    Just wanted some feedback/constructive criticism. Basically cerakoted the entire slide in burnt bronze and then came back and sanded off the areas where it's dark and then

    Curious, was that air-dry or oven-bake? I like it either way, of course.

    Oven baked. Unlike duracoat i believe cerakote won't harden unless you bake it. Honestly the hardest part of the whole process is getting the parts to the oven without smudging anything.
