Pic request: Alumahyde II colors

I want to use Brownells Alumahyde II to refinish a synthetic stock but I can't decide on a color. I've also heard that the colors shown on Brownells website aren't really accurate to the actual color it comes out. I was just looking for some pics of stocks or other items that were painted with Alumahyde II and what color you used so I could make a decision. Thanks so much.

Bill

The colors are not accurate. I have several pictures posted here somewhere with AH2 featured prominently.

What terrain are you trying to match?

I painted my syn stock with that same color, as you can see in your picture and mine, they look identical. I really am not impressed with the color, however it's great stuff. I was hoping for more of a "coyote" color like M14sRock but it looked too light online. Oh well, live and learn plus the stock was a Numrich cheapo backup.

The Aluma Hyde II Coyote is a bit lighter than the Earth Brown. Depending on the lighting, they sometimes apear greenish to many observers.

I agree, sometimes when I look at mine, it reminds me of split pea soup.

Once the paint dries it can be re-coated with another color. I usually use the Desert Tan, but the Coyote matched my stock very well, and it still blends into our High Desert terrain out west.

I agree with both of the above posts.

The Coyote color is a good match for most of the SW including much of TX. A simple non-Hollywood camo job with Coyote, Parkerizing Gray, and a little OD is good for many areas.
