Looks good. Which method do you use?

I know of several;

- crayon (laugh, but one of the most common and it works)

- sharpie

- actual paint

I use the crayon the most. Doesn't dull or come out unless I want it to, then it takes a bristle brush to get it out. :D

Here are two rifles I did with a large sharpie (you basically smear it in and wipe away the excess with a paper towel). Keep doing this till it builds up:

(The forum auto shrinks it - which is awesome btw - but if you click the bar above the photo it will give you a much better look at the detail)

I've done almost all my guns with white nail polish. Lasts a looong time and looks good.

Yup, nail polish works.

But when you want to do a bright green for SAFE and bright red for FIRE on an AR - the red may be possible, but can't say my wife ever had any lime green fingernail polish.

So I jack my daughters bright green crayon for those. :cool:
