Colorizing frame engravings?
#1
I want to colorize some of the engravings on some rifles and pistols, mainly white. I've seen videos of people doing this online with like crayons or wax and stuff, but I'm looking to do something a little more semi-permanent than that. I want something that could be removed with effort, but stands up well enough it won't need to be done over an over and looks clean. Has anyone tried this or can recommend a product that works well I can try to accomplish this?

This is the sort of thing I have in mind to do for reference:

Thanks for any info!

I'm looking for a thread I found somewhere that described covering the engravings with fingernail polish. After it's dried, use acetone to gently rub off the extra, leaving just the polish in the engraving itself. I'll update when I find it.

Found it. It's on the "other" site.

Thanks for the info! I recently ordered a an airsoft clone of a weapon (4.5mm) to train with since ammo is getting so expensive, when it comes in I think I'm going to use it as a guinea pig to see how it looks before I try it on the real deal.
