Thanks for the suggestion on using the protective clear acrylic. I wish Krylon made a plastic camo grey but oh well.
But they do have this textured shimmer line
. Looks interesting.
Wouldn't that paint look weird on a gun? I mean, it has an weird texture, and it doesn't seem flat. I suggest you to use the ultra-flat one.
To paint it, you should remove handguard, pistol grip, stock, and mags, or mask them.
And also, when you paint, do it in little coat, wait the first coat dry, then go for another.
