Looks good man, how do you like the xd?
Thanks and i love it shoots great couldn't ask for a better 9
Nice job !
Looks good. Which method do you use?
I know of several;
- crayon (laugh, but one of the most common and it works)
- 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.
I've Used my wife's white mail polish, works good.
I've been using model paint and duct tape, works good
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.
"An unarmed man can only flee from evil, but evil is not overcome by fleeing from it"
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.
