20tac--Here's an H-S Precision Tactical thumbhole stock I just repainted after I had a new Lilja barrel chambered for .17 Tactical and installed on my Remington 700 BDL action:
I don't know if this is the kind of two-tone paint job you are talking about or not. I use Krylon Khaki Tan camo paint as the base coat and the Krylon Olive color for the little leaf patterns. I sprayed on a few leaf patterns with a little bit of reddish brown, but that didn't look real good to me, so I covered most of that up with khaki tan and redid the leaves in olive again.

For a synthetic stock, I'd sand it down with a very, very fine paper and then clean it all over with clean rags soaked in isopropyl alcohol. You need a slightly matt, absolutely CLEAN surface for the paint to key into

20tac--8mmMauser's suggestion to get the stock absolutely sparkling clean is spot on!!! Make sure it is completely dry before you start painting no matter what cleaning agent you use. I have never sanded down my stocks before painting, but it does make sense to have the surface a little roughed up to make for a better surface for the paint to grab onto.
