Sadly, if you want specific color names, I can’t give them to you.  Other than Panther, the other colors are all mistints.

This project couldn’t be simpler.  I used the same technique I described yesterday, using white as the base coat.  When the top coat colors were almost dry, I wiped off some of the paint.  Once stained, those areas became the parts that give it the worn and weathered look I love so much.

So, I stuck them on with scotch tape.
