Default Custom Camo Paint job

Hey guys, I am thinking about giving my dodge w250 a custom camo paint job... Was wondering if anyone has any experience with doing this. I dont wanna just throw a buncha green, brown, and black paint on it... I've seen custom DIY jobs that had leaf prints all over it... Looked kinda cool. Any ideas???

Method #1-Take a set of woodland cammies, copy the shapes and use your greens browns and tans to paint the pattern. let the paint mist so there are soft edges on the pattern. Then make a half dozen big stencils for your black or tape off the shapes so there are sharp lines when you over lay em. This gives a 3D effect to the paint if done right. Done this many times on rifles and equipment and turns out great.

Method #2-Buy case of paint and case of beer and just have fun. You can always paint over it if it doesn't look right.
