Im sure all of you have seen this more than a few times but I decided to do this coloring to my lowers. Im pretty happy with the way it came out. I just wiped the areas with some de chlorinated brake cleaner, heated them a little, etched in the crayon and then wiped away the excess. It was a lot easier than I thought.

How do you wipe away the excess? Dry cloth, or some kind of chemical?

Just a micro fiber rag. It doesnt seem like it works but it does. I prep the areas with De-chlorinated brake cleaner. It also helps to use the brake cleaner side of the rag when doing the final "clean up".

I did the "SAFE" in white and the "FIRE " in red on my AR the first day I brought it home.

Circular motions with the crayon help get all the gaps and nooks filled in properly. It can always be easily removed with a dental pick.
