    I know it's probably over played but I really like the way the Mod 2 came out. It breaks up the black a little.

    Thanks! I'm not sure if you have ever done it but just be sure to use non acetone remover to clean excess off or you can have big problems.

    A long time ago, we used oil paint sticks. Once they "set" nothing would take it off. I haven't seen them for sale for a long time. I heard that the new oil paint sticks from Shiva are permanent if you use a heat gun to cure after 24 hours, being careful not to burn it.

    Yeah I've heard there's not much room for error with that method! What I like about this is I can change the color or take it off completely if I get sick of it.

    True. I painted a couple of my front sights a while ago, and was very glad that I was able to take the paint off easily when I wanted to.

    I've seen this a couple times and have thought about doing it as well. What do you use for the color?

    I color filed my XDS today with silver and was quite pleased with how it turned out. ImageUploadedBySpringfield Forum1451539757.138143.jpg ImageUploadedBySpringfield Forum1451539778.040894.jpg ImageUploadedBySpringfield Forum1451539787.668561.jpg

    I did red on my XD today. I used finger nail polish but it did not show the color as well as I expected.
