Have you ever wanted to paint your AR-15, but didn't know how?   This instructable can help.  This is how I used spray paint to create a MultiCam camouflage pattern on my rifle. 
Note: this is NOT an Airsoft gun... this is the real deal. But this would work equally well on an Airsoft gun (I think)

Check out video of the finished product!

<p>I've read this many times and what I don't understand is how do these &quot;stickers&quot; stay on the rifle and not blow away as soon as you start spray painting? This isn't double sided tape, just regular painters tape sandwiching a sheet of wax paper, so there is literally nothing to hold them in place as you paint. What am I missing here?</p>
<p>The wax paper is just the backing, basically. You peel the painter's tape off of the wax paper after cutting it. I guess you could use a single layer of tape on the wax paper, instead of sandwiching it, but that way you get two stencils with one cut.</p>
<p>I started with my P Mags just to get a feel for how to do this with perfection before I start on my AR 15, but I noticed when I laid my base coat that it came out very blotchy and you could still see large parts of black. It took at least 4 layers of this coat to look nice. Did this happen to you as well or did I do something wrong? I cleaned every mag off and made sure there was no grease.</p>
Great write-up, and the end result looks awesome. A friend recommended taking some 00 steel wool and going over the clear coat to give it a flatter finish if you want a little less shine.
Did u put the camo stickers on the gun itself before spraying on the kaki?
What optic do you have on there?
