    Dr Chop's favorite kind of paint job - quick and dirty rattle can work!

    I've had ideas bouncing around in my head for a while on what to do with a few pairs of Ten I have. The black ink set is safe for now, but the black pair got the short straw.

    This is a frame I picked up from eBay for $20 I think, and I dropped in a new set of grey polarized lenses. The frame was pretty worn, and the matte finish was worn polished in a few spots. So it really kept it from feeling like it was "mine" when someone else got so much use out of it already (the black ink frame shares this trait). And the grey polarized lenses, while nice, aren't as ideal for bright days. I should have gone black polarized, in retrospect.

    Either way, they're getting modified.

    Here's how they started out. A simple, low key, black/black/grey colorway.
    Snakeskin /Battlefield Camo - Fun With A Rattle Can. - 930D9A9A-F9E5-42AD-A25B-1B6A1C949538-2977-000001E29B99FD64_zps99a745ef.jpg

    Here's how they look now.
    Snakeskin /Battlefield Camo - Fun With A Rattle Can. - 856E8FE2-5B02-4C95-89C5-74B635F3D073-2977-000001E25CEBCB36_zps3d2782df.jpg

    Snakeskin /Battlefield Camo - Fun With A Rattle Can. - AC8E1020-31AA-4C98-B947-E4D35D22A277-2977-000001E269358B59_zps3fe26e30.jpg

    I'm not SUPER happy with how they turned out. I compromised on my stencil a bit. The good news is the paint will rub off and I can start again, change the colors, add in some better greens and browns, really give it a good, organic look.

    That'll do for now.

    That was looking pretty cool.

    Have that same Ten but in newer condition, slipped on some RadarLock earsocks which kinda blend in. Keeping my frames black though as I don't have any other "mature" frame colors for casual wear. Was considering Black or Ice Iridium lenses to replace the original grey ones.

    I had another one, it got VR28 Black Polarized, then hydro-printed with Multicam.

    I have a brown smoke/tungsten polarized that I wear pretty often, and there's a black ink with OO red polar that I barely use (and I mentioned above as needing a mod of some kind).

    I never thought about adding rubber to these. I have plenty of pairs with rubber on them should I need.

    The brown smoke is a real nice one. Goes with the frame design really well.

    The rubber was just an extra measure for me. I'm just too used to having sunglasses with rubber ends.
