Yea, that's a good picture of it, nice one jack. I knew he didn't use palm fronds, that's just a popular medium. Obviously if you use palm fronds in an oak forest, it's not quite going to work right.

You're the master jack.

EDIT: found a higher res shot of the same image that can be found here.

EDIT2: and the krylon camo paint can be found at this site. You should be able to find it at ACE hardware.

Its been pretty cool seeing this cannon develop. Throw some stripes on it, although it looks purdy slick with the gloss...

Looks ok with the gloss, but it'd be much better with camo I think. I'm going to use the leaf method on my Tippmann A5 whenever I get it.

Completely unrelated side note, my spacebar squeaks every time I push it. it's getting to be something of a nuisance.

I'm thinking about adding the stripes tonight or on Sunday. The only colors I have right now is tan and white. I might go with a different color scheme.

Yea, I wouldn't do tan & white myself. Obviously, it's not my cannon, but just throwing my two cents in there.

The trick to doing that is to paint the whole thing the color of the smallest stripes, then put tape over that when it dries and paint over that with the next color, so when you pull off the tape, the original color will remain under it.

I decided to go with the tiger stripe. Olive drab matt finish with Black stripes. Just waiting for my wife to back with the paint. I hope it turns out good. I'll post the finished picks tonight.

What do you think of the pattern?

Pfff...that is so lame....

Oh I remember now...It´s illegal where you live so it's exciting!!

If you are so keen on screwing up the frontal lobe development, you make one with a marihuana-leaf pattern...


Well..to each his own I guess...
I sounded a bit unfriendly there..It's not you pizlo, it's the thought that drugs are cool...I get a bit tired of that, being a bouncer and all...
