When every thing is dry. Spray paint with a tan paint that is as close to the chest color as you can.

I did TWO coats.

Step 8: Painting

When the spray paint is dry you can go ahead and paint the edges with a brown paint I used light brown and black to get the color that I liked.

Just let it dry for about an Hour
