Wednesday Weapons Website of the Week: Camopedia

You probably didn’t know you needed a link to a wiki about camouflage uniforms patterns, etc., but if we were to give you one — this link to — do you think you can find something good to do with it?

Sorry for the brevity of this W4 this week, but, well, in the game of life vs. blog, sometimes blog goes home with the “Participant — 2d Place” trophy. On the plus side, we’re pretty much through the Ides of March without being assassinated, so we’re one up on Julius Caesar!

    Weird people have weird hobbies? Whatever; I’m kind of fascinated with camo. Maybe it’s like a puzzle or something, or those optical illusion drawings. From what I understand, the idea behind camo is to break up the shape of an object. I talked to a military friend, and there’s a bit more to it than that, but I don’t remember what he said. I get a kick out of trying to break up the surface of an object, without resorting to photo-realism. In fact, it would be interesting to see how simplified one could get, and still achieve the desired results. Here’s a link to a project I did with two of my boys; and an old picture of a Toyota truck I had. I was saving up money for automotive grade paint and supplies (expensive), and decided to have fun with the primer. Different stores define “gray” different ways, so I went around and got the various primers offered, and used those. This was done with no masks, save for the emblem; straight edged guards only.
