Painting lettering on gun parts (pt2)

Thanks for locking the original thread....



Does anyone have any suggestions on a method to paint, etch or stencil lettering on a lower reciever? I want to do the small lettering that is associated with the trademarks, safe/semi/auto etc.

What sort of paint would work best for this application? Are there very small letter stencils that could be used for such a project?

The idea is to do it on a weapon that doesnt have any trademarks... I need to actually draw them in by hand, or using a stencil as the parts are not engraved.

hope that makes sense....

the how to highlight youtube videos are a good start, but I need a way to actually stencil the lettering so it looks close to original...

Best way is to engrave it. They look great, and look professional.

You could get away with using a Lauer Duracoat spraypaint. You need an air compressor and a quality airbrush for application though, you cant really get away with a 20 dollar model painting kit.
(Well, you can, but most model paints are 'candy' and scratch off pretty damn easily)
