i acutally used something similar to a scotch brite pad. i bought a kit from duracoat and it came with a degreaser, a single 4 oz. container of one color of duracoat, the sanding pad, as well as a sprayer to apply it. all for $30. it's enough to do 4 guns they say. i found it's more like 2, but i do about 2 coats on my guns.
here's a link to what i ordered:
DuraCoat Shake 'N Spray
just so you know though, the sprayer thing on the right can be found at home depot for around $7.
here's my mossberg 500, the last gun i did. that's british DPM green, the flash on my camera brightened it up. you can see where i painted the bolt
