Hello I tried small paint brush, small sponge brush, and even a tooth pick but no luck neatly painting the raised letters. Finally an Artist’s fine paint stick did the trick. Then some high temp clear and Bingo! Anyone else do this? Pic 1 - Original Pic 2 - Satin Black Pic 3 - Gold paint stick on raised letters Pic 4 - Looking good Pic 5 - Applied the clear and all done!
