You cannot electroplate a "camo" design. Electroplating applies a monochromatic color of the metal being plated such as gold, nickel, copper, tin, etc.. If you are looking to duplicate the camo finish typically used on shotguns for game hunting, I believe that the camo finish you desire is usually an organic finish (read paint) of some type, but this is not my area of expertise.Joel Tomasetti

Try doing a search on "graphic immersion". I think there is a firm in Georgia that makes the process tanks and graphics, I'm sure they can refer you to someone that can do what you are looking for.

I think you may be thinking of water transfer printing, Sylvia.
