Default self camo

i have been looking into camoing up my own stuff and from a lot of web surfing have come up with,"water transfer printing" for the best way to do this. so now i've found a starter kit and have found places i can get more ink film an such didnt know if any of you have or do this already yourselfs. looks farely easy. there are a lot of home and shop video's on youtube about this and i found a place called mydipkit.com sells these "starter" kits for 99 bucks. im thinking i can camo a few of my boxes and other misolainious things to get it down n then i got three guns and a few scopes and a crossbow i think i could do for a fraction of the cost of having it done. what you guys think

Has no one tried this or looked into it ? Well I think I'm going to pull the trigger and order a kit n see how it goes and if all is good I'm going to order enough to camo every girly thing in my house. Lol well every thing I can get away with that is.

Never done it.

I saw some posts from that company in our manufacture forums awhile back. Looks good.

Looks like your the guinea pig on this one. Show us how it turns out.
