Or did you just scuff it up/ sand it?
What are some places that you would recommend to send it to have the cerakote applied professionally but not too expensive.
More prepared than most. Less prepared than many.
Who was this directed towards?
If you were referring to okdonk's right above. His is done with the "H" series, which is the bake on. The color is a custom blend of mine. And it was sandblasted before coating. The prep work before applying Cerakote is pretty tedious, but is absolutely necessary. I got into it because I had most of the necessary tools at work already ie. sandblasting cabinet, air compressor, paint booth and ventilation system. All I had to buy was a good airbrush and the mixing tools. It's definitely not a cheap process, but in my opinion the results are well worth it!
I took apart and re coated my 300 BLK pistol Friday evening. Put it back together on Saturday.
It was burnt bronze.
It's now Smoked Bronze (this is a custom 3 color blend) the one in the back is my PSA build which is burnt bronze, just to reference the color difference. I can't have 2 builds the same color now can I?
