    Default Winter camo video

    I'm assuming that this video has been posted before but I found it very interesting- My question is that "paint" looks like it covers too well to be whitewash - I'm guessing an oil based paint of some kind - any one have pics of helmets painted in this manner - all the ones I've seen pics of seem to be carefully painted as opposed to slapping it on. I've been told they used whitewash so they could remove it in the spring - any absolutes in this or did they use oil based paints?

    When helmets were camoflaged in the field, whatever material that was available was used. My first white helmet obtained in the 1960's was an oil base paint, not whitewash. In times of combat, whatever does the trick is what is used.

    Here are some examples of the differences Bob is talking about. An oil based brushed winter camo, a whitewash SS camo, and a mostly cleaned whitewashed SS camo.
