    I'm sure you can get it from the same supplier who manufactures striped paint. I think they've even got a new line of polka-dot paint too lol.

    Couldn't resist....

    Merry Christmas

    years back i sent the apprentice off to buy striped paint and the little bugga actually did it by laying a 1/3 can of acrylic side down in the freezer till it set, added a 1/3 more of a different color etc then brought it to work.
    we got our own back though making him go around every department asking where the "fornicating tool " was.

    use enamel paint.
    Float the paint on top of water then dip the clean dry stock into it than hang it to dry.
    Hunting is relaxing just like Yoga except I get to kill something.
    If it Flies it dies and if it hops it drops.

    I get the feeling that it might be something to practice with a piece of wood first

    Andy I think what you are after is called hydro dipping. Selected colored paints are applied to the water in "layers" then stirred to break up the paint to give the camouflaged effect.
    But seriously @andyanimal31 give these guys a hollah https://www.facebook.com/caveman.net.nz/?fref=ts $130 for a camo job done right!

    Stick to your knitting oops fencing
