Just painted the engravings on my xd9. Tell me what you think
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.
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.
With my GLOCK all I use is nail polish too.
I am having trouble getting the white residue off, any ideas?
Sink + wire brush.
You did a gud job but honestly i wish the only markings on any gun was maker,caliber & serial number (wish there was no serial number needed)
Clideray44, what did you use to color in the lettering? I used nail polish ans nail polish remover rubbed lightly after the polish dried worked for me.
I used white nail polish and got most of it off with nail polish remover, I just can't get the small white haze off
Knife will do it just be steady and light to the touch. CLP will help over night if you want to restart
Couple guns I have done for ppl and they turned out nice
Cool idea guys. I know what I am doing tonight
How are you applying the model paint ? I've heard a toothpick...and nail polish remover for mistakes but was worried it could get messy or harsh chemical - permanent...
Sharpie - now that's creative and I like the idea of just wiping it off - assuming it comes off. How many layers does it take ?
Crayon - OK - that's outside the box (no pun intended) - how do you apply it ? Crush it in n wipe or brush out excess ? How long does it last ?
Wish I had a junker to practice on so if I screw it up I could just laugh about it. How do you prep the surface - wipe it down w rubbing alcohol ? Does any of the above need to be sealed w a clear (nail polish etc.) finish ?
