Ahttp://www.clarkcustomguns.com/meltdown.htm
A carry "melt" doesn't require heat. The gun just looks like it has been heated and melted. Files and sand paper along all the edges. You can tone down the edges, which is now typical, or you can push things to the edge for a true "custom" look.

Follow instructions on which ever coating you decide to put on. My long term test of "GunKote" started about 4 years ago on kitchen cabinet knobs. Still no flaking, fading, cracking, etc... But follow the instructions, exactly.
Nice looking piece by the way!
