    Paint in the shapes you created using the other camouflage colours you picked. Common camouflage colours are dark green, brown, grey and tan. Paint in these shapes using a medium-sized paint brush to stay inside the lines and allow some parts of the wall to still be tan. Allow the paint to completely dry.

  4. 4

    Apply a second coat to the new colours and shapes you painted. Allow the paint to completely dry.

  5. 5

    Erase any pencil lines if they are visible.
