Painting camo?

Does anyone have any tips for painting camo on hoppers and masks or whatever? I know the basics of rough sanding to get the paint to grip, and using a base coat of dark green or whatever, but how do you get a good design layed out with spraycans?

When I first started i painted my sting ray completely. What you do is get spray paint, the put a few coats of like a dark sand color. Then when that drys spray green in random spots in like zigzag lines or something. It normally works.

or in various shaped patches and in some spots put a bit of each color overlaping while still wet, to mix the colors and blend in better.

Spray your base coat and then lay a few leaves on it and paint around the leaves. Then repeat with other colors until you get the effect you are looking for. Practice on a piece of cardboard first. In the army we just used sand, od green, brown and black.

Olive drab, Earth Brown, Medium Green (or Field Green) and black. Paint it all over Olive Drab. Wait for it to dry. Paint on some areas of medium or field green in a stripe going horizontlaly. Dry. Spray vertical stripes of Earth Brown. Finish it off with some tiger stripes of black, about 1.5 inches apart and going vertically. I just touched up my mask and did my HPA tank the other day.

Hawk, my marker is red.. I can't explain why, but I can't pull myself to paint it camo. When I get an autococker, the first upgrade I but if going ot be a can of spraypaint in all 4 of the above colors and I'll paint my backup.. I promise.

if you dont want something so permenant, something that you dont have to worry about screwing up because you can take off, theres some camo tape that you can use, and not just duct tape. Theres some tape that you can get at some sporting good stores thats not shiny, and it actually has a quazi-ghillie effect.

Javaman,

How you doing man.
Sorry it took so look for me to say something. Got to help my people out.

-Base coat. (the domainant color in your AO)
Make the first coat light, and then add another good heavier coat.

-Place a piece of mesh over the marker.
Do the other color in your AO, in stripes. Or blotches, whatever you want.

It will look like these:
