I am in the market for a new hand guard that I will get cerakoted in battle worn white. They come in black, fde and red. The only one currently in stock is the red.

If I am cerakoting it white, does it matter what the original color is?

Anyone with experience in cerakote would greatly be appreciated.

I am a hobbyist who does a lot of Cerakote.
It does not matter at all what the underlying color is.
When I do a multicolor camo job, I usually do the lightest color first.
But it does not really make a difference, the white will cover even the red underlying color.

Cerakote is super easy to do yourself. You need an air compressor, water filter, and a cheap spray brush like a badger. Practice on a metal tumbler or ammo can and then you are good to go on your gun.
