Hi all,
I remember seeing a while ago, a post about making a camo net using medical gauze (or something like that), but I can't find it again. Can you guys help me?

A method:

-Stretch out the appropriate sized piece of gauze over a sheet of cardboard, putting something between the cardboard and the gauze at the corners, so the gauze sits above the cardboard.
-Spray the gauze with aerosol adhesive (spray-on glue).
-Sprinkle shredded tissue-style confetti over the gauze. Sprinkle more that you need, because you'll lose all that doesn't touch the adhesive.
-Let dry and shake off all the excess.
-Spray with cammo colors of your choice and let dry.
-Remove from the cardboard backing and maybe spray the opposite side, if it needs it.
-Trim and attach it to your scene as needed.

Hope this helps,
