Touch up Before and After

Here’s a good example of a film where I wouldn’t like to use an airbrush. The film/activator and a brush worked best for this situation. No color matching paint necessary. Just pick the general color you want, and dab it in. Works like a charm, but it does take some practice.

    @MidOhioHydrographics,
    Is that amount of touch-up typical? I've always wondered about the texture on rifle stocks and trapping air.

    I've done several rifle stocks. Those texture areas always do that (to me anyways). I usually just hand paint/dab the areas. Almost like "color by paint".

    Yeah Pretty typical. Usually it’s less, but this stock had a texture all over it, and there was more on this stock than most Most of the time we can just airbrush typical camo patterns, but w this pattern I just didn’t think it would look right unless I spent a ton of time trying to match all the colors correctly.

    @looch we like to do the same thing with the checkering, I think it improves the looks of the stock
