Quick and simple desert camouflage for scale modeling using just a few colors and a little bit of hobby/poster tack.

Here is a materials list used for this example:
Cheap spray primer from Walmart (about $1 a can) for the base color. There are many brands of poster tack (I have Elmer's) and it is available at most grocery stores and pharmacies as well as Walmart stores and hobby shops. The main "tan" color is some that I mixed from Tamiya acrylics however, it is almost identical to Krylon Fusion's Satin Khaki (also available at Walmart). The dark grey lines are Tamiya Dark Grey (flat) #XF-24. The light grey is Tamiya Royal Light Grey (flat) #XF-80. As for brushes, I just used a brush thin enough to make the desired lines. Also, I thin my Tamiya paints with 91% Alcohol.

Here are the steps covered in the video;

Prime the model (or paint it whichever color you want your stripes to be)
Apply sticky tack pattern.
Spray the main body color.
Remove sticky tack pattern.
Add dark lines with brush.
Add light grey lines with brush.
