Finally, onto the last step! For the last step, with your fourth color, you will want to make the different colors here blend in more and take up about 5% of the case's surface area. I decided to lightly spray Earth Brown a few extra inches away from the case so barely any paint sticks to the surface.

If you desire, a clear coat can be applied if you so desire. Personally, I decided not to on this specific case. Let the case dry overnight or so before reinstalling any computer components. Most importantly during all of this, is to be creative and try hard and it should turn out to be a work of art. If you are taking the camouflage approach, it is important to just let enough time dry between different colors and to don't over worry in the beginning if it is looking like authentic camouflage. Good luck to all of you who decide to paint your cases. Once again, cheers go out to MountainMods for their very nice U2-UFO cases.
