job!

Thanks for the tips guys. I want the simple rout and just painted using two different greens and a beige. Here's the finished product, let me know what you guys think>

Rather than paint, another approach that you could take is decoupage. Paint your pants entirely in one of the camouflage colors you want, and then paint some sheets of paper, or some other thin material, in the other colors. Next, cut out a bunch of camouflage shapes out of your painted paper, and then glue them onto the pants in whatever pattern you like to create the camouflage. Seal the pants when you're done so that the decals never come off. This approach will result in really clean/sharp edges on the shapes and it's impossible to muck it up like you could with a slip of the paintbrush--if you make a mistake, just pull the hand-made decal off and reapply it till it lies the way you want.

I'm probably not the best person to give advice on anything but hope this helps, this was a commission Warhammer tank I painted and it is done in CAMO...(it was made awhile ago)
mine was done in the Grey/White/Black Camo and I started with the Grey as the base coat then I added the White in patches over the Grey (does not matter if they don't look perfect, next shade helps with that)..then add the black in patches in between the Grey/White .....I find it easier to clean up all the lines after the initial paint effect (CAMO) has been acheived

I guess I would paint it starting with the most visible color, like green if you're speaking of jungle camo. Then add brown and black on top of that.
