It is just as easy as any other camo job. You first need to pic your colors. Winter camo is made up of white, gray, and black.

White is your base coat, then gray and black are your pattern effects colors. Here is what I would recommend in doing this as I have done all three types in the past, winter, desert, and forrest.

And the most important part in doing these jobs is planning.

Several rolls of 1/8 size pinstriping.
(This will allow you you to layout your design nicely after the base coat)

Several rolls of masking tape
(tape off around each pattern)

Several collections of newspapers
(to cover unwanted areas with the paint you are using

Make sure you have a good imagination picture in your mind on how you want this to look. Take your time and you will reward yourself with the outcome. These types of paintjobs are usually flat colors, not glossy nor semi glossy.

When you are done, then take wet sandpaper and lightly wet sand everything after you are done to blend in the patterns to give it the one coat look instenad of the 3 stage on top of each color look.

A good reference to all these patterns is to look on the web and use google to come up with the camo pattern you desire.

US Army Air Corps (current Air FOrce) did a study back in WWII on the best camoflauge color for painting airplanes---to hide them during an over-the-horizon attack.

Apparently, pink was the least noticable.

Perhaps the grey/black stand out and mimic "natural" breaks in contour.

Red ya still need the shadows that the sun casts in the snow. Alot of different snow patterns, some are actually pretty good looking.

The quickest way from point A to point B, is through the mud.
